It all started with a glass of Pinot Noir…and from there things got a little crazy. The purchase of 35 acres in the Dundee Hills led to fully realizing the dream of growing grapes and making small quantities of wines that reflect the unique characteristics of our vineyard.
The vineyard was planted gradually from 1998 to 2001, is certified organic and is non-irrigated. We now have 27 acres in production, primarily Pinot Noir, along with smaller blocks of Chardonnay, Pinot Gris and Pinot Blanc. Most of our grapes are sold to other local wineries, including several of our Dundee Hills neighbors.
Thistle Wines are made exclusively with grapes from our vineyard and minimally handled in the cellar to capture the essence of the vineyard in the wines. We produce less than 700 cases of wine a year and future production will be limited to allow us to dedicate our time and attention to growing grapes and making wine.
Our new tasting room at the vineyard allows us to share both our wines and our amazing location. The building sits among the vines, allowing you to get as close as possible to where it all begins.
