Introducing 2014 Massale!

From John, November 28th, 2017

Introducing our newest creation, 2014 Massale of Pinot noir.

Also newly released are our 2013 Nebbiolo and 2015 single vineyard wines:  Clos Electrique Rouge and Blanc from our estate vineyard just outside the winery door and Abbey Ridge Pinot noir and Chardonnay, from our friends at one of the oldest and best vineyards in the state of Oregon.  2015 was a warm year, but our vines said “you call this hot?”.  Their deep roots gave them everything they needed in the cool earth well below the surface to make elegant wines without, well, breaking a sweat.  We think you’ll love them!

Introducing Cidre 2020

We thought 2020 would be an excellent year to embark on a new fermentation endeavor: making traditional cider from Alan Foster’s legendary White Oak cider orchard. The result is a dry cider with a round fruity body that dances on your tongue with apple tannins and a liesy finish and a nose filled with aromas of apple blossom and roses!

White Oak Orchard and Vineyard

Alan Foster, owner of White Oak Orchard in the Ribbon Ridge AVA, planted one of the finest cider apple and pear orchards in Western America in 1989. More recently he added 2 acres of Pinot noir and about 1 acre of the noble Nebbiolo grape variety which we use in our Ribbon Ridge Pinot noir and Nebbiolo blend.  Read on to hear about our newest project using Alan’s fruit.
