2017 Lady Hill Riesling, Champoeg Vineyard
Champoeg Vineyard, or “La Butte” as it was named by the early settlers, was first planted to vinifera by the Mathiot Family in 1858. By 1880, the surrounding area of Butteville was referred to by the Farm census as the wine capital of the Oregon Territory. Today, the vineyard is home to roughly 22 acres of Chardonnay, Pinot Gris, Pinot Noir and Riesling terraced on a steep southeast facing slope. Planted in 1974, these Riesling vines are considered some of the oldest in the state producing only a select few concentrated clusters per plant.
