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.
