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.
This barrel selection honors Pattie’s grandfather Edward, a reserved but intense man, with a strong work ethic reflecting his Midwestern heritage.
