2019 Elton Pinot Noir

Sourced from old vine plantings at our Elton Vineyard, founded in 1983 by Dick and Betty O’Brien, on the east-southeast slopes of the Eola-Amity Hills.

On the Nose: Deep ruby red color, aromatics of blue and red fruits such as strawberries, blueberries, and Santa Rosa plums.

On the Palate: Red earth/clay minerality that gives the wine a tremendous spice and focus as the flavors drive along. Warmth is provided in each sip you take that reminds you of the first Fall days of the year. 

Food Pairings: Honey baked ham with grilled plums and figs, Pad Thai with bacon and assortment of seasonal vegetables.

Peak Drinkability: 2021-2029

Elton Vineyard
Eola-Amity Hills AVA

Dick and Betty O’Brien married in 1967 and began building a life together on Betty’s family’s farm. Dick served as a middle school teacher and Betty became the Executive Director of the Santiam Girl Scouts. After a trip to Germany in 1980 where they stayed with a family that grew wine grapes, they returned to Oregon inspired and eager to plant a vineyard of their own. Betty’s parents, Elton and Peggy Ingram, turned over five acres of the farm for them to plant grapevines. They planted Pinot Noir and Chardonnay in 1983, the same year that Jim Bernau, Betty's friend and college classmate, planted our Estate Vineyard in the Salem Hills. Their vineyard grew over the years from five acres to more than 60 acres in the east-southeast slopes of the Eola Hills and was named one of Oregon’s top ten vineyards by Wine Press Northwest. The elevation rises from 250-500 feet, and the vineyard soil is primarily Jory and Nekia. Upon the O'Briens' retirement in 2007, the vineyard was contracted under a long-term lease to Willamette Valley Vineyards. Retirement allowed Dick and Betty O'Brien to complete a beautiful 1.5-acre garden on the property.
