Vireton is named for a style of crossbow arrow with feathers placed at an angle to make it spin in flight, improving its accuracy. Vireton wines express our unwavering commitment to exploration and excellence. As in archery, making great Pinot Noir requires finesse, attention to detail and finely tuned instincts.
A bountiful wine, the Vireton bursts with familiar fragrances and lasting flavor. Abundant spice dominates the nose with lush, ripe raspberries and dark chocolate. On the palate, there are generous notes of earth, caramel, and chocolate. The wine is equally giving on the tail end, delivering juicy red fruit backed by a light but balancing acidity. It all combines to offer a lengthy, memorable finish.

Wildly approachable, the Vireton Pinot Gris touts bright citrus notes, a clean minerality, and a playful acidity. Dried flowers and citrus zest fill out the nose while the palate reminds of fresh pear, kiwi, and lime. The Willamette Valley has a longstanding reputation for turning out dry yet character-driven Pinot Gris and this wine echoes that movement.
