Pinot Blanc is near and dear to the YVV family, we try not to play favorites,but, if we had a favorite white wine, Pinot Blanc would be it. Before it was commercially recognized we were growing it and learning how to make it they way we like. Rich full flavor, minerality, hints of melon and stone fruit with a creamy, supple texture that is just delicious. Pair with smoked cheeses, a nice poached halibut, or some oysters, after all, Pinot Blanc was meant to pair with oysters. From our family to yours, cheers!

If you have had our Pinot Gris before, then you are in for a familiar treat. If you haven’t, get ready for a ride that is scantily clad, but not smutty! Notes of spiced Asian pear and citrus on the nose transition to a bright and fruit forward palate. The full, rich texture in combination with the tropical flavors trick you into experiencing a perceived sweetness, which makes this wine pair beautifully with slightly spicy dishes. From our family to yours, cheers!
Our Chardonnay is a field blend of two Dijon clones; 76 and 95, which are ideal matches for the Oregon climate, showing a wide variety of characteristics depending on the growing season. This warmer year lends to tropical notes, such as the pineapple aromatics you'll find, as well as ripe flavors of pecan, which are contrasted with bright and lively prickly pear characteristics, adding a dynamic note to the long finish. Enjoy with white fish and cream sauces to enhance your tasting.
A co-fermentation of 20% Pinot Blanc and 80% Pinot Noir highlights the best of both varietals; a round vibrant texture with hints of minerality from the Pinot Blanc, compliment the Pinot Noir's rich floral notes of violet and rose petal. The wine displays a beautiful coral hue, and shows flavors of passion fruit, pomegranate, and strawberry. Pairs well with shades and a sunhat, for a restful and refreshing experience. Enjoy!
This blend is put together with the intention of showing what our estate has to offer. Our gorgeous estate ranges from 200 to 600 feet in elevation, with various volcanic and sedimentary soils; you will notice expressions of high toned red fruit, a rich, textured mid-palate, black cherry, deep black fruit qualities, and earthy aromatics. Notice how the structure and acidity create a dynamic perception, making this wine a culinary delight.

This was a wonderful vintage in the Willamette Valley. Spring came early and the summer was warm, which allowed us to pick a fully ripened and large crop in early October. The wine shows the lush fruit forward qualities of similar vintages (2002, 2006, 2014), while maintaining the firm structure and balance typical of our McMinnville AVA terroir.

Our two Riesling blocks were planted in 1983 and 1985, they are own rooted and always pruned with low yields and quality in mind, as to not over exert the vine. This make for aromatics reminiscent of the old Alsatian classic Rieslings and a rich full texture. This Riesling has 3% residual sugar, making it semi sweet; which balances the natural acidity.

The Tall Poppy Reserve is only made in outstanding vintages. In 31 years of winemaking 2012 marks the 8th time that this specialty wine has been produced. Fruit is sourced entirely from our "Old Pommard" block which was planted in 1983, and the wine is a true single block, single vineyard designate wine. After vinification, this wine spent 20 months in locally made new French oak barrels, and the resulting Tall Poppy Reserve is a great representation of the area; dark, supple, rich, and structured, a true illustration of Yamhill terroir.
