As a grower and wine producer since 1999 in Oregon’s Willamette Valley, our handcrafted wines begin in the vineyards we own and farm. We emphasize low yields and careful hands-on management of the vines to produce wines that express the unique characteristics of our vineyard sites, including our older vines planted in the early 1970s.Unique soils and terroir combined with careful farming produce wines that speak to their origins. Small lot processing and fermentations are followed by very gentle pressing, to provide for purity of flavors and support development of complex aromas. We never rush the wines through the cellar. Our top barrel aged Pinot noir wines see 18 months of barrel time, using the finest French oak cooperage.
