Winemaker Notes

As refreshing as a liquid fruit salad in a glass, this wine is ruby in color and opens with aromas of black cherry, raspberry, blackberry, and caramel. A fruit-forward and sweet entry lead to flavors that mirror aromas with the addition of cranberry, dark chocolate and baking spices that flow into a juicy mid-palate and soft, round finish accented by balancing acidity. Our most versatile Pinot Noir for food pairing, this wine lends itself well to sweet and tangy BBQ dishes, sushi, spicy Asian and Indian dishes, wood-fired flatbreads, gourmet burgers, and salmon. Try serving slightly chilled on a warm summer evening.

COMMENTARY: The 2018 Willamette Valley Vineyards Whole Cluster Pinot Noir is a bright and lively wine. TASTING NOTES: This wine exhibits powerful red fruit aromas and flavors. Enjoy it with lightly-seasoned, grilled salmon. (Tasted: March 4, 2020, San Francisco, CA)

Wine Enthusiast

Irresistibly delicious, this perennial winner rocks bright, freshly picked raspberry and marionberry fruit, set against a core of minerality. A mix of Pommard and Wädenswil clones, all fermented with the stems, it sidesteps any herbal excess and finishes with a palate-cleansing burst of acidity.

Willamette Valley Vineyards Willamette Valley Vineyards Winery Video

A combination of determination and extraordinary people has brought Willamette Valley Vineyards from a bold idea to one of the region's leading wineries, earning the title "One of America's Great Pinot Noir Producers," from Wine Enthusiast Magazine.

The “budwood” of Willamette Valley Vineyards began long before its founding in 1983 by vintner Jim Bernau. His Dad was hired by a California winemaker to secure the first winery license in Oregon since Prohibition. Jim’s Dad allowed him small tastes of Richard Sommer’s wine, lighting a path that led Jim from home winemaking to studies at UC Davis and eventually Beaune, France.

In 1983, Jim cleared away an old pioneer plum orchard in the Salem Hills and hand-watered his first plantings using 17 lengths of 75’ garden hose.

Jim's vision of organizing the support of wine enthusiasts to build a winery that would produce world-class wines through shared ownership has resulted in more than 16,000 owners. The winery's Common (WVVI) and Preferred (WVVIP) are traded on the NASDAQ. 

The winery sources all of its barrel-aged Pinot Noir from its estate vineyards and practices environmentally sustainable farming. All of the vineyards have been certified sustainable through LIVE (Low Impact Viticulture and Enology) and Salmon-Safe programs since 1997.
