Fairsing Vineyard’s 60-bottle offering, McNally’s Folly, is a selection from four blocks within our estate vineyard and from distinct barrels in the winery. This elegant wine showcases our unique site and the ideal growing season of 2017. McNally’s Folly is our proof that our venture has not been a folly, as suggested by a teasing family member, but a commitment to our vineyard, our family and making others smile.
Fairsing Vineyard is an expression of Mary Ann and Mike McNally’s commitment to heritage, sustainability and the joys of life. Founded in 2005, we farm 38 acres of Pinot noir and five acres of Chardonnay on well-drained marine sedimentary soils in the Yamhill-Carlton appellation of the Willamette Valley. Our site is distinguished by biodiversity, varied topography and panoramic views. We exceed LIVE sustainability standards in the vineyard and its surrounding Certified Family Forest. In addition to growing select grapes for our estate wines, we provide fruit to six outstanding winemakers for their Fairsing Vineyard–designated wines.
