Lavinea Tualatin Estate Pinot noir bottle

Tualatin Estate Vineyard Pinot Noir

Willamette Valley AVA

One of Oregon’s most historic vineyard sites, The Tualatin Estate originated amongst the visionaries in the very first wave of Pinot Noir plantings in the Willamette Valley, alongside Ponzi and Eyrie Vineyards. The vineyard was planted on Laurelwood soils at the foothills of the Coast Range in 1973 on its own roots and has been dry farmed since. We are deeply committed to this site because it produces a Pinot Noir of great vibrancy and length, a unique and consistent flavor signature with that extra dimension on the palate that only 40 + year old vines can achieve. Prior Vintage 94 Points Vinous and 94 Points & Editor’s Choice Wine Enthusiast.  More Details >

Lavinea Lazy River Vineyard Pinot noir bottle

Lazy River Vineyard Pinot Noir

Yamhill-Carlton AVA

Perched at the foothills of the Coast Range on a south-facing slope, Lazy River Vineyard is a bijou of a site within the AVA.

Combined with a southern exposure that insures long growing days, these vines provide us with grapes that have depth and bright lush fruit flavors, refined texture with a sneaky backbone of refreshing acidity promising a graceful aging potential. 94 Points Wine Spectator and 93 Points from Vinous.
