Vineyards

Oregon’s Willamette Valley is comprised of American Viticultural Areas that represent different soil types and microclimates impacting the profile of wines from those sites. Our wines are grown in four of Oregon’s distinct viticultural areas, or wine regions.

We have a small test vineyard on Parrett Mountain, but also manage long-term contracts for blocks at six vineyards located throughout the Willamette Valley. We think that this creates diversity between our single vineyard designate Pinot Noir and adds complexity to our Willamette Valley and Heredity blends of Pinot Noir.
