This barrel selection, BW# 21003, is named for our bonded winery permit number and is the realization of a dream conceived in 1985 by Pattie and Mark Bjornson. This wine is a “field blend” of our producing Pinot Noir clones (Dijon Clones 115-10%, 667-5%, 777-20%, Pommard-45%, and Wadensvil-20%).
Bjornson Vineyard is part of a scenic 107-acre farm, located in the heart of Oregon’s Eola-Amity Hills. The vineyard is planted with 28 acres of vines on volcanic soils (Jory/Nekia) ranging in elevation from 450-550 feet.
Our priorities are simple: care for the land, make exceptional wine, and enjoy life’s journey. We support these goals by generating renewable energy, and farming sustainably to protect the ecosystem in the vineyard, surrounding creeks, and woodlands. In 2014, the grapes were harvested on September 22, and the wine was aged in French oak before bottling.
