Conte de le Terre is a love letter to the masters of old-world winemaking. This collection of delicious wines pays homage to the craft of winemaking.
The grapes are from 20-year-old vines spanning across five different family vineyards in the Willamette Valley, Oregon. The vineyards are all certified organic. The grapes were grown in both Jory (basalt-based volcanic soil, high in iron and nutrient-rich) and Marine Sedimentary soils. They were hand-picked and fermented with native yeasts. They were cold soaked for 5 days in stainless steel tanks with 7-14 days of extended maceration which is when seeds and skins are left in contact for a longer period of time. The wine is racked off into French oak barrels and aged for 15 months.
Did You Know? Pinot Noir is a difficult grape to grow. More so than other grapes, it thrives on well-draining soil and with low yields. It needs dry, but not-too-dry conditions and most importantly it loves cool climates.
