Established in 1982, Montinore Estate is the second largest estate producer of wines made from Biodynamic® grapes in the country. With our 200-acre Demeter Certified Biodynamic® and Stellar Certified Organic vineyard located in north Willamette Valley in Oregon, we focus on producing superior Pinot Noirs, cool climate whites, and fascinating Italian varietals.
Getting the best Pinot Gris grapes each year, the 2015 Roulette is fruit forward with aromas of melon, bergamot and fig. The mouth is full of ripe pear, white grapefruit, dried figs, pineapple and a whisper of lemon thyme.
Orange wine is crafted when white wine grapes are made in the style of red wine. This is Pinot Gris with some skin contact during fermentation, hence the coral color. Clay amphora-fermented Gewürztraminer adds complexity.
The Parsons' Ridge site is on a saddle of the vineyard where the Pinot Noir vines face two different directions, resulting in numerous expressions of the grapes. We ferment lots separately then finesse and blend for the final wine.
Planted in 1982, Montinore Estate is a 200-acre Demeter Certified Biodynamic® and Stellar Certified Organic estate that lies at the northern end of the Willamette Valley appellation and along the east-facing slope of the Coastal Range foothills in Oregon.
Planted in 1999, Merriman Vineyard is a 30-acre sustainably, dry-farmed vineyard that sits on an east-facing ridge at an elevation of 500-feet. It is LIVE certified and is in the process of being converted to Demeter Certified Biodynamic®.
Named for the dominant loess soil that characterizes our home vineyards, the Laurelwood Society has four separate clubs designed for wine enthusiasts and beginners alike to experience the true essence of Montinore Estate’s wines.
Mark your calendars! We're thrilled to host several events at our winery throughout the year, along with winemaker dinners, tastings and sponsorships around the country. Many are exclusive to the wine club, a perk not to be missed.
Our tasting room is open seven days a week, from 11:00 am to 5 pm, and closed most major holidays. Nestled near the foothills of the Coast Range, we’re a short drive from Portland or the Oregon Coast. The view, wines and people are all easy to enjoy.
