St. Innocent Winery was founded in May 1988 by Mark Vlossak, the current winemaker and president. The winery is located in Salem, Oregon, at the southeast corner of the Eola Hills, in the mid-Willamette Valley.
St. Innocent produces small lot, handmade wines from a nine of Oregon’s best vineyards. The philosophy behind the winemaking at St Innocent is that the function of wine is to complement and extend the pleasure of a meal. The characteristics of a wine should enhance different food and flavor combinations – this interaction amplifies the pleasure of a meal. To this end, St. Innocent wines tend toward higher acid levels, and more diverse and balanced flavors.
In the spring of 2006, St. Innocent purchased an interest in Zenith Vineyard (formerly O’Connor Vineyard) located in the Eola-Amity Hills. This 133 acre site has 81 acres planted. By 2012, 20 acres
of Pinot noir will produce 2700 cases of St. Innocent estate Pinot noir.
