Johan Vineyards
Rickreall, OR

The largest source of fruit for us, our relationship with Dag Sundby and Dan Rinke goes back to 2011 when they first grafted Gamay, Melon and Cabernet Franc for us.  Additionally, we source Pinot Noir from here which completes the Rhinestones blend along with their Gamay.  Certified Biodynamic and ideally situated to deliver the expression of Willamette Valley wine we strive for, Johan fruit is the core of the cellar.

HUGHES HOLLOW Vineyard
south salem, OR

Located in the South Salem hills, an area we feel holds some of the best untapped potential in the valley, Ed and Kathy Hughes vineyard provides us with Gamay and Pinot Noir.  The vines are own rooted and have been dry farmed from the beginning.  The aspect is slightly North facing which translates in a light, savory expression we highly value in our Pinot Noir. This is the source for our top cuvee.

  • Vine Age - 27 years
  • Elevation:  675 ft
  • Location:  South Salem - Willamette Valley AVA
