 Divino Pino Gris   2009

Hyland Vineyard is one of Oregon’s oldest and largest vineyards with its first plantings in 1971. The vineyard is majestically nestled at 600 to 800 feet in the foothills of the Coast Range within the McMinnville AVA. The south facing bench upon which Hyland is planted creates its own unique mesoclimate that keeps the site cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter allowing for a longer and more uniform ripening conducive to premium wine grapes. In fact, Hylands grapes have been contributing to decades of top scoring wines for many benchmark producers. With just over 120 acres planted on volcanic Jory and Nekia soils the combination of soil, microclimates, elevation, and some of the oldest and best plantings consistently put Hyland in the forefront of Oregon’s vineyards.  Our 2009 Oregon Pinot Gris is predominantly sourced from the Hyland Vineyard in McMinnville AVA.  This wine is fermented in small lots and fermented in stainless steel.

Divino Pino Noir   2008
 Willamette Valley, Oregon

2008 was made by the month of October. The amazing cool, dry and sunny weather throughout the month allowed for the even development of all flavors. The small berry size produced from the cool spring made for a greater concentration of flavors with modest tannins and higher acid levels. The 2008 vintage could go down as one of the best since 1999; producing complex well-balanced wine at lower alcohol levels that will age very gracefully. Our 2008 Willamette Valley Pinot Noir is a blend sourced from several vineyards throughout the Willamette Valley. A large portion of the grapes came from our estate vineyard, Hyland Vineyard in McMinnville AVA.  This wine is fermented in small lots and aged completely in French oak (30% new).
