This is the first opportunity to taste our inaugural vintage of the Rose & Arrow Estate wine. Honed through years of working with copious vineyards around the valley and with the expert guidance of Pedro Parra, our terroir consultant, we have bottled six distinct estate wines from 2016. This auction cuvée is a combination of Worden Hill and Black Walnut Vineyards from the Dundee AVA. A wine of energy and elegance, we invite you to discover this wine before its release, and explore the abundance of nuances you find in your glass.
“Nature begins with a cause and ends with an experience.” – Leonardo Da Vinci
At Chapter 24 Vineyards, we take the experience and look to the natural world for its cause. Since our inception in 2011, we have worked with over 75 different vineyards throughout the Willamette Valley in our quest to find sites that will provide us with Pinot noir to create the style of wine that we want to produce. Working with Pedro Parra, a terroir expert, and our consulting winemaker, Comte Louis-Michel Liger-Belair, we have identified six sites that will become our Rose & Arrow Estate Pinot noirs.
