FIRST RELEASE CHARDONNAY AND PINOT NOIR.
With struggle, comes character. Our diverse array of soils, Willakenzie, Bellpine and Rickreall among them, combine with glacial rocks from the Missoula floods to create the ideal, if stubborn, terroir essential to Chardonnay and Pinot Noir.

TONY RYNDERS, OUR WINEMAKER.
Hooked by one vineyard summer, Tony Rynders went on to a Masters in Enology and Viticulture from UC Davis. He then honed his craft in Napa, Northern Italy, Australia and Tuscany before migrating to the vibrant northwest Pinot Noir scene. After assistant and head winemaker roles at Argyle and Hogue cellars, he took the reins at Domaine Serene. There, he became one of the most highly acclaimed winemakers in America, with more 90+ Wine Spectator scores than any contemporary. Few are as integral to the international status Willamette Valley Pinot Noir and Chardonnay now enjoy. In 2008, he started consulting on projects close to his heart. We’re proud to be one of them. We’re truly lucky to have him.
