Our Wines

Marine & Basalt Soils

Marine sedimentary and basalt are the most common soil types found in the McMinnville AVA. Vineyards often see variation in soil type from block to block, and winemakers play this to their strength by picking blocks separately and making wine that is block­‐designate and/or a perfectly balanced estate blend.

Long Hangtimes

Our vineyards sit at higher elevations in a protected weather shadow of the Coast Range mountains. The unique climate and elevation of our vineyards leads to fruit that ripen slowly and can hang longer on the vine without danger of mold or mildew, creating wines with intense flavor and structure.

Wines of Intensity

With 1600+ acres planted to vine, our Pinot noir wines feature a strong backbone of tannins and acidity and a massive palate of black fruit, spice, and earthy flavors. The white wines share a similar personality, often acclaimed for their brightness, texture and fruit forward profiles.
