The Réflexion (Reflection) cuvée is aptly named because, in the words of Elizabeth Fishel, “a sister is both your mirror and your opposite.” Abby's Block and Tallulah's Run, named after our two daughters, are located on our estate and were planted from the same grafted vines, yet year to year develop into two distantly different wines that curiously mirror our two daughters’ personalities. Like their namesakes, when these two blocks combine, they create a unique expression that cannot be replicated.
Celebrating our 20th year on our estate vineyard, we came to the Willamette Valley to produce wines that reflect our values and the diversity of this beautiful place. By utilizing strictly organic practices in the vineyard and minimalist practices in the winery, we feel we are able to demonstrate the unique qualities of our wine, while providing an environment where our family and team members can thrive.
