WINE DETAILS
Enjoy three classic Willamette Valley wines that express the terroir of their three estate vineyards

2018 Estate Pinot Noir
90 points - Wine Spectator
91 points - Vinous

The 2018 Estate Pinot Noir expresses the terroir of our three vineyards — the original planting by Founder Jim Bernau at the winery in the Salem Hills, Tualatin Estate planted by Oregon wine pioneer Bill Fuller in the foothills of the Coastal Range and Elton planted by Dick and Betty O'Brien on the east face of the Eola-Amity Hills.

Complex aromas of red and bramble fruits including cherry, raspberry and blackberry, accented by notes of florals and anise spice to create an alluring nose.
Pairs with traditional Pinot Noir dishes like cinnamon-rubbed Oregon lamb lollipops, duck breast with fruit compote, cedar plank grilled salmon and aged cheeses.


2018 Estate Chardonnay
90 points - Wine Enthusiast 

This classic "Willamette Valley style" Chardonnay is sourced from our three Estate vineyards — the original planting by Founder Jim Bernau in the Salem Hills, Tualatin Estate planted by Oregon wine pioneer Bill Fuller in the foothills of the Coastal Range and Elton planted by Dick and Betty O'Brien in the Eola-Amity Hills. 

Classic "Willamette Valley style" Chardonnay. Gold in color, Meyer lemon, orange blossom and vanilla custard fill the glass and are accented with notes of minerality.
Pairs with steamed mussels, shrimp and grits, grilled halibut with peach salsa, caesar salad, Oregon salmon cakes and soft cheeses. 


2019 Estate Rosé of Pinot Noir
90 points - Wine Enthusiast 

Electric pink in color with aromas of juicy strawberry, watermelon and peach and accented by floral honeysuckle. Dry with a medium-body, round mouthfeel and vibrant palate of nectarine, red cherry, tangerine, tropical papaya and vanilla creme. The bright acidity creates a lively and clean finish.
Pair with salmon sliders, ahi tuna, bruschetta and fresh summer salad.
