2017 Partenaire Pinot Noir has a dynamic and complementary synergy between two of our top vineyard sites: Lange Estate and Freedom Hill Vineyards. Rich and round with a dense dark-fruited character, finely tuned tannins and a lingering acidity on the finish, this wine is sure to please for years to come.
More than 30 years ago, the Lange family founded their winery in the red volcanic soils of the Dundee Hills. The year 1987 marked their first vintage and consisted of the three noble varietals they embrace today: Pinot noir, Pinot gris and Chardonnay. With fruit sourced from their estate vineyards and heritage sites throughout the Willamette Valley, the Lange’s focus on terroir driven wines through their small lot, artisanal winemaking philosophy—setting the standard for truly handcrafted and beautifully balanced wines.
