At Illahe, our goal is to make wine as naturally as possible from the soil to the bottle. This requires working by hand on small lots with age-old techniques and materials. Our focus is to make and grow quality Pinot noir and white wines that express the vintage and their varietal characteristics. We don't use enzymes or additives and we don't fine or filter our Pinot noir. Some of our lots are made entirely by hand with no electricity or mechanization. We use a gentle wooden basket press and age our Pinot noir in French and Oregon oak.
