About Temperance Hill Vineyard

Temperance Hill Vineyard, at 890 feet elevation, sits at the very top of the southern end of the Eola-Amity Hills in and around the caldera of an ancient volcano. Temperance Hill Vineyard is a certified organic site that sprawls over 100 acres of multiple exposures. The Pinot Noir vines are old Pommard and Wädenswil heritage clones along with some younger plantings of Dijon clones 113, 114, 115, 667,777 and clone 943. The Chardonnay vines are a split between Dijon clones 96 and 76 with a variety of rootstocks as well as some own-rooted vines. The site’s high elevation, the fact that it is planted mostly to the pioneering Oregon Pinot Noir clones, and its regular exposure to the cool Pacific breezes of the Van Duzer Corridor mean Temperance Hill Vineyard produces pure and fresh wines with red raspberry, rhubarb, currant, blueberry and bright cherry flavors. They also possess an inherent and pleasant herbal component with aromas of tea and peppery spice. In many years, Temperance Hill wines may smell of Douglas fir or grapefruit and have a sweet, delightfully fruity candy character much like a young cru Beaujolais.
