Winemaker Notes

Our Rascal Pinot Gris exhibits clean fruit flavors. A combination of stone fruit and citrus follow through to the palate and show flavors of peach and grapefruit. Bright acidity balances this off dry wine and makes it a wonderful accompaniment to food or enjoyable by itself.

James Suckling

Quite reductive at first. Give this some time for the cherry blossoms, yellow apples and daffodils to take hold. Medium-bodied with an oily texture, medium acidity and an appley finish.

Great Oregon Wine Company, Oregon
Great Oregon Wine Company Williamette Valley Vines Winery Image

The Great Oregon Wine Company was established out of a love for fine wine and an innate appreciation for the farm-to-table culture and flavors of Oregon. Every bottle of wine crafted honors what it means to be a true Pacific Northwesterner and delivers its own belief that wine should be enjoyed as it was meant to be – celebrating life with friends and family around a bountiful table.

Each of the wines are tested by the Clean Label Project to ensure the lowest levels of environmental and industrial contaminants and toxins such as heavy metals. This starts in the vineyards and the lifelong friends and farmers chosen to partner with and, also controlled in the cellar and on the bottling line with great care. As innovators in the Oregon wine industry, this is the only winery to be certified pesticide-free by the federal government and were among the first commercial vineyards in Oregon to remove glyphosate from their wines.

These world-class wines are made under the watchful eye of Master Sommelier Brett Zimmerman in small, 1.5-ton batches that allow them to put more care and attention into each bottle.

Every bottle sold allows The Great Oregon Wine Company to give back to the community through a broad range of charitable causes including The Humane Society of the United States, the Wetlands Conservancy and the Life Time Foundation.

Home to some of America’s most celebrated Pinot Noir, Oregon maintains a tight focus on small production, high quality wine even while the state’s industry enjoys steady growth. As a world-renowned wine region, Oregon has more than 700 wineries and is home to well over 70 grape varieties. With a mostly Mediterranean climate, its cooler and wetter regions lie in the west, close to the Pacific Coast.

By far the most reputed region is the Willamette Valley, which is further subdivided into six smaller appellations: Chehalem Mountains, Dundee Hills, Eola-Amity Hills, McMinnville, Ribbon Ridge and Yamhill-Carlton.

The Valley’s obvious success story is with Pinot Noir, which here takes on a personality that could be described in general terms as somewhere in between the wines of California and Burgundy—and is often more affordable than either one. The best Willamette Pinot noir has a rare combination of red and black fruit, elegant balance, high acidity and rustic earth. While completely enjoyable in their youth, some of the better, single vineyard or appellation-specific Pinot noirs can often benefit from some cellar time.

Other AVAs in Oregon’s west worth noting include Umpqua Valley and Rogue Valley.

In the east are Snake River Valley, which overlaps into Idaho, and Columbia Valley, which Oregon shares with Washington. Summers are hot and dry in these regions but winters are cold and rainy.

Pinot Gris, Chardonnay, Riesling and Pinot blanc also grow successfully in Oregon.

This “white” variety is actually born out of a mutation of Pinot Noir and shows a unique rosy, purplish hue upon full ripeness. The grape boasts two versions of its name and two generally distinct styles: the crisp, Italian Pinot Grigio and the softer French Pinot Gris. Somm Secret—Given the color of its berries and aromatic potential, Pinot Grigio is commonly used to make "orange wines." An orange wine is a white wine made with fermentation on its skins (similar to red wine making), leading to n orange hued wine with ephemeral aromas and extra complexity.
