“100% Pommard. Aged 10 months in 26% new French oak. Planted in a former plum orchard, this deep ruby-hued wine hints at its heritage with notes of Italian plum and dark fruit, plus plenty of refreshing acidity.
It’s a tight-knit community, one that is comfortable sharing, collaborating, and learning together. Many are neighbors. This easy congeniality informed the tastings, which better resembled jazz musicians riffing than winemakers talking.” – L.M Archer
Sustainability is a core value of the Yamhill-Carlton AVA, where many of the vineyards hold LIVE, Salmon-Safe, or Demeter Biodynamic® certifications. Humility and cooperation among winemakers drives the down-to-earth nature of the region, which was very apparent during May’s Oregon Wine Month.
