Nemarniki Vineyard
Chehalem Mountains AVA
Willamette Valley, Oregon

Nemarniki Vineyard is a picturesque site in the Chehalem Mountains. A chance meeting occurred while winemaker Matt Vuylsteke rode his bicycle by the vineyard and met Diane Nemarnik. A long conversation led to many years of working together and a great friendship. Leading with aromas of bright red raspberry and coffee into a palate of cocoa, cane berry compote, and spice, this Pinot Noir is built to age gracefully.
