We are proud to call the northern Willamette Valley our home. Within the Willamette Valley AVA boundaries we have two Estate vineyards, our home vineyard at Montinore Estate and the fantastic Merriman Vineyard located in the Yamhill-Carlton sub-appellation. Each of these estate growing sites provides an array of characteristics that allow us to work with a diversity of growing conditions, soil types and varieties.
We are committed to producing finely crafted wines that express the unique character of the northern Willamette Valley and our growing sites. We use sustainable methods in everything we do and abide by the strict practices of certified Biodynamic® and Organic farming.
In addition to our Estate vineyards, we are pleased to occasionally work with fruit from some of the most notable vineyard sites throughout Oregon and even in Washington. We take pride in our sustainable estate vineyards, but there are times when stunning fruit from our respected colleagues can’t be ignored.
“We farm our vineyards using Biodynamic® and organic practices and create wines that honor the land and traditions - from root to bottle, from our land to you.” ~The Marchesi Family
