Our winery has been crafting excellent award-winning wines for 20 years. The secret to our success lies in combining traditional winemaking techniques with new-world technologies to produce wines with delicate balance, finesse and structure. Our wines are distinct and we strive to preserve each varietal’s aroma, acidity and structure.
The winery was founded by a group of wine-loving friends on a property once owned by the Cistercian Order of Nuns, a religious order of the Roman Catholic Church. It has operated as a fruit orchard, and was owned by a local family who operated it as a mink farm until 1970 when it was abandoned. In 1995, the land was converted into a vineyard, the first grapes were planted in 1996, the first vintage was made in 2000, and the winery opened in 2002. To date, we farm more than 180 estate acres.
On the nose, this Pinot Noir displays lots of red berries including: cherry, raspberry and a drop of cranberry. The French oak layers in a little vanilla and cedar smoke.
The palate is medium body just like a good Pinot Noir should be. The texture is soft but warm with hints of more red fruit and plum. The finish has good length making this a great food wine.
