Eola-Amity Hills
Chardonnay

Gary and Nancy Andrus, founders of Pine Ridge Winery in Napa Valley, built this winery’s reputation beginning in 1993. Gary was a Burgundian Pinot Noir fanatic who was an early advocate of Pinot Noir grown in the far reaches of Willamette Valley. His deep-seated passion and innovations brought a new level of recognition to Willamette Valley Pinot Noir.  The Chardonnay program grew on the heals of Pinot Noir. There are 120 acres with five estate vineyards that incorporate organic and biodynamic farming techniques. The pale yellow color of this wine seeks a balance between lush yellow fruits and stone fruits. There are notes of citrus and lemon meringue that fill in the background.
