Brooks Vineyard Sunset

Our Vineyards

In addition to our Estate Vineyard, we source fruit (industry-talk for “grapes”) from many different vineyard sites throughout the Willamette Valley and Oregon. This allows us to craft distinctive wines from many different micro-climates and show the true expression of terroir, particularly when it comes to Pinot Noir and Riesling.
