St. Dolores Estate
Personally farmed by Jim and his crew at the winery, this virgin 40-acre south-facing flank of Parrett Mountain lies just east of Newberg, Oregon. Established in 2009, the vineyard is non-irrigated, organically farmed and sitting at an elevation of 500-700 ft. With eight variants of Jory soil (volcanic) and young vines, the red fruit ripens reasonably early, with moderate acid and substantial structure. Fruit comes from the Front Block planted in 2009 (Pommard, vertical shoot positioned [VSP]) the Lower Block planted in 2010 (Wadenswill, VSP), and the East Block planted in 2011 (Pommard, VSP).

Established in 1981, the vineyard is non-irrigated, organically farmed, and sitting at an elevation of 650-870 ft. With primarily Jory soils, the red fruit is late ripening, with higher acidity and medium tannin. Our fruit comes from several blocks including the oldest, the Front Block-East planted in 1981 (Pommard, head pruned, hanging cane), The Flats planted in 1983 (Wadenswill, head pruned, hanging cane), Rocky Slope (Wadenswill, VSP) and East Back Chardonnay (Clone 96, VSP).
