Oregon Mountain Estate is 130 acres of pinot noir planted in the Walla Walla Loam of the Columbia Valley, making it the largest planting of pinot noir in the largest American Viticulture Area (AVA) of the Northwest. The selection of pinot noir clones was accomplished by Phil Freese, one of the world’s top viticulturists. Oregon Mountain Estate is planted uniquely in Eastern Oregon where there are 300 days of sunshine annually and the terroir is composed primarily of rich flood sediment material from the Missoula floods that created the Valley. With five years of harvests on a large scale, consistently selling grapes to the largest producers in the Northwest, Oregon Mountain Estate has proven that the warmer climate can create great tasting pinot noir in higher yields. Oregon Mountain Estate pinot noir is the first, self labeled wine by Oregon Mountain Estate.

SIBLING RIVALRY

When a seventh generation Oregon family is split down state university lines, only spirited friendly competition can keep the winery together.

“In the last year I’ve done some real soul searching. I asked myself what did I do wrong, and then I remembered how important it is to let your little brother win once in a while. The 2016 Natasha Pinot Noir is really one that showcases the fruit. We’re lucky to have such diversity in our vineyard, and for this blend I really wanted to demonstrate what south-facing slopes can do to enhance the Pinot Noir grape. I spent time sampling all 34 barrels from the 2016 vintage and hand-crafted this Pinot to be one that lets the fruit shine.”

 “It’s been a year since I released my first blend, and I’ve learned a lot. Like how my sister can’t let go of a loss, and that working in the vineyard gave me the insight I needed to develop a Pinot Noir that people love. Now I’m back and excited to share with you the 2016 Griffin Pinot Noir.  It’s a blend that is composed of blocks 7-14 of the vineyard that really exhibit the terroir of the Walla Walla loam. My passion is the land and I wanted to share that with you.”
