    Winemaker Notes

    In 1970 David Lett produced America's first Pinot Gris, and Eyrie remains the acknowledged benchmark for this increasingly popular varietal in America. Eyrie Pinot Gris 1997 offers a medium body with crisp aromas and flavors reminiscent of apples. Its velvet texture and subtle hints of vanilla are enhanced by eight months on the lees.

    Eyrie, Willamette Valley, Oregon
    1998 Pinot Gris
    David Lett, aka “Papa Pinot”, was the first visionary to realize that Oregon’s Willamette Valley was the best place in the world to grow the finest Pinot Noir outside of Burgundy. In the early 1960s Lett explored high-quality Pinot growing possibilities around the world and discovered the “secret” from the French that the finest wines come from grapes which grow at the climatic edge of where they will ripen in coincidence with the end of the growing season. David and Diana Lett planted the Willamette Valley’s first cool climate vinifera wine grapes in 1966 and produced their first vintage in 1970. David Lett passed away in 2008.

    Today, his son Jason manages the The Eyrie Vineyards. The philosophy and style have not changed. The vineyards are farmed organic, vines are old, yields kept low, yeasts are native, alcohols low, acids balanced, winemaking non-interventist, new oak very minimal to non-existant. The achievement is ageworthy, characterful wines of finesse, elegance and food friendliness. The Eyrie Vineyards was named for the home (eye-ree) of red-tailed hawks that share the Lett's vineyard land in the Dundee Hills.
