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

Dave McIntyre, Washington Post
Rich and luscious on the palate, this Pinot Gris offers up bright notes of citrus, stone fruits, and white flowers with a long, beeswax and oyster shell finish.

Enjoy this bright wine with a coconut & passionfruit cake, a soft whipped cream cheese frosting and candied kumquats!

Chef
Fermented in a 900 gallon wooden cask to round out the mid-palate and balance natural acidity, this wine displays aromas of white nectarine, peach blossom and subtle spice. On the palate, Meyer lemon and golden apple shine, with generous weight and a briney finish.

Winemaking Notes

Rain events at the beginning of bloom diminished yields, and a dry summer was punctuated with unprecedented heatwaves. The timing worked in our favor since the heat happened pre-veraison, and the vines handled it well. Harvest started in early September, but lower temperatures across the state allowed for a long and measured harvest season, with harvest extending into mid-October. No disease, high sugars, balanced acids, and great flavors. 2021 will undoubtedly rank as one of the top Oregon vintages.
