Vineyard Expressions

September 2023

ter·roir /terˈwär/ noun noun: terroir

The complete natural environment in which a particular wine is produced, including factors such as the soil, topography, and climate. The characteristic taste and flavor imparted to a wine by the environment in which it is produced.

Vanessa Conlin, MW said it best..."Single-vineyard wines are the absolute expression of terroir, showcasing a particular plot of vines without any other sites as part of the blend. The result is the true personality of the vineyard captured in a bottle with nothing to mask its individual character.....the unique fingerprint of its place and vintage, allowing you to transport yourself through time and space."

The wines chosen for this months release are exciting examples of what you get when you combine passion and skill with exceptional single-vineyard sites across Oregon.
