Defined by Diversity
Southern Oregon’s latitude and prevailing oceanic winds create a 7 month European-like growing season that distinguishes it from all other west coast (and American) growing regions and this uniquely defines, identifies and unifies us as an ideal place to grow wine grapes.
Our wide diurnal temperature swings and mountainous topography; which subdivides the region into a patchwork of mesoclimates ideally suited to growing over 70 different grape varieties is what defines our diversity!
Thus, we ripen a dazzling number of grape varieties each at its “Climatic Edge” with great natural acidity, reasonable alcohol levels and classic varietal aromas and flavors.
