Kudos to you,
Our winemaking goal is to grow and make a product that is truly representative of the fruit we grow and the land from which we farm.
There are so many factors that come into play that make the wines we make special and unique to Oregon. We’re working off a wide range of soils (basalt, sedimentary, alluvial), elevations ranging from sea level all the way up to 750 ft above and vineyard sites across the valley. We age our wine in dozens of barrels, mixing Stainless steel with New French Oak, Neutral barrels, and everything in between.

Hyland Vineyard Pinot Noir
2019 – 91 pts | Wine Enthusiast
2016 – 93 pts | James Suckling
A collection of over a dozen distinct blocks ranging from 350 to 750 elevation go into this elegant bottling of Pinot Noir. All fruit hails from the legendary Hyland Vineyard in the McMinnville Foothills of Oregon, aided by long, dry summer days in the sun and breezy coastal nights where temperatures can drop as much as 40 degrees from dusk to midnight. The vineyard is one of the oldest in the valley, with the original plantings dating back to 1971.
Willamette Valley Riesling
2021 – 91 pts | James Suckling
2019 – 90 pts | Best Buy | Wine Enthusiast
While Pinot Noirs account for much of the rage in the Willamette Valley, the stock of aromatic white wines is increasingly on the rise. The Kudos Riesling is the type of wine that can really surprise you.
Willamette Valley Chardonnay
2020 – 90 pts | Wine Enthusiast
What makes this wine so special is that it’s a true expression of small-lot Chardonnay in the Willamette Valley. It’s not mass-produced, it’s something that we make less than 200 cases of to really focus on bringing the best possible blend we can make.
