The Wine

We have a simple belief that the land is the most important factor to producing an expressive wine. We treat it with kid gloves. We dry farm allowing the vines to send their roots deep for water, extracting intense flavors from our Laurelwood soil and underlying volcanic basalt. We use organic farming practices to keep nature in balance closer to the surface. Means more work for us. But we think it shows in the quality of the wine.

2016 Benza Willamette Valley Pinot Noir

A wine made with intent. Sourced from mature vines in three prime sub-AVA’s of the Willamette Valley: McMinnville, Yamhill-Carlton and Chehalem Mountains. Aged for 10 months in both once-filled & neutral French oak barrels to make a wine that's both approachable yet intricate.

Drinking beautifully right now but will gain complexity as it ages. Difficulty is keeping it as it goes so well with chicken, pork and salmon. Only 120 cases produced.

2017 Benza Estate Pinot Gris

Picked from a superb corner of the estate by the owners, this Pinot Gris was fermented in stainless steel and neutral oak to coax out its latent liveliness and freshness.

A medium-bodied wine, it has more lusher flavors with a note of apricot, balanced by the wine's natural acidity. The ultimate salmon wine, it pairs well with chicken too. Perfectly ready to drink now. Only 90 cases produced.
