Belle Pente is a vineyard and winery located on a historic 70 acre farm two miles east of the town of Carlton, Oregon in the Yamhill-Carlton American Viticulture Area. Owned and operated by Brian & Jill O’Donnell, Belle Pente produces premium Oregon Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris and Chardonnay.

Notes from Belle Pente:

"Our only non-estate single vineyard Pinot Noir for many years, this hails from Robin and Mike Murto’s terrific high elevation Dundee Hills vineyard planted in 1978. Volcanic Jory soils impart a spice shop aroma hovering over a medley of red fruit.  A classic example of this prestigious appellation from the “high rent district” of the Willamette Valley!"
