“When I first stepped foot on what is now Revana Vineyard, I was taken back by the property’s dramatic range of slope and elevation. I immediately sensed a great opportunity and challenge to cultivate a world-class vineyard on its diverse mix of soil types and microclimates. Over the past 15 years we have continued to refine our farming practices, block by block, and learned a great deal about the property’s unique personalities. For this wine we selected six blocks from our original plantings: Block 1-667, Block 3-113, Block 4-115, Block 5-Wädenswil, Block 7-Pommard, Block 8-777.” – Dr. Madaiah Revana
Like a world-class thoroughbred, this wine races right out of the gate with bold flavors and intoxicating aromatics, builds momentum on the palate and closes with a long stride and a graceful finish.
In 2005, vintner Dr. Madaiah Revana acquired our 80-acre estate located on the northwestern edge of the Dundee Hills AVA where iron-rich volcanic soils converge with ancient marine sedimentary soils of the Pacific Ocean. With a total of 18 soil types, each vineyard block of Pinot noir, Chardonnay, Riesling and Pinot gris is individually cultivated in celebration of the property’s diverse soils, clonal selections and microclimates. In the cellar, winemaker Bryan Weil carries out a minimalist approach to winemaking by focusing on small-lot fermentations and native yeasts to produce wines that express a distinct sense of time and place.
