Harmony Achieved by
Blending the Best
Oregon’s wide range of world renowned grape growing regions offers great diversity, giving us the ability to select from an array of vineyards that give us versatility in style and a broad range of characters to enhance the final blend. The diversity of these districts along with a lengthy growing season create wines with intense structure, and suppleness, while maintaining a vibrant acidity that sets them apart from other wines.
North Western Oregon
Oregon’s North Western area is the largest grape growing region. It has a temperate climate and balanced marine influences, both of which are well suited to growing cool climate varietals. It’s no surprise that over 80% of Oregon’s Pinot Noir comes from this area.
The most consistent region for Pinot Noir in Oregon is the central hills made up of numerous mountain ranges and valleys. It is also one of Oregon’s most diverse district in terms of microclimates – a true diamond in the rough.
South Western Oregon
The south western terrain in Oregon has a proven track record for growing world class Pinot Noir. The elevated landscape and volcanic soils are derived from the convergence of three mountain ranges.
