About WillaKenzie Vineyards

The planting of the Willakenzie Vineyards started in 1992. Today there are a little over 103 acres planted mostly to Pinot Noir grapes, but also Pinot Blanc, Pinot Gris, Pinot Meunier, Gamay Noir and a small amount of Chardonnay. The vineyards and the winery are named after the soil on which the vines are planted, the sedimendary "Willakenzie" soil. This reflects our belief in the critical role that the "terroir" plays in making wines of substance and their ability to age gracefully. The vineyards are planted on hillsides facing South and range in elevation from 310 feet to 750 feet. Clonal diversity was an important decision made at the beginning of the project, because we believe that by blending different clonal selections, one can produce a wine with greater complexity. Today there are 13 different clones of Pinot Noir planted on the 420 acres site. The vineyards are nestled between majestic Douglas Firs and pasture to promote bio-diversity and habitats for natural predators and wild life. The vineayrds are grown sustainably and are LIVE certified.
