The subtle offerings of this wine accentuate the complexities that make Oregon Pinot Noir a world renowned classic and stand out, arguably impossible to duplicate anywhere beyond the Pacific Northwest State. Almost all of the grapes were grown in two separate vineyards around the Dundee areas. There was another flatlander vineyard around Salem and another small portion of the grapes grown in a smaller vineyard in McMinville area. The Tangley Oaks Willamette Valley Pinot Noir is strictly engaged in the sustainability traditions that are so important to the Oregon way of grape growing.
