Cassin Vineyard - Yamhill Carlton AVA (60%)
Transitioning to Organic
Methven Family Vineyards - Eola-Amity Hills AVA (40%)
LIVE Certified, Herbicide Free
This is our third year with the Cassin Vineyard, located in the Yamhill-Carlton AVA at the far western edges near the coastal range—a location that is truly cool climate and was our last site to be picked again. We are really falling for this site that produces elegant wines with a distinct red berry characteristic. Not too far away is Methven Family Vineyards, set in eastern flanks of the northern Eola-Amity Hills AVA, a vineyard that has provided significant portions of the “Méthode Carbonique” Pinot since we first vintage of the bottling in 2012. The Methven vines were planted in 2001 on soils formed from volcanic remnants, a clay and broken rock soil locally called Nekia, and marine sedimentary overlay against basalt bedrock. We are very excited to announce the transition this past year of both of these vineyards to organic principle farming, including the cessation of systemic herbicides.
