Our commitment to Biodynamic farming and winemaking practices has been a priority since the early 2000s, with the estate receiving the esteemed Biodynamic certification granted by Demeter in 2008. Since then, we've grown to become the country's largest producer of certified estate wines made from Biodynamic grapes. Below is a diverse selection of wines, including our acclaimed Pinot Noirs, Italian varietals unique to the region, a selection of cool climate white varietals, and even one of the only Biodynamic sparkling wines produced in the US.
The Reserve is an expression of the highest-quality Pinot Noir from each vintage. Grapes from our best estate growing sites are fermented and aged separately and assembled after maturation.
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.
Scents of ripe cherry, mushroom and cedar, with hints of tobacco and cocoa nibs coming through slightly. Savory herbs, notably sage, intermingle with a slightly darker version of Parsons’ customary Bing cherry.
With 30-year old, self-rooted vines, the trellising for the Pinot Noir vines in the Graham's Block, on the estate vineyard produces clusters with small berries, allowing for more concentrated flavors with deeper red fruit notes.
Block 1 has some of the most mineral-rich soils on the estate vineyard due to the cataclysmic Missoula Floods that occurred 12,000 years ago. This wine is a selection from some of the most expressive barrels from this block.
Fruit hailing from Block 1 is named for the cataclysmic Missoula Floods. Marionberry, Bing cherry and black currant aromas mingle with fresh earth, wet stone, sage and baking spice.
The Keeler family farms a 25-acre, certified Biodynamic vineyard, offering truly special fruit that is a lovely reflection of the Eola-Amity Hills terroir. Old world charm meets new world style in this Pinot Noir.
Lagrein hails from the most northern part of Italy and is a relative of Pinot Noir. Grown at the warmest spot on our vineyard, the Lagrein exhibits a characteristic inky, purple color.
This dry style Pinot Gris begins with aromatics of bright citrus and tropical fruit that lead to a firm foundation of apple, mango and a hint of savory and spice on the palate, finishing crisp and bright.
The foundation of the Pinot Rosé is based on early picking to ensure bright acid and fruit. The use of Saignée with later ripening Pinot Noir is also added to offer more mature red fruit flavors and body.
Orange wines are as intriguing as they are delicious. Made with skin contact Pinot Gris, our coral-hued beauty benefits from the addition of clay amphora-fermented Muscat, also fermented on skins.
Aromas of rose petal, ripe lychee and pink grapefruit lead to a rich, silky texture of honeydew and peach. A distinctive floral, zesty and dry finish lingers on the palate. A long skin soak lends to this wine’s complexity.
