Yamhill VINEYARDS

Yamhill-Carlton AVA. 1984/85-planted Wente selection Chardonnay vines grow on own roots in sandy, marine sediment WillaKenzie soils at 400-500' and face due south. Planted in two, non-irrigated blocks, the lower, larger section is impacted more by phylloxera than the smaller, upper section. Starting at the end of 2014, farmer Ralph Stein began vine by vine replanting with vineyard selected Wente on rootstock. The vineyard is farmed sustainably by Ralph and his son, Chris.
