Established in 1982, Montinore Estate is one of the largest producers of certified estate wines made
from Biodynamic® grapes in the country. With our 200-acre Demeter Certified Biodynamic and Stellar
Certified Organic vineyard located in north Willamette Valley in Oregon, we focus on producing superior
Pinot Noirs, cool climate whites, and fascinating Italian varietals.
Partner and Chief Viticulturist, Rudy Marchesi, works side-by-side with Head Winemaker Stephen
Webber to ensure our farming and winemaking practices allow us to sustainably craft wines that reflect
our place while showcasing the best characteristics of each variety. We strive to create wines that honor
the land and traditions–from root to bottle, from our land to your table.
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, organically. While the valley 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 character and grace.
