Winemaker's Notes

Umpqua Cuvee is a new label designation for our Pinot Noir family. This wine is fermented at a cooler than normal temperature to preserve the fruity character of the grapes. It then spends just a few months (usually about 5) in neutral oak barrels and is released a few months after bottling. This has resulted in a wine that is more forward in fruit and is more moderately priced. This wine is a good match with soft foods, cheeses, pesto sauces, pizza and pasta. Because the wine has no oak character, it can be served with a slight chill or up to room temperature.

Learn About Henry Estate

Henry Estate is family owned and operated.

This is possible because of its manageable size, 40 acres of vineyards producing 12,000 cases (30,000 gallons) of wine each year.
