Hood River, OR
Our winemaking is focused on the fruit. We are blessed with beautiful berries and our job is to nurture them with love and care until they are in the bottle for you to enjoy. Our “Big” red varietals (Barbera, Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Merlot, Nebbiolo, Sangiovese, Tempranillo and Zinfandel) are grown in the hot and dry Applegate and Columbia Valley regions of Oregon and Washington respectively.
While our food friendly varietals (Albariňo, Chardonnay, Muscat, Pinot Blanc/Gris/Noir and Riesling) benefit from the cool pacific marine layers of the Willamette and Rogue Valley and Columbia Gorge to produce subtle and complex wines. New American Oak is used judiciously to develop bouquets that complement our “Bold” wines while mostly neutral French barrels provide complexity and layering for our fruit forward wines.
