Stag Hollow is an Old World-styled vineyard located in the Yamhill-Carlton District (American Viticultural Area (AVA)) in the northern Willamette Valley, Oregon. Our estate-grown pinot noirs are nurtured on moderately steep south-facing slopes of Willakenzie soils planted at a very high density, exceeding 3,000/acre. We are a small, family estate with an unwavering commitment to crafting profound and concentrated wines that express attributes of the vineyard and distinct management practices to enhance wine quality.
The 34 acre estate is being planted slowly to better understand terroir and grape variety interactions at this site. Currently, nine clones (cultivars) of pinot noir, including five of the newly introduced French Dijon clones, are planted. Other varieties include chardonnay, including four of the newly introduced French Dijon clones, muscat ottonel, early muscat, and experimental blocks of northern Italian varieties
Maintaining natural habitat for wildlife to enhance biological diversity and improve water quality are important management priorities at our estate. In the vineyard, we limit the amount of chemicals used and maintain cover crops to prevent erosion and enhance soil health. Ten acres of the estate have been designated as a wildlife preserve.
We invite you enjoy the long lingering flavors of our Stag Hollow pinot noir. We are open for sales by appointment or on Memorial Day and Thanksgiving weekends and ship wine anytime.
