Winemaker's Notes:

The Bethel Heights Eola Hills Cuvee 1997 Pinot Noir was made primarily from the grapes of our two closest neighbors, Temperance Hill to the north and Lewman to the south. We want the Eola Hills Cuve to be forwardly fruity, soft on the palate, and versatile at the table with a broad range of foods. All lots are aged in center-of-France or Oregon oak barrels for around nine months, adding undertones of smoke and spice. The Eola Hills Cuve is a great introductory Pinot, deliciously true to the variety.

About Bethel Heights Vineyard:

Planted between 1977 and 1979, Bethel Heights was one of the first vineyards in the Eola Hills, a chain of hills in the center of Oregon's Willamette Valley. The estate winery was established in 1984 and currently produces 10,000 cases of wine annually, most of which still comes from the 50 acre estate vineyard. Bethel Heights specializes in Pinot Noir, but also produces Chardonnay, Pinot Gris and Pinot Blanc.
