The Grape Republic

Pinot Noir

A new tier of wines from Lachini Vineyards. Comprised of declassified Estate Pinot noir along with sourced grapes and bulk Pinot noir.

2015 'S' Estate

Pinot Noir

A fourteen barrel blend crafted with a newer oak composition and selected for more opulence on the nose and a fruit forward palate. Approximately 20%  whole cluster fermented & 80% native yeast fermentation.  Crafted for early consumption, yet with stuffing, layers and a deliciously seductive finish.

2014 Cuvée Giselle

 Pinot Noir

Showcases the finest our Estate vineyard can create in each vintage as a result of a rigorous selection in the cellar. While the clones (Pommard, Dijon, Waidenswil) and barrel composition (new, once fill) may change; a few things are constant - texture, balance, length, age worthy.  Cuvee Giselle is aged ~ 14 months with roughly 50% new French Oak. 92Wine Spectator

2014 Cuore d’Oro

Muscat Canelli

A dessert-style ice-wine from an eight row block within our Estate Vineyard. Wonderfully aromatic & velvety rich this wine will reveal more oxidative nut flavors in time. Unctuous, yet not overly syrupy.

We craft wines that have a long development profile, and to accomplish this, we need fruit that is very balanced. Our goal is to create wines that reveal an enduring value that over time will become interesting and develop more complexity. Our philosophy begins with pre & post-sorting, whole cluster and native fermentations, and 100% French oak aging. This leads to wines that are created in harmony through minimal intervention, revealing a cleanliness and purity of intention. We strive to show the quality of the Willamette Valley and such typicity year over year. These are classical wines of complexity, grace and profoundness - each layered, textural, seamless and nuanced with one desire –

to reflect the soul, vintage & unique place.
