Notes from Purple Hands:
Haakon Lenai Vineyard is a 35 acre property located in the Dundee Hills. It’s southeast facing and 100% Jory soil ( Volcanic ). It ranges in elevation from 400ft to 700ft. This Vineyard was originally planted by Jon Jennison and was previously called Thistle Vineyard.
Cody and Marque acquired the vineyard in 2019 and have since renamed the site after their children’s middle names; Haakon/Lenai.
Purple Hands is a low input, purity-driven winery. Ferments are a mixture of techniques: Pied de Cuve, native yeasts, and some commercial strains as needed. Whole cluster and skin macerations are vintage-dependent styles. Wines are bottled unfined and unfiltered to retain the honesty of the vineyard.
