Our Vineyards > Fact Sheets > Stoller

Stoller VineyardsStoller Vineyards is our newest, and therefore most viticulturally advanced, of our three estate vineyards. A south-sloping, 175-acre vineyard on a 373-acre parcel, Stoller Vineyards commands a dominating view of the southern end of the Red Hills of Dundee.

Stoller Vineyards is planted to jory soil, with a touch of Nekia, which are both red volcanic soil types. Jory is moderate to deep in soil depth and water retention, with moderate to rich fertility. A warm site, it is early ripening and, with dense plantings, requires irrigation.

Wine characteristics in Pinot noir for Jory and Nekia soils are straight-down-the-middle red to black cherry fruits with round, soft flavors, very much in a Volnay or Pommard style, with intense offerings bordering on earth and chocolate overtones. Our first commercial release from Stoller Vineyards was in 1997.

They are christening a small, exclusive winery on their estate in 2005 to make small amounts of a Stoller Vineyards brand Pinot noir and Chardonnay.
