WHAT WE GROW
Our 15-acre vineyard currently produces 9 different varietals planted in 2010. Our first estate harvest is expected Fall 2015. Our vines are notable for their ability to withstand frigid temperatures and have a short growing season, both of which allow these grapes to thrive and grow abundantly in the high desert of Central Oregon.
La Crescent (prounounced La Cress-ent)
La Crescent’s intense nose of apricot, peach, and citrus lends itself to superior quality off-dry or sweet white wines. Produced in a Germanic style, La Crescent wine is reminiscent of Vignoles or Riesling. The grape’s high acidity provides good structure for excellent dessert or late-harvest style wines. Pairs well with shellfish, fish, chicken and green salads.
St. Croix (pronounced Saint Croy)
St. Croix grapes produce medium to full bodied, dry, deep red wines with low tannins, good fruity aromas, and have currant and other dried fruit flavor aspects. Production often employs oak barrel ageing to add even more complexity to the wine’s bouquet and flavors. Pairs well with beef and comfort foods.
Marechal Foch (prounounced Mah-reh-shal Fosh)
Foch can produce excellent red wines typically with deep purple color and often possessing Burgundian characteristics. These include a light to medium structure and dark berry fruit aromas and flavors. Pairs well with charbroiled meats and veggies.
Vignoles (pronounced Viyn-ole)
Vignoles can have a variety of tastes and flavor/ acid profiles. Made as a bone-dry wine, it can be clean and crisp, with a touch of tartness of green apples. The fruit is citrus in character, with underlying tones of peach and tropical fruit which goes well with oak aging. The residual sugar/acid balance can add to the wine’s complexity, while providing a clean edge to the finish. Pairs well with strong cheeses such as asiago, limburger, or taleggio.
Traminette (prounounced Trah-mn-ett)
Traminette is a white wine grape that can be made into different wine styles, with different methods which can significantly alter its taste. The wines can be made either dry or semi-dry. The textbook description for Traminette wines are wines that are characteristic of its Gewürtztraminer parent: spicy, fragrant wines of excellent quality. These flavorful wines not only have spice, but nice honey and apricot flavors. Pairs well with pork, turkey and asian cuisine.
Frontenac Gris (pronounced Frawn-ten-ak Gree)
Frontenac gris wines present aromas of peach and apricot with hints of enticing citrus and tropical fruit. A brilliant balance of fruit and acidity creates lively, refreshing wines. Unique and complex flavors make this an excellent grape for table, dessert, and ice wines. Pairs well with a variety of cheeses, pork, chicken and northern Italian cuisine.
Marquette (prounounced Mahr-kett)
Marquette’s high sugar and moderate acidity make it very manageable in the winery. Finished wines are complex, with attractive ruby color, pronounced tannins, and desirable notes of cherry, berry, black pepper, and spice on both nose and palate. As a red wine, Marquette represents a new standard in cold hardy viticulture and enology. Pairs well with robust food like hearty pasta, grilled steak, or wild game.
Leon Millot (pronounced Lee-on Mill-oh)
Leon Millot is an early ripening black grape, a sister of Marechal Foch but earlier and more productive. Makes a red wine with a distinct berry aroma and a hint of chocolate, can blend well with Marechal Foch. This wine pairs well with red meats, spicy dishes, and havarti cheese.
La Crosse (prounounced La Cross)
La Crosse grapes can produce good quality, clean, fruity white wines of moderate acidity. They are often made in a dry or semi-dry style. Pairs well with seasoned chicken and salads.
