This wine’s story: Walla Walla is on the Oregon border and with our personal love of Pinot Noir, we know we had to produce ours alongside our neighbors to the south. This is the second vintage of “Origins”, our annual homage to the people and places from our past who helped us become who we are today. This vintage is a great mix of red fruit flavors intermingling with earthy, rustic notes. It’s a classic Willamette Valley style, balanced and easy-drinking by nature. This one is particularly special to Stephen, as the image on the label shows his grandparents together in one of their favorite places, on Lake Simcoe, in 1954.
