Cramoisi, French for crimson, is derived from the delightful crimson clover that blankets the vineyard every spring. Vibrant, elegant, earthy; Cramoisi reflects the color, beauty and complexity of our wines born from red volcanic soils. Estate grown with respect for the land, the grape and hardworking vineyard stewards. Every bottle honors and delivers our passion, from soil to glass.
In the vineyard we have matched rootstocks and clones to the wide variety of soils to capture the best possible expressions of Pinot Noir from our vineyard site. We have 11 blocks of Pinot Noir, our clones are a mix of the best clones from Oregon’s Pinot plantings (Pommard), the Dijon clones imported form Burgundy (667, 777) and more rare Heirloom/Heritage clones such as “Holstein” and Vosne Romanee (clone 122). Cramoisi Vineyard sits perfectly between 500-600 feet of elevation in the middle of the slope where you would typically find a Grand Cru.
It is our joy and pleasure to share our passion with our guests. Please join us for a tasting of our finest boutique wines releases and weather permitting a tour of the vineyard. Every time of year offers its own opportunity to experience the vines in their constant evolution
