While the Momtazi vineyard is well known, it is far from ordinary, starting with its location in the far east of the McMinville AVA. McMinville is better known for kooky hotels and the best nightlife in the valley than for world class vineyards, but Momtazi is the proof that this is one well rounded AVA.
The fact that the Momtazi family farms these lands biodynamically may have something to do with the end quality of the wines bearing the Momtazi name. Or perhaps it's the relationship the Momtazi's have with the world class winemakers who seek out their fruit. In any event, it is evident to anyone paying attention that something special is going on in this part of McMinville.
