As any wine expert will tell you location is the most important factor when it comes to wine, where the grapes are grown is what makes a wine unique. Our estate vineyard is perfectly situated at 450-500 ft. elevation in the heart of the Ribbon Ridge Appellation in the Northern Willamette Valley in Yamhill County, Oregon and consists of a total of 16.4 acres of sloping contiguous south facing hillsides of Willakenzie soils. Vineyard site preparation began in the Summer of 2002 and planting of the first four acres was completed in the Winter of 2002. We celebrated our first crush from our initial 4 acre development in the Fall of 2005 in the third leaf of our new vineyard. Also, in the Fall of 2005 we started development of our next 5 acres of vineyard which will begin to come online in the Fall of 2008. For our new development we have selected clones of a certain character that we believe have the potential to set our wine apart and allow for more complexity in our wine by utilizing clones from vineyards that have adapted to Oregon and more specifically local climates and soil types. Clones, of course, are not the only factor, root stock, sustainable farming practices, non-irrigated vines, proper canopy management, low yields, among others, are all important factors. Our philosophy and long term goal is to make a world class Pinot Noir that reflects the terroir of our vineyard. Read less
