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.
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.
Winemaker Stephen Webber transports us to Alsace with this classic expression of Pinot Gris made from seven blocks on the estate. This refreshing wine is fruit forward with satisfying richness, yet clean and dry on the finish.
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.
The 2018 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.
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.
While associated with summer, this dry rosé is crafted from Pinot Noir. It is deliciously food-friendly, clean with an uplifting finish making it a perfect choice year-round. We love it with cheese and charcuterie.
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.
A tradition started in 2014, the best of the best Pinot Gris grapes are selected each harvest and crafted into the Roulette. The 2016 Roulette is exceptional having been made from Block 5. This is a great Pinot Gris!
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.
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.
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.
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.
