WILLAMETTE VALLEY AVADRY FARMEDCERTIFIED THROUGH FOOD ALLIANCE WITHOUT HERBICIDES
Owners Dan and Helen Dusschee planted the iconic Freedom Hill Vineyard in 1981. Their son, Dustin, has recently taken over the farming responsibility in yet another generation of sustainable stewardship and maintaining family legacy. Located in the foothills of the Oregon Coast Range, Freedom Hill Vineyard is planted on Bellpine loam soil. The soil, coupled with meticulous farming, creates consistent, structured and powerful Pinot Noir and taught, precise Chardonnay.
Ken worked with the Dusschee family throughout his time at St. Innocent and has always considered Freedom Hill and its stewards to be some of the best in our business. In 2012, we were thrilled to gain access to a single block of Pinot noir and Chardonnay from this vineyard. Today, we have been granted the opportunity to work with two blocks of Pinot Noir and three blocks of Chardonnay with varied vine ages and clones.
