Planted in 1995, Stoller sits on a 399-acre parcel, with 210-acres planted to vine, making it the largest contiguous vineyard in Oregon’s Dundee Hills.
Stoller Vineyard is planted on Jory soil, a fertile and well-drained red soil that has come to define the Dundee Hills. Tightly spaces vines are planted at elevations ranging from 220 to 640 feet. The surrounding mountain ranges buffer the vineyard, creating a warmer microclimate that ensures consistent ripening.
Characteristics of Pinot noir from Jory soil are bright red fruits, earth, tobacco, and spice – very much in a Volnay or Pommard style. Our first commercial release from Stoller Vineyard was in 1997.
Roughly 62 percent of the vineyard is planted to Pinot noir, 26 percent to Chardonnay, with 12 percent planted to other varieties such as Pinot Blanc, Riesling, Syrah and Tempranillo.
