Pinot Noir-Willamette Valley
WILLAMETTE VALLEY OREGON
PINOT NOIR PERFECTION
Willamette Valley is Oregon’s oldest and largest wine region and is recognized as one of the world’s foremost producers of Pinot Noir, the region’s signature grape. The region’s unique geography and climate provide the perfect environment for the notoriously finicky grape to reach its full potential, resulting in world-class wines.
Framed by the Coast Mountain Range to the west and the Cascades to the east, the region follows the Willamette River for over 150kms. The valley sits at the same latitude as Burgundy – France’s famous Pinot Noir region – and its northern position allows for extended sunshine during the growing season, ensuring full phenolic ripening of grapes. The cool maritime climate promotes fully developed fruit flavours, bright acidity and freshness, and the complex soils add to the region’s unique terroir.
