Field Blend | White Salmon Vineyard, Columbia Gorge AVA

From: $0.00

Located in southwest section of White Salmon vineyard in San Crispin Field, two rock-ridden acres make up our Field Blend. Syrah, Malbec, Pinot Noir, Blaufränkisch and Chardonnay vines are closely planted in volcanic soil. The vines are hand-tended & harvested.

Grown only a mile from the Oregon Boarder, on the cool end of the Columbia Gorge AVA, these grapes show rich chewy flavors with complexity and tannins. The blend is dominated with Syrah and Malbec, followed by Pinot Noir and sprinkling of Blaufränkisch and Chardonnay.

Vineyard

Underwood Mountain has recently been coined the “Burgundy of the Gorge.” This is because of the climate, the soil, and the ability to grow Burgundian style wines. White Salmon Vineyard grows some of the best Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grapes not only in The Gorge but in the United States.

We listen to our grapes. They tell us what they need and how we can help them. We direct them like a conductor leads his orchestra. Each player knows how to play his instrument and all he needs is a good leader. Peter Brehm knows how to fine tune and direct his grapes.

We have forty-plus years of grape purchasing experience and 25 years of growing and processing experience.

In addition to Chardonnay and Pinot Noir we also grow Syrah, Malbec Riesling and Sauvignon Blanc. Our goal has always been to provide the finest expression of each varietal by matching it to our very diverse vineyard’s terroir. We follow organic growing guidelines, although we do not have any certifications.
