“wines showcasing the Atavus Vineyard”
The analemma is a figure 8 shape of the Sun’s annual migratory path between the northern and southern hemispheres as seen from the Earth. This pattern is caused by the tilt of the Earth’s axis and is a visual cue of the Sun’s movement through the calendar year. The ribbon-like figure of the analemma is similar to the symbol of infinity. We draw inspiration from this image of “boundlessness” or “beyond calculation.” So much of what we enjoy as humans cannot be summarized by science or measured by calculation. Joy, love, pleasure, and a smile are all examples of immeasurable essences that are meaningful aspects of everyday life. Our experience reveals that the pleasure derived from wine falls into this unquantifiable category.
Founded by Steven Thompson and Kris Fade in 2010, Analemma Wines was built upon the opportunity to lease one of the oldest vineyards in the Pacific Northwest: The Atavus Vineyard. With just twelve acres of history and a vision, the two set out to breathe life back into the old vines, ferment rare fruit and bottle a truly unique vinous expression of the Columbia Gorge. Less than ten minutes from downtown Hood River, the location presents striking views, historic cherry orchards, and newly planted vineyards in a small fruit growing valley.
