The Vineyard

The Cortell Rose Vineyard is located in the northern section of the Eola-Amity Hills AVA.  This vineyard sits at 600 feet elevation on an East facing slope with beautiful views of Mt. Hood. The Pinot Noir was planted in 2010-2014 over volcanic soils and is farmed organically and without any irrigation. We work with two blocks; one at the steep upper-end, the other at the gently sloping lower portion of the vineyard.  

2018 Vintage 

2018 started with a cool and wet spring setting the vines up nicely for the unusually dry summer that followed. Despite the dry conditions, temperatures didn’t break into triple digits, which was welcomed after a string of unusually hot summers in Oregon the previous years. Our dry-farmed vineyards develop deep roots that allowed them to excel, even without getting any rain from early May through the end of September.  Even though 2018 was a moderate and even-keeled growing season, it produced wines with wonderful depth and concentration, all while maintaining lively and refreshing characteristics.
