Welcome to the Willamette Valley!

It’s bloom time for Pinot Noir in the Willamette Valley, Vintage 2024!

This is the moment we have all been waiting for, and it has arrived. Farming is kind of like that, monotonous boredom interrupted by brief moments of intensity.

We saw our first flowers in Block 30, Wadenswil clone Pinot Noir on June 11th, 2024. So we throw down a marker and start penciling in a potential Cluster Pluck window. Historically, once the bloom is on the vine, we need about 105 days to develop aroma and flavor in the wine berries. June 11th (Julien calendar day 163) plus 105 days is September 24th, 2024.

"Dena Drews and Ernie Pink have been quietly producing some of Oregon's most elegant and perfumed Pinots since the 2004 vintage. Their 30-acre vineyard outside the town of Dallas, abutting the famed Freedom Hill vineyard where Drews and Pink live, is painstakingly farmed and yields are kept low so production of these wines is limited. Winemaking includes abundant use of whole clusters, which is no doubt responsible for the wines' exotic bouquets and sneaky structure…"
