Guided by Good
We focus on what matters and remind ourselves that wine is to be celebrated.
We saw an occasion to farm the land responsibly and sustainably into the next generation, while also harnessing age old winemaking principles to craft high quality, minimal intervention wines that appeal today. Angela is evolving the conversation about the way we experience and connect with wine. Wine as it was meant to be celebrated, as an essential part of life.
In Good Hands
In the vineyard, our commitment to sustainability for future generations guides us. Viticulturist Heath Payne is dedicated to regenerative farming using an organic and biodynamic farm program, eliminating all herbicides, and expanding the species of plants grown to support polyculture and native habitats and species. We source grapes from our estate vineyard in the Yamhill-Carlton AVA and neighboring vineyards within the AVA and Willamette Valley whose farming commitments mirror our own.
Low Intervention Winemaking
Our winemaker Alban Debeaulieu is guided first by what the vineyard provides, handling each vintage with a light touch and gentle coaxing to bring out the purity and individuality inherent in each wine. The grapes are hand harvested, carefully sorted either by whole berry or whole cluster, and encouraged into fermentation naturally, with the help of native yeasts and gentle extraction methods. Our wines see time in barrel, lending structure and gravitas, and are unfined and loosely filtered as the vintage allows to preserve expression and elegance. This minimal intervention philosophy in the cellar honors the nurturing that has taken place in the vineyard.
