Stepping onto the Privé Estate is like stepping onto a hillside vineyard in Burgundy. In keeping with our passion for Burgundian Pinot Noir that originally inspired the conception of Privé, we focus on minimal intervention so that the wines can reflect their terroir, giving them a distinct sense of place. The basaltic Jory soil is known for producing red-fruited, earthy, balanced wines.
The West Wind Vineyard, within the Ribbon Ridge AVA, is a bit more reminiscent of the Oregon Coast. A beautiful vista welcomes you to the windy knob along the ridge that is planted with 777, 115, Wädenswil, and Pommard clones. These clones love the beautiful marine soil and the western winds that cool the site down during the growing season.
