Willamette Valley AVA: Selected favorites

In part two of our epic trip to the Willamette Valley, we get deep into the heart of this AVA and learn that Pinot Noir, and stunning white wines from this region, come in many unique forms, including the don’t-miss wineries and wines we discovered there: 

Bells Up — 2020 Jupiter Pinot Noir (Chehalem Mountains AVA): Nearly equal parts heritage clone Pommard and Dijon clone 667– Jupiter showcases aromatics of caramel and red flowers, with guava and pomegranate on the palate.  Bells Up Winery

Lenné Estate Winery — 2017 South Slope Select Pinot Noir (Yamhill-Carlton AVA): Pommard and Dijon 115 clones go into this excellent Pinot Noir, with a savory expression that includes notes of black cherry and vanilla mocha, wood, and a grounded earthiness. Purchase at Lenne’s website

Roots — 2012 Racine (Yamhill-Carlton): Savory, rich expression of Pinot Noir with bright fruit and mellow tannins. Buy here

Stoller Family Estate — 2017 Reserve Pinot Noir: Ripe bing cherry and cola notes with bright acidity and elegant tannins that can be enjoyed now or added to the cellar. Purchase at Stoller’s website
