Founded in 1983 by Oregon native, Jim Bernau, with the dream of creating world-class Pinot Noir, Willamette Valley Vineyards has grown from a bold idea into one of the region’s leading wineries, earning the title “One of America’s Great Pinot Noir Producers,” from Wine Enthusiast Magazine. Willamette Valley Vineyards approach is to grow, by hand, the highest quality fruit to produce wines of distinction, that are truly expressive of the varietal and the place where they are grown. All the vineyards, the Estate Vineyard, Tualatin Estate, and Elton vineyard, have been certified sustainable through LIVE (Low Input Viticulture and Enology) and Salmon Safe programs since 1997. In 2007, Willamette Valley Vineyards became the first winery in the world to use sustainable cork stoppers certified by the Rainforest Alliance and Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) standards. In 2010, Willamette Valley Vineyards released their first Oregon Certified Sustainable Wine (OCSW). Willamette Valley Vineyards commitment Read more »

  • Amity Vineyards Riesling Willamette Valley 2008

    Snoothrank:

    Quite mineral driven on the nose with a waxy edge to the slightly dried yellow fruit tones. Light on entry with mineral tones and a pithy edge to the light, fresh citrus fruits tones up front which turn more towards green apple on the back end. Cleansing acids drive through the fresh finish. 88pts Read More

  • Ponzi Vineyards Riesling Willamette Valley 2008

    Snoothrank:

    Very complex on the nose with really layered notes of dried flowers, herbs and minerals over light fruit ones. Very lean in the mouth yet very fruit driven with intensely floral inner mouth perfumes with a core of sweet peach fruit that hints at honeycomb. This is really lovely yet stumbles a bit on the relatively short, uncomplicated finish. 88pts Read More

  • Willamette Valley Vineyards Riesling Willamette Valley Dry Riesling 2008

    Snoothrank:

    Showing a bit of evolution on the nose with a touch of petrol and very dry, dusty earth over light lemon ice fruit tones. This smells very Riesling. Downright austere in the mouth, bone dry with clear, uncomplicated mineral laden yellow berry fruit. Theres a touch of banana peel on the backend and a hint of evolved, oxidative character as well ... Read More

  • Elk Cove Vineyards Riesling Willamette Valley Estate 2008

    Snoothrank:

    Very Riesling on the nose with very white floral tones and lacy soil tones over cool, crisp citrus fruits. Lacks a bit of integration on the green apple, lime and peach. On the finish this really shows excellent depth of fruit with intense acid driven peach flavors. This needs some time to better knit together but has all the components to be ex... Read More

  • Willamette Valley Vineyards Riesling Willamette Valley 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Earthy and floral on the nose, recalling green tea. Huge acids right up front are brought into balance by the noticeable sugar. The fruit flavors of apricot, red apple peels and citron are intense yet cut with a fine mineral edge. The finish is long and quite firmly structured with an attractive brightness to the fruit. 92pts Read More

  • Elk Cove Vineyards Riesling Willamette Valley Late Harvest 2009

    Snoothrank:

    Intensely floral on the nose with clean lemon blossom notes that smells fresh but not sweet. Sweet on entry but with excellent balancing acidity giving this nice tension on the palate. It is fairly viscous, with flavors of over-ripe red apple and strawberry fruits that turn a touch spicy on the slightly sticky finish. 85pts Read More
