A Blooming Hill Vineyard & Winery

A Blooming Hill Vineyard

About

Some days, standing at a particular spot in the vineyard where the light spills across the slope of Blooming Hill, it is possible to believe the world has just begun and life is full of promise. The soft sound of a breeze rustling the vines, the warm touch of sun on emerging fruit, sky as far off as anyone can see beyond the hills reminds us that there may be nothing quite so wonderful as the simple pleasures given us by nature. At A Blooming Hill Vineyard, we revel in the gift of working the land every day and that we are rewarded with its simple and elegant bounty.

Location Description

Practices & Techniques

VINEYARD NOTES – Our vineyard is on a southeast-facing slope in the last hills of the Chehalem Mountain range. Each vine is nestled in windblown, volcanic soil anchored to this basalt range with depths of six to twelve feet. This rich soil produces grapes lavish in the tastes of the earth and its surrounding micro- climate. Each vine is coaxed by hand to produce full, compact clusters.

In this unusual microclimate, the 480 foot elevation is protected by higher hills on three sides from any coastal storms or harsh weather changes. The sun warms the grapes throughout the day producing the sugars and flavors into the peak of the afternoon. The grapes are then cooled by the late afternoon and evening ocean breezes that fan down the Columbia River, skirting the coastal range into this, the northern Willamette Valley. This daily cycle is repeated throughout the fall until the grapes are picked at their peak of ripeness.

Awards

The 2012 Pinot Noir has won a Silver medal in the New York International Wine Competition. We are very pleased as we believe this is an excellent wine. Over 1000 wins were tasted and less than 30% won medals. There were fourteen Pinot Noirs that won a Silver (none won Gold) and we were one of four from Oregon.

Our 2011 Pinot Noir has won two wonderful awards – a Double Gold in the Oregon Wine Awards and a Gold in the Northwest Food and Wine Festival!
