Left Coast’s 2016 vintage shows wonderful depth, richness, balance and complexity across the board. Our trio of vineyard-designated blocks is especially sharply focused and powerful. Willamette: The Pinot Noir Auction has prompted us for the first time to create a blend of impeccable proportions from these three elements and create a generous, seamless wine that greatly expresses our unique setting in the Willamette Valley.
Left Coast is family-owned, 100% estate-grown and committed to sustainability. We put all of our love into the land. In the early years we focused on vineyard development and landscaping. The beauty of the estate is what inspired our family to come to Oregon. Our goal is to enhance and share that natural beauty with others through thoughtful winemaking, sustainable practices and habitat conservation. Our vineyards and winery are LIVE-certified sustainable. We are 90% solar powered and have partnered with US Department of Fish & Wildlife to restore 100 acres of old growth oak on the property to their native savannah state. We warmly welcome you to come visit the estate and to share its beauty and wines with you.
