Nestled in the beautiful Yamhill-Carlton AVA district of the Willamette Valley lies Lenné Estate Vineyards. This gorgeous estate is made up of 20.9 acres of amazing Pinot Noir grapes. We had the pleasure of visiting this vineyard on our last trip to Oregon and are so glad that we didn’t miss it.
The panoramic views of Lenné Estate are picturesque and feature rolling hills and elevations of up to 575 feet. The “old world feel” two-story stone tasting room is surrounded by the beautiful vines and actually “poor soil”. According to the friendly and well-educated staff the poor soil makes for smaller berries, which yields more concentrated juice. The Pinots produced are high quality with complex flavors of mocha, cherry, and chocolate.
The tasting room features a second story private patio for members only. Not only do you get to taste exceptional wine, but the views also make it all the better. Make sure to try the 2016 Kill Hill Pinot Noir or the 2016 Cinq Èlus Pinot Noir. Both are personal favorites.
Lennè offers two different tastings, Standard Flight ($15 waived with a $5o purchase) and Reserve Flight ($25 waived with a $75 purchase). They also offer a Vineyard Tour and Blind Tasting Events throughout the year (by reservation only). They are open 12-5pm seven days a week.
