Planting on varying soils, elevations and slopes contribute to the complexities and subtleties of our wines. The cool Pacific Ocean breezes driven into the Willamette Valley through the Van Duzer Corridor, ending just west of our vineyards, moderate our sunny summer days.
The Orchards Pinot Gris
"The 45th parallel certainly does agree with this Gris. Rose aromatics introduce light brightness that quickly picks up depth and continuity. Citrus, straw and green apple unite in a harmonious balance that lingers long."

Truffle Hill Chardonnay
“Elegant and expansive. Delicate floral and citrus aromas roll from the glass. Intensity of flavor takes over in the mouth as grapefruit and sweet hay mingle. A long, lingering finish completes the praise for this panel favorite.”
