Annoucing Our 2017 Eclipse Extravaganza

Given that Oregon is the best spot in the U.S. to view this phenomenon, let’s take advantage of our neighboring vineyard’s 860’ foot elevation. Experience this once-in-a-lifetime event where a spectacular 70-mile view in all directions provides the perfect vantage point. We will watch the sun as it peeks over the Cascade Range with full totality at 10:15 am. After the totality, let’s celebrate with Champagne, brunch and live music along with a few special bottles from Mark’s St. Innocent Library. ​Don’t miss this unforgettable day.

Chardonnay awarded a 92-point rating

A tasting room best-seller and staff favorite, our 2013 Chardonnay from Freedom Hill Vineyard has also gained a critical fan in the Wine Spectator. While most of our single-vineyard Pinot noirs garner this kind of recognition each year, it is rarer that a white wine joins the ranks.

Published on their Web site, the 92-point rating was accompanied by this review:  “Fresh, polished and vital, with lively lime acidity to balance the yellow peach, pear and spice flavors, lingering effortlessly. Drink now through 2019. 1,504 cases made.” Read all about Mark’s French inspiration behind this...
