Notes from the producer:
"Granville Wine Co. is the life’s work of second-generation wine growers Ayla and Jackson Holstein.
Their lifelong culmination of skills and experiences from working locally and abroad in the wine industry sponsored their vision to create Granville, where they strive to grow and craft world class wines with utmost distinction and typicity.
The Holstein Estate Vineyard and winery are located on Jackson’s childhood property in the Dundee Hills where they produce just a few thousand cases annually while also partnering to source fruit from some of Oregon’s most regarded and distinct vineyards. A unique level of focus and attention to detail is placed on the organic growing process year-round to ensure purity of source before harvesting ever takes place.
Once hand harvested and in the cellar, the fruit is nurtured through fermentation and gently ushered to rest utilizing reductive methods along with exclusively tight grained French oak barrels. Once bottled, wines typically rest for 3 to 12 months before becoming available to the public.
While each vintage presents unique challenges, experiences, and expressions that are showcased in their bottlings, the goal is to continuously create wines that capture history with intention. Together with their small team and surrounding village, Ayla and Jackson take pride in being an example of old-world family vintners in the evolving new world context."
