Oregon + Washington + California
We have chosen to source grapes from the finest vineyards up and down the west coast. Three states. All states that we have lived in. And all states that we love. Our grapes come from Washington, California and Oregon – and we absolutely love each vineyard that we work with.
Alder Ridge Vineyard - Horse Heaven Hills AVA, Washington
This is where we get most of our red grapes from. These 15-year-old vines are just bursting with life! Located on the Columbia River, on the Southern border of Washington state, Alder Ridge has been regarded as one of the finest vineyard sites in the entire state.
Natural wind and air drainage protects the vines from the harsh weather conditions, both in the summer and winter. Reminiscent of the Rhone slopes, the vineyard grows some of our favorite varietals.
We pick Zinfandel, Petite Sirah, Counoise, Malbec, Cabernet Franc and Grenache from this vineyard. Rich earth producing world-class fruit.
BellaGrace Vineyard - Shenandoah Valley AVA, Amador County, California
Mourvèdre is our flagship grape. And we get old-vine stuff. The vines are still quite full of life, but they're pumping with wisdom of years passed.
This grape (which is commonly blended with Syrah and Grenache) makes a meaty, gamey wine. Dark fruit and musky spiciness make for an exquisite gastronomic experience when paired with worldly meats and cheeses.
For us though, we like to keep our Mourvèdre generally unblended.
And this vineyard is a perfect site for a varietal like Mourvèdre. At 1200 ft, good slopes and warm summers seem to bring about an almost Bandol-like wine...which is what we were going for!
Wheatland Vineyard - Willamette Valley AVA, Oregon
Our old backyard, we get Pinot Gris, Riesling and sometimes Pinot Noir from the vineyard attached to Arcane Cellars. Situated along the banks of the Willamette River, this macro-climate delivers the perfect amount of sun and warmth to get these varieties to ripen.
No more, no less. Which makes for remarkable wines.
Bieze Vineyard - Eola Hills, Willamette Valley AVA, Oregon
We make a very special wine from fruit from this vineyard. It's called The Prince and it's a co-fermentation of 75% Pinot Noir and 25% Chardonnay. Unlike anything you've ever tried!
Crowley Station Vineyard - Eola Hills, Willamette Valley AVA, Oregon
While we don't currently source from this vineyard, the fruit is exceptional and you can find their own brand of wine at FOSSIL & FAWN.
