About this wine
2015 Pinot Noir (776) - Willamette Valley, Oregon - 2 Barrels produced. Once we realized how different our well known Spätburgunder was from Pinot Noir grown along the Sonoma Coast and Carneros we went up north and found a small organic vineyard farmed by Rob Clarke in the middle of the forest just east of Salem, Oregon. In the nose black cherry, orange preserve, blood orange rind, sandalwood, ever so slight hint of charred oak. Great acidity, freshness, fresh red fruit, youthful tannins, vibrant acidity.

Julian & Sebastian Erggelet
Owners and Winemakers
We are Julian and Sebastian Erggelet. Our interest in wine was sparked while sipping leftover Riesling out of Grandfather Erggelet’s goblet as kids. After growing up in southern Germany and coming of age as vinophile dilettantes, we pursued degrees in Philosophy & Economics (Sebastian) and Medicine (Julian). As we moved along these career paths, the focus of our lives gradually shifted from sitting under fluorescent office lights to walking through the vineyards of the Rhine valley with Bertrand Russell in the back pocket and exploring the joys of farming, eating good food and drinking great wines. After this we embarked on a journey around the globe to taste, experience and assemble the taste buds necessary to make intriguing wine.EXPLORE THIS WINERY
