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 the 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 small Chardonnay block was planted in 2005 with two different clones of Chardonnay selected for ideal ripening in the Willamette Valley. We always grow with low yields in mind to ensure quality first and foremost. The nose of this mellow Chardonnay Starts with Floral earthy notes, and evolves into a nice spice once on the palate. The wine has a percieved sweet creamy enry supported by a full and viscous texture in the mouth; the finish has a resounding perfume floral note that lingers, lovely with seafood and creamy pasta.
Our Rosé of Pinots is made by, pressing Pinot Noir (80%) and Pinot Blanc (20%) together. The Pinot Blanc adds a nice richness to the texture, while the Pinot Noir contributes the beautiful color and floral aromas; together, they make a light and balanced Rosé for your enjoyment. Enjoy on a stormy day when you want to drink liquid sunshine, or with a picnic of charcuterie to refresh you on a warm sunny day. This beautiful Rosé is perfect for lifting your spirits anytime of year you’d like. Enjoy!
The elegant and floral Pinot Noir expresses Yamhill terroir in a cooler vintage. It is a blend of multiple clones, planted in our many different soil types, over a range of elevations. As wine-growers and winemakers, we are able to create diversity and complexity not only in the plantings but also in the cellar, by using an array of different oak and winemaking techniques. Enjoy with a variety of different foods, which highlight the fruit and earth driven flavors.

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.
