What makes Portlandia special is our view on life—play hard, work later! Being from Oregon, we love Pinot—Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris, and Rosé of Pinot Noir. We hope you do too!

Our Wines

  • Pinot Gris
    Tasting Notes:

    Bright aromas of citrus zest and lemon meringue with crisp, mouthwatering acidity. Incredible minerality and a smooth finish, the citrus and tropical fruit flavors continue to linger on the palate for several minutes.

    Region:

    Willamette Valley, Oregon

    Vintage:

    2020

    Winemaking:

    A warm, dry summer brought early September ripening to our 2020 Oregon Pinot Gris harvest. The result was balanced sugars and acidity. After fermentation, the wine rested on its lees in 100% stainless steel.

  • Rosé
    Tasting Notes:

    This blend is tight and focused, with lovely citrus blossom and rose petal scents lifted by a splash of white aromatics. Fresh aromas are followed by flavors of strawberry and watermelon, structured by a bright, refreshing acidity.

    Region:

    Willamette Valley, Oregon

    Vintage:

    2020

    Winemaking:

    We fermented Pinot Gris on the skins for 7 days and Pinot Noir (separately) following just enough skin contact to capture a bright salmon color. After resting both wines on the lees, we blended a splash of Gewürztraminer and a healthy dose of Riesling and Müller-Thurgau to lift the aromatics. Generous acidity contributes to a well-balanced wine.

  • Pinot Noir
    Tasting Notes:

    Bright aromas of ripe strawberry and raspberry open up on the nose along with a hint of cedar. Vibrant flavors of red cherry and cranberry follow, accompanied by accents of black tea and thyme, with a dash of pink peppercorn. Fine-grained tannins and fresh acidity provide structure and balance through the lingering finish.

    Region:

    Willamette Valley, Oregon

    2020

    As usual, we sourced this lovely Pinot from several vineyards throughout the Willamette Valley in order to provide the best balance for this offering. 10 months in 15% new French wood.​

  • Momtazi Pinot
    Tasting Notes:

    Expressive aromas of fresh blackberry and Bing cherry lift off the nose with hints of spice, cocoa and a dash of nutmeg. On the palate, flavors of strawberry, red currant and fig are backed by subtle hints of tobacco and vanilla. The bright acidity and polished, fine-grained tannins contribute to a rich, textured body. Bold and structured, this is a Pinot Noir that can be enjoyed in its youth or matured through 2027 and beyond.

    Region:

    McMinnville, Willamette Valley, Oregon

    Vintage:

    2019

    Winemaking:

    This biodynamic wine is 100% Pinot Noir from the Momtazi family’s vineyard south of McMinnville, OR. Hand-selected grapes (10% whole cluster, 90% crushed) were fermented in open-top vats using indigenous yeasts and gentle hand punch-downs. As per the Demeter Biodynamic requirements, no additives were used.

  • Big Believer Cabernet
    Tasting Notes:

    This bold Cabernet begins with aromas of blackberry, vanilla and coffee, followed by layered flavors of black cherry, dark plum and sweet spices. Structured by fine, firm tannins and well-integrated acidity, we love to pair this food friendly wine with grilled beef or portabella mushroom dishes

    Region:

    Wahluke Slope, Columbia Valley, Washington

    Vintage:

    2019

    Winemaking:

    Fifteen months in a combination of 20% new and 80% used French oak barrels. The 2019 vintage in the Columbia Valley was shaped by cooler than usual weather, beginning with a moderate spring that led to a later bud break than past years. Temperatures throughout the summer remained temperate and mild. This allowed the gripes to ripen slowly and develop great concentration of flavor, while maintaining bright, balanced acidity.

  • Red Blend
    Tasting Notes:

    Aromas of raspberry, black currant and mocha lead into rich flavors of black cherry, huckleberry and dark chocolate. Rich and fruit forward, this juicy red blend pairs perfectly with BBQ ribs or grilled peach salad.
