The Dundee Hills is a north-south oriented ridge of hills located 28 miles southwest of Portland and 40 miles inland from the Pacific Ocean. A number of unique climatic and topographical features distinguish the Dundee Hills from its neighboring regions. The most obvious is the distinct red soil which has made this portion of Oregon’s Willamette Valley justly famous. The Dundee Hills, particularly on the eastern side, are dominated by the Jory Soil series, which is rich in iron, well drained and only moderately fertile. These are all important factors for concentration of flavor and complexity within the developing grape. And the grape in these parts is Pinot Noir.

Another important factor affecting the climate of the Dundee Hills is the region's inland position within the Willamette Valley. As wet coastal weather patterns move across Oregon from the Pacific Ocean, rain falls heavily on the Coast Range (as much as 135 inches per annum). As you move further inland, rainfall progressively lessens. In the Read more »

  • Stoller Family Estate Pinot Noir Rose 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Soft red cherry fruit on the nose shows subtle hints of woodsy spice and perhaps an incipient note of spicy mushroom. Round and a bit soft on entry, this is nicely balanced but shows a slightly richer, softer side of rose. The mineral tinged flavors of red cherry and hibiscus show nicely on the palate and glide onto a fresh and juicy finish wher... Read More

  • Winter's Hill Dry Rose Pinot Noir Dundee Hills Oregon 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Spicy on the nose with lightly candied suggestions of red cherry and strawberry fruit that show excellent intensity and purity. Nice acids open on the palate, which shows a hint of richness and lovely, pure, and slightly savory flavors of strawberry, forest floor, and a hint of spice. Moderately large scaled and fleshy, this is beautiful with a ... Read More
