Cool-Climate Biodynamic and Organic White Wines
Oregon's Willamette Valley is an ideal site for growing cool-climate, aromatic white varieties, much like Northern Alsace in France. We have a passion for white varietals, such as Pinot Gris, Chardonnay, Gewürztraminer, Müller-Thurgau and Riesling. Ranging from dry to sweet as well as in between, these wines have broad appeal.
Seven distinctive blocks of Pinot Gris can be found on our home vineyard. Each is harvested and fermented separately, then artfully blended to create the best expression of the wine. This Gris is bountiful, fresh and crisp.
Mouthwatering and multi-dimensional, this perennial crowd pleaser is a blend of our favorite cool-climate whites. Eminently versatile, this aromatic blend displays bold fruit and vivid flavors, balanced by a clean, bright finish.
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.
Müller-Thurgau is not often found in Oregon, more prevalent in the Alsace region. Head Winemaker, Stephen, fell in love with the grape when he worked in the region and loves crafting his own unique varietal expression.
This wine is a uniquely crafted blend of estate Sauvignon Blanc (20%) and Pinot Gris (80%). Aptly named for these varieties, this limited production white wine is food-friendly and easy-drinking.
Each block of our estate-grown Pinot Gris is harvested and fermented separately, enabling us to select our standout lot for this special bottling. This is a dry wine with tropical, fruit-forward notes.
Montinore Estate’s orange wine, so named for its lovely coral hue, is the result of leaving Pinot Gris on its skins for 24-36 hours, then pressing and later blending in clay amphora-fermented Muscat.
Oregon Chardonnay offers a unique expression of this popular grape - forget big, oaky, buttery Chardonnay. These wines tend to be lighter and more fruit-forward. This is a food-friendly wine but also lovely on its own.
The Reserve Gewürztraminer is the darling of our reserve program, making fans wait months between releases. The wine is crafted from our best fruit and select lots. This vintage was fermented in both stainless steel and oak.
