RIBBON RIDGE WINES
A RICH TRADITION OF FAMILY-RUN VINEYARDS IN EVERY GLASS

The Ribbon Ridge Winegrower’s Association is a non-profit association dedicated to achieving recognition for one of Oregon’s most prestigious Pinot noir producing regions. The Ribbon Ridge American Viticultural Area (AVA) was established on July 1, 2005 and is a sub-AVA within the Willamette Valley. Its early drafters were wine country pioneers, Doug Tunnell, Harry Pederson Nedry and Dewey Kelly who are still members.

“Willamette Valley and its sub-AVAs”.
Part 3/4
.
.
Dundee Hills AVA abuts Yamhill Carlton to the east and sits just south of Chehalem Mountains. This is the oldest planted area in the Willamette and has almost 2,200 acres of planted vines in the 6,500-acre AVA. Dundee Hills is mainly comprised of Basalt lava flows called “Jory” and starts above the 200 ft elevation line where sedimentary soils are minimal. .
.
Wines are known for rich complexity, bright fruit notes, minerality, and silky tannins. Notable producers include domainedrouhinoregon mareshvineyard depontecellars , domaineserene and sokolblosser . .
.
The McMinnville AVA lies South and West of the Yamhill Carlton, running up the eastern slopes of the Coast Range comprising of over 40,000 acres. The soils, rich but shallow, alluvial and marine sedimentary deposits over a base layer of basalt and cooling effect from winds funneled off the Pacific from the south keep the vineyards cool and dry.
.
.
Long hang times affect fruit maturity and wines show well with rich black fruit notes, spice, and earthy flavors. Small blocks are usually vinified separately and sometimes blended into estate wines depending on desired outcomes. Notable producers here are: brittanvineyards , hylandestates , youngberg_hill and maysarawinery .

See you in two days for the last part!

We have just released our 2018 Ribbon Ridge Pinot Noir and it is delicious!
It has serious dark red color and depth, the nose is typical of Ribbon Ridge with floral notes of fresh cherry blossom, mineral notes, cassis and pitted cherry. The flavors of orange and grapefruit zest shows upfront in the mouth, followed by blackberry, peppery fresh berries, fine grained tannins on and elevated finish of chocolate dipped strawberries.
Come and visit us at Domaine Divio to taste it. We are open 7 days a week; 11:00 am - 5:00 pm.

#TBT — At the request of Josh Raynolds from vinousmedia, who hosted an excellent live discussion yesterday with our dynamic father & son duo, we scoured the vaults for some old photos of Michael from the winery’s earliest days. This approximately thirty year old shot captures the young farmer and entrepreneur seated on the throne of the company’s very first forklift, back when the dream was becoming a reality.

Our thanks to Josh for his deep appreciation of the Oregon wine story and willingness to coax some meaningful reflections out of our founding family.

RR wines dream team. Harry Peterson-Nedry and Wynne Peterson-Nedry continually strive to create the best wines they can source from the 120 acre (41 planted) Ridgecrest Vineyards estate, which contains the first vines planted on Ribbon Ridge. They are not designed for a mass market, but for serious aging and for understanding the potential of this special land mass called Ribbon Ridge. ⁠

***Our current lineup***

Currently we are pouring all of our 2017 Pinots and they are showing better than ever.

Our 2017 Cuvée Constantin Pinot is a blend from both of our estate vineyards and a tiny bit of purchased fruit from the Eola-Amity.

The 2017 La Belle Promenade Pinot Noir comes solely from our Chehalem Mountain Estate and is only our second vintage of production!

Finally, the 2017 Flanerie is from our smallest and oldest estate located in the Ribbon Ridge, produced from less than 7 acres of vines planted in 2003.

“Willamette Valley and its sub-AVAs”.
Part 2/4
.
.
Secondly, we have Ribbon Ridge AVA. It began as the southwestern part of Chehalem Mountains but has recently been recognized as a separate AVA. The uniqueness comes from both the shallow layer of uniformly oceanic sedimentary soils called “WillaKenzie” from the nearby Willamette and MacKenzie Rivers at top bedrock sandstone and the protection from weather patterns by the surrounding hills. Consisting of only 3500 acres, with less than 500 acres planted it’s the smallest AVA in the valley. .
.
Ribbon Ridge Pinot Noirs are smooth and supple with excellent balance of spice and elegant floral notes without the more acidic punch from many of its neighbors. Notable producers here are beauxfreres , patriciagreencellars , domainedivio , ayresvineyard , and trisaetum_winery . .
.
Yamhill-Carlton is nestled between the coastal range to the West and the Chehalem Mountains to the Northeast. The AVA is defined by a u-shaped series of hills and the Yamhill River running thru an area of over 60,000 acres with 1,200 acres of vineyards. Sitting in the rain shadow of the coastal range and the well-draining marine sedimentary soils are the keys to the wines. Vines stop shooting here earlier than elsewhere in the valley leaving more time for ripening.
.
.
The wines have silky integrated tannins with dark fruit notes, tobacco and coffee with floral overtones and medium acid. .
.
Notable producers are: kwcellars , willakenzie , wildairecellars and soterwines . .

2017 Trisaetum - Ribbon Ridge Estate Dry Riesling (88 pts) ·
·
🙋‍♂️ What is your favorite new world Riesling❓·
·
ℹ️ This wine is 💯 Riesling that is estate grown in the Ribbon Ridge AVA, Oregon. Ribbon Ridge AVA is the smallest AVA in Oregon that is defined by a unique high quartz marine sedimentary soil. Ribbon Ridge Estate is a 46 acre site, but only 17 acres are planted. Of the 17 acres, 2 acres are dedicated to Riesling. This is the warmest of the 3 estate vineyards owned by Trisaetum. The vineyard is sustainably and dry-farmed in alignment with their Stewardship Statement. Fermentations took place in a variety of vessels - 70% neutral oak casks, 20% in steel barrels, and 10% in concrete eggs. There was a total of 89 different ferments 😮. All used native years and then spent 6 months in barrel on fine lees·
·
👁 Pale lemon color·
·
👃 Medium intensity on the nose. Aromas of green apple, nectarine, peach skin, lime blossom, acacia, lemon curd, lemon pith, yogurt, and wet rock·
·
👄 The wine is dry, medium+ acidity, medium alcohol, and medium body. A medium length finish of nectarine, lime blossom, and a slight saltiness·
·
🔔 I was excited to try a Riesling from Trisaetum because they are often critically acclaimed and this was my first one. My initial impression is that this didn't have the typical high acidity that most Rieslings have, it was still medium+ though. Additionally, it had more weight than I was expecting. This is solid and I think I need to taste more Ribbon Ridge Rieslings to form an opinion if it has telltale distinctions that clearly differentiate it against other regions. It's always hard not compare any Riesling to those from Germany.

The pre-Thanksgiving winery open houses certainly lived up to the hype yesterday! I feel like I need to train for that better next year. 😂 We were ambitious and stopped by:⁣⁣
⁣⁣
alexanawinery where the GSM was our favorite of the day - surprising for me! Paired with chocolate truffles put it over the top. ⁣🍷⁣
⁣⁣
coleneclemens for the most amazing spread of food. Tasting the 2011 Victoria was a real treat as well as the 2016 Max.⁣ 🥧🦀⁣
⁣⁣
domainedivio for the release of the latest Toison D'Or Pinot Noir - the best of the best barrels selected by their winemaker, Bruno. Also pre-ordered their new bubbles that will be released in just a couple of weeks. 🎉⁣
⁣⁣
hazelferncellars was last but certainly not least! Everything we tasted was stunning from their winter rosé to the release of Noir and everything in-between. The overall experience and vibe here are always something special. ♥️ ⁣

I also got to meet IG friend, westcoastwineguy, while out - a pleasure meeting and talking with you! 😃⁣
⁣⁣
Did you do any winery visits this weekend? If so, tell me where! ⁣⬇️⁣

“Willamette Valley and its sub-AVAs”.
Part 4/4
.
.
Furthest South and East is the Eola-Amity Hills AVA consisting of 40,000 acres with 2,800 planted acres. Tilted layers of rocky volcanic basalt and sedimentary sandstone that are well drained and cool breezes from the Van Duzer Corridor keep acids high and concentrate flavors in the wines. .
.
Eola-Amity Pinots are known for the intense black pepper notes with high acid, concentrated fruit notes and a strong tannic structure. Notable producers in Eola-Amity are: linguafrancawines , walterscottwines , evening_land , faillawinesoregon , bethelheightsvineyard , brynmawrvineyards and brookswinery .
.
.
The newest AVA, as of 2019, is the Van Duzer Corridor directly to the west of Eola-Amity. This area, similar to the Petaluma Gap in California, funnels cool air in from the Pacific to dry and cool the vines during the summers and temper the cold in the spring and fall.
.
.
Almost 60,000 acres in area with only 1,000 acres planted the AVA boasts consistent high-quality grapes with thicker skins for fuller body and more tannic structure. The first six Van Duzer producers are: vanduzervineyards , johanvineyards andantevineyard firesteedwinery , chateaubiancawinery and leftcoastwine . .
.
And that’s all from Oregon, see you next time!

Wild blueberry, pine needle, tart dark cherry. Orange zest, turned earth, crunchy boysenberry. Snappy cranberry, black raspberry, and pomegranate highlight a gorgeously delicate and aromatic fruit core intricately complicated by evergreen, lavender oil, and forest floor. Beautiful organic tones of tree bark, tea leaf, and baby bella mushroom enhance the ethereal and expansive attack offset by notes of violets and blooming red rose. Cardamom and nutmeg converge with a pinch of allspice to provide additional layers of complexity as damp earth reveals one final tribute to terroir. Precise, lively, and perfectly balanced; exhibiting flawless typicity and wonderful restraint within its delightfully serious yet unintimidating profile. Medium in body with elevated tannin and bright acidity. This 2017 "Perspective" Ribbon Ridge Pinot Noir by Ayres Vineyard is an impressively elegant, classic, and delicious red from the Willamette Valley.
.
Located in the northwestern corner of Oregon's Willamette Valley just southwest of Portland, Ribbon Ridge is a unique sub-appellation famous for producing darker-fruited Pinot Noir that expresses beautiful earth and spice characteristics. This bottling, crafted by Ayres Vineyard using Pinot Noir sourced from within Ribbon Ridge, spectacularly exemplifies the distinct personality of this region. While it contains no shortage of fresh and energetic berry fruit this wine manages to remain impressively delicate, conjuring just as much of its complexity through tones of soil, nature, and spice as from its fruit. This is an extremely balanced and delicious offering that punches well above its modest weight. Excellent.

Let’s raise a glass to Friday, shall we?! ⠀⠀
This weekend is going to be a busy one in the Willamette Valley, jam-packed with tons of fun Pre-Thanksgiving events and opportunities to stock up on wine for the holidays. I’m having a hard time narrowing down the list of events I want to attend, though these are my top contenders:
⠀⠀
• Flâneur Thanksgiving Wines, Saturday & Sunday 11-4 at the Grain Elevator. Flâneur will be pouring their ‘16 Couvee Constantin Pinot Noir (and others), which was named one of the best wines for Thanksgiving by foodandwine Magazine. Entry is $30, or complimentary for club members.
⠀⠀
• Beauxfreres Pre-Thanksgiving Open House, Saturday from 10 to 3. This annual event is a rare opportunity to drop in to the normally by appointment only winery, and one of the only times that you can also taste sequiturwine & coattailswine at Beaux Fréres. $25, complimentary for club members.
⠀⠀
• delancellottiwines Pre-Thanksgiving Open House Friday & Saturday 11-4, pouring new releases. $30, free for club members.
⠀⠀
• hundredsunswine Fall Tasting, Saturday 12-3 at their winery - Gamay, Grenache, and hats!
⠀⠀

Barely-ripe raspberry, crushed rock, raw cranberry. Crisp watermelon, rosemary sprig, juicy white peach. Vibrant and zippy bursts of tart strawberry, underripe pomegranate, yellow cherry, and grapefruit zest highlight a crisp and surprisingly complex fruit core intricately embellished with hints of citrus blossom, pine needle, and pink sea salt. Delicate floral notes of jasmine, rose petal, and lavender emerge within wafts of dainty perfume that intertwines with fresh thyme in a lightly herbal twist. Subtle forest tones of evergreen and fallen leaves reveal a streak of mild organic charm while fresh salinity and stony minerals impart persistent blasts of remarkably clean earthiness. Elegant and expressive on the nose while remaining bright and focused on the palate; exhibiting crystalline purity and a uniquely mineral texture that is simultaneously thirst quenching and intriguing. Medium in body and perfectly balanced by near-electric high acidity. This 2018 Estate Rosé of Pinot Noir by Ayres Vineyard & Winery is a terrifically layered, energetic, and serious rosé from Oregon's Ribbon Ridge. 

Although the Willamette Valley's tiny sub-appellation of Ribbon Ridge is known for producing tremendously ethereal and expressive Pinot Noir, this small but mighty region is also the home of some unquestionably impressive rosé. This bottling, crafted by Ayres Vineyard & Winery using Pinot Noir grown on their Ribbon Ridge estate, showcases an excitingly distinct and delicious take on classically-styled rosé. While certainly fresh, delicate, and refreshing this wine contains a cornucopia of wonderfully delineated fruit that marries incredible complexity and crispness. Its floral, forest, and herbal notes are particularly notable and combine with textured minerality to provide a special drinking experience. Outstanding.
