Notes from Patricia Green Cellars:

"At a time when the Dundee Hills was almost exclusively the home to the burgeoning Oregon wine industries’ initial founders, Hal Medici planted his first vines in 1976 on Bell Rd. It is located due north of downtown Newberg in an area that is now part of the Chehalem Mountains AVA. Over the course of the next 25 years, the vineyard was expanded to its current size. Although the vineyard is planted to Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Riesling, Patricia Green Cellars sources only Pinot Noir from four distinct sections.

Medici Vineyard is a good example of what you might find in the large, diverse and far-ranging Chehalem Mountains AVA. Our other two vineyards, Lia's and Olenik, also in this AVA are largely planted in Marine Sedimentary soil. Medici begins at over 500’ in elevation and rises to close to 900’ elevation, putting it squarely in the section of hillside that consists entirely of Volcanic soil. Medici is, in fact, planted in Jory soil which gives it a flavor profile more in common with our Dundee Hills’ wines than wines from the same appellation just down the same road".
