We are fortunate to work with a selection of the top northern Willamette Valley vineyards, covering five unique sub-AVAs - Chehalem Mountains, Dundee Hills, Eola-Amity Hills, Tualatin Hills & Yamhill-Carlton.
The diversity of soils, climates, elevations found in these special growing regions creates some fascinating wines and allows us to share the stories of these small, family-owned farms with you.


SHEA VINEYARDS

YAMHILL CARLTON AVA

If there is any vineyard we work with that needs no introduction, this is the one. Shea Vineyard has graced the labels of so many wonderful wines dating back to the mid-90s that it has become a legendary local vineyard.

Planted by Dick Shea in the late-80s several miles east of Yamhill, it's fractured marine sandstones combine with warm days and cool nights to produce silky and long-lived Pinot Noirs that showcase exceptional complexity.

We've been blessed to work with Block 18 for over 20 years and in 2019 have added two prized new blocks that once produced Bergstrom's Shea Vineyard. 

Varieties: Pinot Noir
Soil: Willakenzie Marine Sedimentary
Elevation: 400-600 feet
Slope: South & Southeast Facing
Clones: 777 & Pommard (2019)
Planted: 1989 & replanted 1998

We are thankful for the great fruit and partnership with both Mike and Mary-Ann.

ZENITH VINEYARD

EOLA-AMITY HILLS AVA

Found in the Eola-Amity Hills AVA near Salem. Zenith was originally named Cooper Vineyard, and planted in the 80s. The Ramey family purchased the property in early-2000, re-naming it Zenith and beginning a replanting process to establish it's reputation as one of the top vineyards in the valley. 

We work with four blocks spread throughout the vineyard and love the savory expression from it's exceptionally deep marine sediments overlayed by a veneer of Missoula Flood silt.

Fruit from this special site receives ample sun during the day and cooling breezes that sneek through the Van Duzer Gap to help retain acidity.
