Our philosophy begins with pre & post-sorting, whole cluster and native fermentations, and 100% French oak aging. Our wines 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 - each layered, with one desire — to reflect the soul, vintage & unique place.
