Meredith Mitchell Vineyard
Meredith Mitchell Vineyard was established in 1990 by Susan Meredith and Frank Mitchell on a 104 acre site located at 450-650 ft. elevation in the Coast range foothills of the McMinnville AVA. The 25 acre vineyard is planted primarily to own-rooted Pinot Noir (1988) Pommard clone, with smaller blocks of Pinot Blanc (1996) and Pinot Gris (1995) and utilizes low input, sustainable farming practices to preserve the true nature of the site.
The combination of own-rooted, mature vines and shallow, rocky, broken basalt, sedimentary soil consistently produces intense fruit with complex layers of aroma, flavor and structure. These characteristics are showcased by several leading Willamette Valley winemakers in the creation of Meredith Mitchell single vineyard designated, award-winning, ultra-premium wines.
The vineyard is managed by Susan And Frank underlining their philosophy that "the best fertilizer is the owner's footsteps".
