Winemaker Notes

Ruby in color with flavors of red berry fruits and spicy oak that meld on the palate. This is a blend of Feltz and Madrona Vineyards, both located on the eastern slope of the Eola Hills, where they have the advantage of recieving the early morning sunshine. This warms the vineyard early in the morning and contributes to a longer, more gradual ripening period.

Try this Pinot Noir with Grilled Tuna and Eggplant Marmalade. Accent food pairings with ginger, thyme and fresh rosemary. One of our favorites is a Peppered Catfish and Couscous. This wine has good balance and can go with a wide variety of grilled or smoked foods such as duck or a roasted vegetable salad.

Eola Hills, Willamette Valley, Oregon
Tom Huggins, founder and general manager of Eola Hills, had a dream rooted in facts. He knew that great wines could only come from great vineyards, and through his former occupation as a agricultural insurance expert, he knew where that precious vineyard land was located. This knowledge enabled him to purchase some of the prime sites for his own vineyards in the rolling terrain of the Northwest Willamette Valley of Oregon, and to fulfill a dream of creating his own wine.

Situated in a natural weather shadow of the Coast Range, which shunts storms from the Pacific Ocean north to Portland and south below Salem, the Eola Hills vineyards are protected from weather extremes. Yet in summer, a gorge carved by ancient glaciers draws in maritime air to provide ideal cooling for sensitive varietals in those warmer months.

Willamette Valley

Pinot Noir

Home of some of the planet’s most amazingly elegant and expressive Pinot noir, the Willamette Valley is a pastoral, mixed landscape of green, bucolic rolling hills, dramatic forestlands and small, independent, friendly wine growers. As a leader in environmental stewardship, the valley has some of the nation’s most protective land use policies, with two-thirds of its vineyards farmed sustainably and over half organic. While the valley technically claims a cool, continental climate, and is heavily influenced by the cold, moist winds of the Pacific Ocean, its warm and dry summers allow for the steady, even ripening of Pinot noir.

The potential of Willamette Valley Pinot noir continues to attract the investment of serious growers and winemakers both locally and from abroad, as naturally the finished wines bring accolades from professionals and enthusiasts. With a range of styles from delicate dried cherry, raspberry and hibiscus to stronger notes of truffle, mocha, plum and spice, a fine Willamette Valley Pinot noir is a perfect expression of both power and grace.
