Prospecting the New World’s coolest latitudes, Brian Croser and Rollin Soles staked a claim in Oregon’s Willamette Valley, a place ideal for late season ripened Pinot Noir and Chardonnay fruit. Since 1987, Argyle Winery has produced world-class methode champenoise Sparkling wine, barrel fermented Chardonnay and ’silky’ textured Pinot Noir from low yielding vines on winery farmed hillside slopes. Argyle was named ”OREGON’S PREMIER WINERY” by Wine Spectator in 2000. Argyle farms three vineyards: Knudsen Vineyard, Lone Star Vineyard and Spirit Hill Vineyard. The 120 acre Knudsen Vineyard was first planted between 1972 & 1974. The high elevation blocks of this landmark Dundee Hills site are key components in Argyle’s sparkling wines. Knudsen provides Argyle a mix of old vine blocks and new high density blocks planted with ”Old World” Dijon clones. In 1996 Argyle purchased a spectacular 160 acre vineyard site in the east slopes of Eola Hills, known as Lone Star Vineyard. Located 15 miles south of Argyle’s winery in Dundee, this warm site is planted primarily to Dijon clones of Pinot Noir. This vineyard has the potential to be one of Oregon’s best Pinot Noir vineyards. Our newest and largest vineyard, Spirit Hill was purchased in 2007 and has 135 acres planted. This high-elevation site in the gusty Van Duzer corridor of the Eola-Amity Hills AVA is ideal for our sparkling wine varietals.

Critical Acclaim

Wine Spectator 91 - Light and delicate, with a minty-floral edge to the raspberry, strawberry and green tea flavors, coming together harmoniously. Gains momentum and persistence on the finish. Drink now through 2020. 850 cases made.
