The Wine

Legend has it that in 1947 one of Bill Stoller’s uncles found the body of an unknown man leaning against a tree on our property. Some say he was an outlaw; others say he was an adventurer caught with the wrong man’s wife. Nevertheless, this wine is composed of our original Pommard plantings located on what is privately called “Dead Man’s Hill.” Fermented in a two-ton oak tank with 14% whole cluster, “Dead Man’s Hill” spent 12 months in barrel and four months in tank. Aromatics of cherry, violet, spice and earth lead to a lively, succulent palate with a plush texture and seamless finish.

The Winery

Stoller Family Estate is a 398-acre parcel located on the southern slope of the Dundee Hills. Pioneering Oregonian and founder Bill Stoller purchased his family’s second-generation farm in 1993 with the vision of cultivating an enduring legacy for the land and Oregon wine industry. Over the last 20 years, he has patiently transformed the property into the largest contiguous vineyard in the Dundee Hills that has become synonymous with producing exceptional wines. Stoller Family Estate features the world’s first LEED Gold–certified winery, three guest homes and a state-of-the-art tasting room with panoramic vineyard views.
