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.
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.
