“Source is everything”
With a clarity and breadth that is unequaled by other varieties, we believe Pinot noir best expresses the character of these sites. Rather than stamping wine with a varietal trademark, Pinot noir is the ultimate vehicle for conveying the aroma, flavor and texture of the location in which it is grown. We also have a place in our hearts for the limited production of two white wines, Chardonnay from Celilo Vineyard near White Salmon, Washington, and Pinot Blanc from Freedom Hill Vineyard and Meredith Mitchell Vineyard. Our approach to farming is nutritionally based. This doesn’t apply only to the vine. Of equal importance is “feeding” the microbial life that exists throughout the soil profile. Vibrant populations of microorganisms provide the vine with needed minerals for healthy performance and they give volume to the expression of aroma and flavor by the fruit and ultimately the wine produced from that fruit. Each year we analyze the nutritional status of our soils and plants, take core soil samples to determine microbial populations and then tailor our farming approach to shore up known deficiencies. No two vineyards are the same so each will have a unique plan. This approach, along with soil aeration, disease prevention, pruning practices, shoot positioning, early season leaf removal in the fruit zone, determination of crop level and subsequent early thinning (immediately after bloom is completed) to 2 tons or less per acre, are all important examples of the positive role human beings can play.
