About Meyer Vineyard

We have been participating in a grape swap with Lemelson Vineyards for many years now using fruit from a 2001 planting of Pinot Noir planted between 550 and 800 feet. This beautiful vineyard is tucked up high into the famed Dundee Hills AVA and offers a classic example of Pinot Noir growing on volcanic Jory and Nekia soils. The site is farmed using organic methods to encourage healthy, living soils while also taking extra care to minimize water usage and respect wildlife habitat.

The 2017 Vintage

2017 brought us back to what we consider a classic, cool-climate Oregon vintage, a year when our decades of experience paid off. Wet spring weather led to a more typical growing season compared with the past three vintages, all unusually hot. The summer of 2017 was warm and dry, leading to excellent flavor development in the fruit, but we thinned the crop considerably to ensure concentration and ripeness. Harvest was staggered because of the October rains, which meant long days for our crew during the windows of sun. 2017 wasn’t an easy year to farm, but the fresh, fully developed flavors of the vintage make it worth the hard work.
