    Winemaker Notes

    This estate grown Chardonnay is fermented entirely in stainless steel with minimal manipulation and no secondary malolactic fermentation. It is a nod to Alfredo's Italian roots and reflects the cooler climate of Oregon's Northern Willamette Valley. The wine offers a beautiful tropical nose and is fresh and effusive on the palate. The bright, crisp fruit shows hints of tangerine and a lingering, distinctively Chardonnay finish. Enjoy it with pastas, fresh seafood (perfect with oysters) and Asian cuisine.

    Apolloni Vineyards, founded in 1999 by Laurine and Alfredo Apolloni, is located in the northernmost region of the Willamette Valley, just 25 miles west of downtown Portland. This location provides a unique microclimate, tucked up against the Oregon Coast Range, with primarily Laurelwood soils. Alfredo’s family winemaking tradition goes back over 150 years from northern Italy. Our vineyard and winery are LIVE Certified with a focus on producing wines that reflect the distinctive characteristics of our site, while showcasing the unique qualities of each vintage.

    One of Pinot Noir’s most successful New World outposts, the Willamette Valley is the largest and most important AVA in Oregon. With a continental climate moderated by the influence of the Pacific Ocean, it is perfect for cool-climate viticulture and the production of elegant wines.

    Mountain ranges bordering three sides of the valley, particularly the Chehalem Mountains, provide the option for higher-elevation vineyard sites.

    The valley's three prominent soil types (volcanic, sedimentary and silty, loess) make it unique and create significant differences in wine styles among its vineyards and sub-AVAs. The iron-rich, basalt-based, Jory volcanic soils found commonly in the Dundee Hills are rich in clay and hold water well; the chalky, sedimentary soils of Ribbon Ridge, Yamhill-Carlton and McMinnville encourage complex root systems as vines struggle to search for water and minerals. In the most southern stretch of the Willamette, the Eola-Amity Hills sub-AVA soils are mixed, shallow and well-drained. The Hills' close proximity to the Van Duzer Corridor (which became its own appellation as of 2019) also creates grapes with great concentration and firm acidity, leading to wines that perfectly express both power and grace.

    Though Pinot noir enjoys the limelight here, Pinot gris, Pinot blanc and Chardonnay also thrive in the Willamette. Increasing curiosity has risen recently in the potential of others like Grüner Veltliner, Chenin blanc and Gamay.

    One of the most popular and versatile white wine grapes, Chardonnay offers a wide range of flavors and styles depending on where it is grown and how it is made. While it tends to flourish in most environments, Chardonnay from its Burgundian homeland produces some of the most remarkable and longest lived examples. California produces both oaky, buttery styles and leaner, European-inspired wines. Somm Secret—The Burgundian subregion of Chablis, while typically using older oak barrels, produces a bright style similar to the unoaked style. Anyone who doesn't like oaky Chardonnay would likely enjoy Chablis.
