“Vintage should always be an inspiration for the winemaker, and so should the specificities of each climat.”
A TRIBUTE TO THE GREAT WINES OF BURGUNDY
Our vineyard philosophy focuses on the cultivation of exceptional relationships with the land, our grapes and the people who tend them. We thoughtfully select the vineyards we work with. Our passion for old vines, clonal diversity and expressive microclimates are well represented in each individual site. The quality of grapes and location are just as important to us as the relationships we have formed throughout our lives and careers.
Most of the sites we work with surround our home in the Eola-Amity sub-appellation of the Willamette Valley. Our farmers share our vision for producing high quality fruit while fostering connections to the land and local communities. We value the importance of working with good stewards of the land. The caretakers we partner with are committed to dry farming without the use of herbicides, pesticides or fungicides.
We are very grateful that our vineyard partners are also our friends. We work with grape growers who we enjoy sitting down and sharing a glass of wine with. Our goal is to let the site and vintage shine through our wines. We are able to achieve this by starting with amazing grapes and amazing people.
