Cramoisi Hidden Jewel will express the terroir that distinguishes Dundee Hills AVA and the love and passion the winegrowers have for the vines. Vibrant, elegant and mysterious with great balance, Hidden Jewel will captivate your palate with exquisite flavors of silky red berries, dry cranberries, rainy forest, truffles and savory notes with floral aromas. Hidden Jewel comes from the finest grape clusters that grow in Cramoisi Vineyard, farmed with care using organic and ancient methods to express in each bottle the eminence of Pinot noir.
Our adventure started in 2012. The name Cramoisi embodies the delightful crimson clover that blankets the vineyard every spring. Vibrant, elegant, and earthy, Cramoisi reflects the color, beauty and complexity of our wines. We have 11 blocks of Pinot noir planted at 500 to 600 feet in elevation; our clones are a mix of the best from Oregon’s first Pinot plantings (Pommard), Dijon clones imported from Burgundy (667, 777) and more rare heirloom clones such as Holstein and Vosne-Romanée (122). Our farming philosophy follows ancient practices to work in balance with Mother Nature, growing the best possible wines in the Dundee Hills AVA.
