Viticulture

Seven small vineyards located in the heart of the Willamette Valley. Many of the vineyards are over 20 years old and all dry farmed. Soil types are mostly Alluvial Soil (a fine-grained fertile soil deposited by water flowing over flood plains) and Bellpine series(consists of moderately deep, well drained soils that formed in colluvium and residuum derived from sedimentary rocks). Pinot Noir clones include: Pommard, W├Ądenswil,115, 777 and 667. The vineyards average about 2.25 tons per acre.

Tasting Note

Compton Family Wines garden series is a reflection of our families believes in growing what we eat and doing our best to represent a true sustainable farm to table lifestyle. Our Garden series wines reflects these beliefs. Moderately light garnet color in the glass with aromas of cherry, strawberry, rose petal, and sandalwood. Light to mid weight in style, with a generous black cherry core of fruit that shows good vigor and intensity.
