Chehalem Mtn

AVA: Chehalem Mountains, Willamette Valley, Oregon

The Chehalem Mountains AVA and the Xander Taryn vineyard are capable of producing bold and fruit driven pinot noir wines but with the complexity and finesse expected from Willamette Valley Pinot Noir.  The Xander Taryn vineyard is a 7 acre planted vineyard site containing Laurelwood and Delena soil types located in this highly-respected viticultural area within Oregon’s north Willamette Valley.  The Pinot Noir block sits at an elevation of 602 ft and is planted on a moderate slope allowing for excellent natural air movement and drainage which combined with the relatively high elevation allows for optimal growing and ripening conditions for the grapes.
