Our Tualatin Estate Vineyard rests in the foothills of the Oregon Coast range and is one of the oldest plantings in Oregon, planted in 1973 by Oregon wine pioneer Bill Fuller. The unique Laurelwood soil profile at the Tualatin Estate Vineyard contributes to the complex nature of the wines.

This inaugural vintage is crafted using méthode champenoise sourced from estate-grown Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. This blend combines the structure and vibrancy of Pinot Noir with the finesse and roundness of Chardonnay. The wine was aged on its lees for 23 months to develop added complexity before being disgorged.
