SOIL INTO WINE 

In the vineyard we have matched rootstocks and clones to the wide variety of soils to capture the best possible expressions of Pinot Noir from our vineyard site.  We have 11 blocks of Pinot Noir, our clones are a mix of the best clones from Oregon's Pinot plantings (Pommard), the Dijon clones imported form Burgundy (667, 777) and more rare Heirloom/Heritage clones such as "Holstein" and Vosne Romanee (clone 122). Cramoisi Vineyard sits perfectly between 500-600 feet of elevation in the middle of the slope where you would typically find a Grand Cru.
