Portlandia partners with passionate growers with vineyards throughout the Willamette Valley.
Just of south of Portland, the Willamette has a temperate climate, with damp, cool winters and warm, dry summers, influenced by ocean breezes that find their way through the gaps in the hills. These are ideal conditions for cool climate varietals like Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris.
The soils in the region are a rich and diverse result of ancient tectonic shifts and volcanic eruptions. On the hillsides, where most of the vineyards are planted, the soils are predominantly a mixture of marine sedimentary, windblown loess and volcanic basalt. The most common volcanic soil type is red Jory, which provides excellent drainage for superior quality grapes.
Portlandia sources from vineyards throughout the Willamette, including three sub-appellations: Yamhill-Carlton, Dundee Hills and McMinnville. The McMinnville AVA is home to our single vineyard Pinot Noir from the Momtazi Vineyard.
