Vineyards: Four sites for 2020. Two from the North Plains farmed by the Marigny winemakers themselves using organic practices, including a variety of cover crops such as native flowers, edible greens and root vegetables. The third is in Chehalem Mountains AVA and is farmed organically in collaboration with the owners, the fourth is in the McMinnville AVA and was farmed in “Lutte Raisonnée” (=sustainable) in 2020, and has since converted to organic practices in collaboration with the Marigny team and the vineyard owners.

Making of: the vineyards were vinified separately, 2 to 3 weeks of carbonic fermentation (depending on tank / vineyard) with indigenous yeast. Pressed directly into old neutral barrels where they rested on gross lees for about 10 months, never stirred or racked until bottling.
