Pinot Noir, a delicate and temperamental grape, requires very specific site attributes. The topography and climate of Willamette Valley offers ideal growing conditions for the varietal, and more specifically, our winery location in Dundee Hills was chosen because we felt it presented the best combination of soil, slope and climate. Archery Summit implements organic farming practices, including a biodynamic approach at the Renegade Ridge Estate vineyard. Vines are densely planted to produce smaller berries and yields are kept extremely low. Because each of our six vineyards is different, we adapt our vineyard practices to suit each individual site. Additionally, our vineyards are planted to a wide selection of clones to produce a broad range of flavors from which to blend, and rootstock-to-clone combinations are continuously undergoing trials to best match plants to specific site requirements in order to create the most complex wines possible.
