Brooks has it all — Great story, great people, great wines.

Dave McIntyre, Washington Post
This dry muscat packs a serious aromatic punch with bright citrus, stone fruit and floral notes with zippy, food-friendly acidity. Pair with a hot, sunny day and good friends.

Enjoy this wine with a pear and blue cheese salad, add gem greens, spice roasted hazelnuts and an apple cider vinaigrette to finish it off!
Norma Buchholz
Chef
This wine is a blend of Early and Orange Muscat grown in the Eola-Amity Hills. Deliciously aromatic, the nose explodes with kumquat, orange blossom and peach syrup. On the palate this wine is refreshing with a linear drive rounded out by tangerine, lychee and Meyer lemon concentrate.

Winemaking Notes

A wet, but warm spring with a few mild frosts during late April and fewer than average heat spikes. Near-record precipitation amounts during late June and early July brought increased disease pressure to the region. The vintage will be remembered for the early rains in September and rapid cool down into October which challenged harvesting decisions. The cool vintage came largely from substantially lower maximum temperatures while minimum temperatures were near average to slightly above average. A classic Oregon vintage!
