OUR WINEMAKING

“We pick the grapes by hand and vinify each vineyard in separate tanks, block by block, to boost, check, and verify the complexity of the Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. In this way, we use the winery to reveal the terroir of each vineyard.”

– Guillaume Large, Winemaker at Résonance


THE TRUTH OF PLACE

The winemaking is simple at Résonance. We pick the grapes when they are ripe, but not too ripe, and, when they come to the winery, we give them as much freedom as possible to express themselves. Every vintage is different, based on what the grapes need—macerations will vary in length and temperature, we do not inoculate with yeast, and we let the wines rest quietly in barrels, perhaps racking only once.

Our winemaking is about having a good knowledge of the best of a vineyard block’s terroir with minimal intervention. This attention to detail requires an openness as well as experience. Only through curiosity can we transmit what the soil has given us.


OUR WINERY

Located 5 minutes west of the farming community of Carlton, Oregon, The Winery rests intimately among the vines of the Résonance Vineyard and the gently rolling foothills of the Coast Range.

Inspired by the beauty of simplicity, the facility harnesses gravity-flow winemaking, allowing the juice to run naturally from the grapes, from crush pad to fermentation vessel to barrel. During elevage, we use small fermentation tanks to verify the best of the terroir of our vineyards, block by block.

Each lot is aged in custom, handcrafted French oak barrels, chosen for the right tightness of grain as well as the soil in which the oak grew. We allow our wines to rest quietly—racking maybe only once—until they reach their purest expression, and are then released.
