Wine Maker Notes
By combining grapes from a variety of appellations we created a wine with complex layers. We selected premium vineyard sites throughout the Willamette Valley, including Domaine Danielle Laurent (Yamhill-Carlton), Grand Cru Estates ( Yamhill-Carlton) Hyland (McMinnville), Zena Crown (Eola-Amity Hills), Willakia (Eola-Amity Hills), Bailey (Chahalem) and Monk’s Gate (Yamhill-Carlton). All of the vineyard sites embrace viticultural practices that reduce or eliminate the use of pesticides which can have a negative impact on the soil’s health. The vineyard sites were closely monitored to ensure the maximum quality of fruit. Harvest decisions were made based on fruit flavors and sugars.
