In the northern 60 miles of the Willamette Valley, between the Willamette River and the Coast Mountain Range, are a series of hills where the best Pinot Noir vineyards are planted.
Volcanic in origin and with varying soil types, they include the Eola-Amity, Dundee, Yamhill-Carlton, Chehalem, and others.
We work with vineyards perched on the hillsides of these areas, and have planted our estate vineyards at elevations of 500 – 850 feet.
This leads to fruit that has small berries, thicker skins, and is later ripening with complex flavors, excellent acid structure, and the phenolic profile of age-worthy wines. Our estate vineyards are planted to both heritage and Dijon clones of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.
