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 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.
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.
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.
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 2016 Almost Dry Riesling is a beautiful example of the well-defined characters found in this variety, and a harmonious balance between acid and sugar, with classic flavors found in this grape holding true in this wine.
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.
This reserve Riesling is produced from 34-year-old, own-rooted vines on south facing slopes at the edge of Graham Lake. This wine is expressive, flavorful and unique with an array of citrus, floral and tropical flavors.
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.
To highlight the lovely qualities of this variety, we selected the best fruit from our estate vineyard for this reserve Müller-Thurgau. Wild yeasts and small lot fermentations provided complexity and depth of flavors.
Vivacé is a sparkling wine with a fragrant nose of orange blossom, lemon, lime, honey and a hint of ginger while the exuberant palate features juicy green apple, ripe melon, lime zest and citrus confectionary.
