About Blakeslee Vineyard Estate
Formerly known as Quail Hill Vineyard, this highly regarded Estate was purchased by Bill and Sheila Blakeslee in 2005. The Blakeslee Vineyard Estate has been producing top quality Pinot Noir grapes for over 16 years. This property is potentially one of the Chehalem Mountain AVA’s best vineyard sites. The vineyard is situated on the South side of the Chehalem Mountains at an elevation of 500’ to 550’. We sit on a North/South slope and the vineyard crowns East to West, where we can capture the long cool morning sun and the hotter shorter afternoon exposure. We farm 100% sustainably and earned our “Live” Certification with the 2012 harvest. We dry farm and have learned through expert vineyard management and experienced wine making techniques to handle the various curve balls thrown by Mother Nature each year. The vines are grafted to root stock and planted in Laurelwood soil (a powdery volcanic soil) atop a hard clay sub-soil. This unique combination of soils, premium Pinot Noir and Chardonnay clones, vineyard management, and winemaking result in unique and distinctive wines.
