A Tribute to Burgundy Roots

At a mere 2 acres, the Winery Block stands as our smallest estate vineyard, yet it possesses unparalleled power and rarity. Planted with over 5,000 vines per acre—more than double the density of most Oregon sites. Inspired by our deep Burgundian connections, the Winery Block pays homage to our Burgundy ties. This vineyard’s tight formation serves as a tribute to Caroline’s homeland and Josh’s education.

Hand-Tended with Love

Due to this vineyard’s size and density, Winery Block must be farmed entirely by hand. Meticulous canopy management, pruning, hedging, and vine treatment are paramount to success at this site.

Pinot Noir: Aromatically Explosive

Winery Block Pinot Noir explodes with sweet baking spices, Chinese five spice, rare woods, incense, and lasting notes of black licorice and gingerbread. Its sturdy structure, ample ripe tannins, and balanced acidity ensure ideal cellar aging.

Chardonnay: Intensity for Sigrid

The unique farming at Winery Block contributes Chardonnay with an essential and captivating intensity to every vintage of Sigrid.
