Antica Terra is a rugged 40-acre parcel nestled in the Eola-Amity Hills AVA of the Willamette Valley owned by Scott Andelson, John Mavredakis, Michael Kramer and Maggie Harrison. The vineyard sits on a gently sloping hillside and siltstone and formed from old alluvium - la antica terra. The vineyard was first planted to pinot noir in 1989. When we acquire4d it in 2005, we began developing twenty additional acres and worked to refine the varital mix and upgrade clone-rootstock combinations, to realize the property's full potential. Vine yields are kept low to develop concentrated flavors as well as to hasten ripening before the fall rains. The vineyard management practices we employ strive for an ecological balance between the vines and the surrounding oak savannah habitat, while emphasizing techniques that enliven the soil and nurture the overall health of the vineyard. It is our hope that the reverence we bring to the management and care of the Antica Terra Vineyard will allow winemaker, Maggie Harrison Read more »

Bright and light on entry which shows an attractive nuance of candied almond followed by a very clear core of fruit on the palate driven by bright acidity. Perhaps a bit lean, this is quite mineral driven in the mouth with tart orchard fruit and citrus accents that take on we... Read More
