CHOIX DU COEUR
After the harvest is over, and our pinot noir is resting gently in barrel for over a year, our winemaking team will regularly taste and evaluate how that vintage is coming along from both Résonance and Découverte vineyards. The Choix du Cœur wines are the result – meaning “Heart’s Choice,” these extraordinary bottles come from a scant 5 barrels from each vineyard that stood out from the rest until our winemakers had to just follow their hearts, and create this limited cuvée.
SINGLE VINEYARD WINES
The origin of our single vineyard wines are unique and compelling sites that stirred the emotions and the core of our team when they set foot upon the land for the very first time…a spiritual experience indeed. Our estate vineyards communicate a distinct character rooted in some of the oldest earth in Oregon’s Willamette Valley.
Les Coteaux, meaning ‘the hillsides’ is a cuvée that is comprised from our own estate vineyards. These wines show the elegance and complexity coming from the soils and mild climates found at these neighboring vineyard sites.
Our Willamette Valley Pinot Noir represents a blend of the finest vineyards in the Willamette Valley and includes grapes from our own estate vineyards. We work with like-minded wine growers throughout the area who share our commitment to cultivating terroir-driven Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.
