Years ago, Founder Jim Bernau began experimenting with Pinot Noir by gently dropping hand-picked whole clusters in a chilled stainless fermenter, pushing all the oxygen out with CO2 and sealing the vessel tight. What happened next was magical — the berries started to swell and turn pink. When they burst, they released the most aromatic, fermenting Pinot Noir.
Sourced from a small planting at our Tualatin Estate Vineyard, the grape clusters are whole cluster pressed and aged in stainless steel and neutral oak barrels.
Straw in color, the wine opens with notes of pear and golden apple with hints of zesty citrus like lemon, lime and grapefruit on the nose. Light to medium in body, flavors mirror aromas with the addition of chamomile, white florals, fresh herbs and honey unfolding on the palate with bright, refreshing acidity to create an energetic finish.

Our Riesling is classic and versatile. Serve well-chilled and allow to warm in your glass for optimal enjoyment of aromas and flavors.
This semi-sweet wine opens with a bouquet of white peach, orange, pineapple and honeysuckle. The mouthfeel is luscious with refreshing acidity that activates the palate and displays flavors of juicy apple, honeydew melon, apricot, lychee and nectar. The finish is wonderfully persistent with a perfect balance of sweetness and crispness.
