Alexana Wines was born of Dr. Madaiah Revana’s love of the great wines of Burgundy. In the spring of 2005, Dr. Revana began a search for both the ideal region and an experienced winemaker with the goal of making Pinot Noirs that could rival those from Burgundy. His search ended in Oregon’s Willamette Valley, where he met Lynn Penner-Ash. Lynn’s reputation stretches beyond the borders of Willamette Valley where she has crafted world-class wines for two decades. She has established herself as a premier winemaker of Burgundian-style wines with her label, Penner-Ash. Wine Spectator said she brings “the perfect blend of science, artistry and passion…. Her signature style has brought a new perspective” to winemaking. Lynn was aware of Dr. Revana’s vision and commitment to producing world-class wines. She knew of his Napa Valley winery, Revana Family Vineyard, whose Cabernet’s produced by winemaker Heidi Peterson Barrett have quickly gained status as among the best in Napa.

  • I was recently in Oregon, for the annual International Pinot Noir Celebration, which is a splendid reason to visit Oregon’s wine country, though you don’t need such motivation to be wowed by what you’ll find in McMinnville and the surrounding areas. While tons of Pinot were in fact tasted and consumed during that long weekend, today I want to ta... Read More

  • Alexana Chardonnay 2012

    Snoothrank:

    40% in new FO for ten months Lovely nose shows leesy notes with a light but obvious oak note. Bright acids, gorgeous lively quality in the mouth, opens up on the midpalate with delicacy and freshness, then this turns a bit simple on the finish with green apple and some unripe peach notes, though there is nice acid drive on the moderately long f...

  • Pinot noir has become the great alternative. When you don’t want to give another big red wine as a gift it opens up a world of possibilities. Immediately appreciated by name alone, Pinot seems to have developed a certain cachet as the thinking man’s red wine, though there is little evidence to support that. Perhaps it comes from the history that... Read More

  • Alexana Riesling Willamette Valley Revana Vineyard 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Bright and slightly creamy on the nose with passionfruit, guava, floral and peachy aromas that fill the glass. A little sweet at first then very light on its feet with lovely acidity that is fresh and taut yet well integrated. The fruit is a bit more gentle on the palate than the nose promises but this has lovely freshness to its lime, green app... Read More

  • Alexana Pinot Gris Revana Vineyard 2011

    Snoothrank:

    ~ Editor's Choice ~Very pretty lessy/floral aromas greet the nose followed by jammy peach fruits and even a bit of red berry fruit with subtle hints of cream and licorice. rather medium full bodied and frankly rich in the mouth, this has terrific acidity supporting lush apple, peach and citrus flavors. The acidity lingers on the long, vivid fini... Read More

    Wine review by BRUNOHOEPERS


  • To a certain extent there is a general sentiment that Pinot Gris(gio) of a certain price has two responsibilities; and those at a lesser price need share in only the primary responsibility and that is to be refreshing. With the exception of Alsace Pinot Gris, which can often be refreshing but are just built within a different paradigm in mind,  ... Read More
