Notes from the producer:
The David Hill Vineyard is a 40-acre contiguous southeast, south and southwest facing hillside nestled within our 140 acre property in the Northern Willamette Valley. Situated between 360′ and 625′ in elevation on Laurelwood soil, this estate vineyard is a special place with a unique and mysterious history – a story still being revealed. The older plantings of self-rooted Pinot Noir, Pinot Blanc, Chasselas, Muscat, Sylvaner, Sémillon, Riesling and Gewürztraminer are 50+ years old. The older vines take advantage of the Laurelwood soil, whose roots have reached the basalt layers and allow the wine from these older vines to express their true sense of place (terroir).
