How we make our Pinot Noir

Pike Road Pinot Noir is hand-picked and hand-sorted then fermented in small open-top stainless steel tanks. The wine is barrel aged in 100% French oak barrels for 10 months. Pike Road sources the best grapes and then takes a gentle approach to preserve the inherent qualities of the fruit.

Pike Road Pinot Noir is made from 100% Willamette Valley fruit. Primarily sourced from six estate vineyard sites, Pike Road also includes smaller lots of Pinot Noir fruit grown by trusted partners here in the Willamette Valley. By integrating fruit from multiple locations, Pike Road gains in complexity.

The 2017 Vintage

2017 was another warm year for Oregon's Willamette Valley. The growing season started early with fine weather during bloom leading to larger than average fruit set. In spite of generous thinning, sunny summertime weather meant plentiful crops that were ready early. To avoid overripe fruit, harvest was compressed into a busy three-week period. Thankfully, cool nighttime temperatures ensured that we did not lose the classic freshness that is the hallmark of great Willamette Valley wine.
