Oregon’s finest pinot noir.
One exclusive collection.
2016 Vintage Collection – available for purchase October 2019 through March 2020 – $1495.00
Every year, the Dundee Hills Winegrowers Association offers limited edition sets of Pinot Noir showcasing the distinctive quality of each winery within a single vintage. A master’s class in terroir and winemaking style awaits you in each collection. This is a unique acquisition or gift for any collector, enthusiast, or oenophile.
2016 was a warmer than average spring jumpstarting the growing season, with a few unusually hot days during flowering that led to fewer, more concentrated clusters. An even summer, with fewer temperature fluctuations than the previous two years, led to balanced ripening while cool evenings kept acid levels healthy and vibrant. In the end, yields were lower than usual, but the resulting wines represent every gorgeous trait we’ve come to associate with the region. Consistently well-structured, with great red fruit characteristics backed by the spice and earth that’s synonymous with the Dundee Hills, these wines are vocal, layered and destined for greatness.
The 2016’s offer something for everybody. Purists will appreciate the refined elegance. Fans of fruit forward style will love the deeply radiant makeup of the wines and Old-World enthusiasts will be drawn to the subtle savory qualities and well-integrated tannins. ”

2012 – SOLD OUT
“The 2012s combine ripe flavors with Oregon’s natural penchant for transparency and elegance, exactly what happens in a typically cool climate when Mother Nature lavishes sun and warmth on a smaller-than-usual crop.
