Coelho Vineyard, about 35 acres of Missoula Flood sedimentary soil in the gently rolling hills south of Amity in the Van Duzer Corridor AVA, produces high acid wines with generous fruit. Planted to 13 rows of Dijon 76 Chardonnay, 5 rows of Pinot Gris, and the balance to 50/50 Pommard and Dijon 777 clones of Pinot Noir. Pinot Noir from this vineyard displays notes of red fruit and earth. Chardonnay reveals a lemon core while Pinot Gris always has a wonderful balance of lemon-lime acid and expressive fruit.
Delfina Vineyard, 15 acres of primarily volcanic soil in the gently rolling hills west of McMinnville in the McMinnville AVA, produces floral wines of precision with generous raspberry fruit highlighted by minerality and crisp acidity. Planted to Pinot Noir clones 777 (30%), 667 (35%), and 115 (15%).
Zeitoun Vineyard, our smallest vineyard at about 7 acres of eroded volcanic rock over marine sedimentary soil, is located at a saddle in the hill just east of the winery in the Eola-Amity Hills AVA. This rocky vineyard with its deep pockets of clay produces structured wines that are naturally dark in color and redolent of dark bramble and plum fruits. We do not know what clones are planted in this mysterious vineyard.
