Product Description

Vineyard: Dion Vineyards

Dion Vineyard is a 60 acre vineyard located in Washington County, about two and a half miles from Oak Knoll; parts of the vineyard date back to 1976. Dion Vineyard first delivered grapes to Oak Knoll in 1977. The vineyard has operated its own weather station with data since 1999.

The vineyard is located on southern exposure between 300-500 feet elevation and is on Laurelwood soils. The vineyard is farmed using either organic methods or sustainable methods, based on the location and customer. The spacing of vines ranges from 9X6 to 7X5, depending on when they were planted.

TASTING NOTES:
This single vineyard 2012 Pinot Noir has a huge jammy, fruit forwardness about it.  If ever there was a “big” Pinot Noir, this would be it!
