If diversity is the spice of life, then Oregon is an intriguing spice rack. There's much more to Rainstorm's home than snowy peaks, rugged coastlines, and foggy forests. There’s no better example of Oregon's diversity than the Willamette and Umpqua Valleys. Both regions produce spectacular Pinots. But the profound difference in weather patterns produces grapes that contribute to wildly divergent wine styles.
Rainstorm's Willamette Valley vineyard sits atop a fog-swept ridge, located east of Silverton. Their Umpqua Valley vineyard is located west of the city of Umpqua on a beautifully forested ridge. We like Pinot Noir from ridges, because the slope provides great water drainage capacity; this controls the vines' vigor and produces low yields. Low yields are ideal, as the vine is encouraged to focus its character in a smaller volume of grapes.
