Critical AcclaimAll Vintages
With its diverse topography and rich terroir, Oregon provides the perfect palette from which to craft wines of elegance and balance. Primarius is a wine made for the people, by the hearts and hands of the people who know Oregon Pinot best.
With each blend, winemaker Sarah Cabot hand selects the very best fruit to masterfully craft wines complex in structure and truly distinguished in style. Ever-changing vineyard sourcing promotes constant evolution in the winemaking technique to allow for unparalleled consistency from vintage to vintage.
While the Willamette Valley and Pinot Noir are a like a fairy tale match made in heaven, most of Oregon is in fact, a glorious source of Pinot noir. Claiming over half of its total area under vine, Pinot noir also thrives in Southern Oregon’s Umpqua and Rogue Valleys where sedimentary and volcanic soils dominate hillside vineyards and cool temperatures create the perfect environment for Pinot noir. Also, Oregon’s Columbia Gorge is becoming increasingly popular for Pinot noir production. What sets Oregon Pinot noir apart from the Pinot of other regions, both New and Old World, is its innate combination of grace with both power and restraint.
