Our Castle Rock Pinot Noir is produced from grapes grown in Oregon’s Willamette Valley. Sheltered by the
Cascade Mountains, this area is on the same latitude as France’s Burgundy region, and in the past thirty years it has gained international recognition as one of the most prestigious appellations for this cool climate varietal. This elegant medium-bodied wine offers aromas of cherry and spice. On the palate the wine give flavors of berries,
cinnamon, black cherry, sweet vanilla oak and floral notes, with a long velvety finish. This versatile wine pairs well with lamb, chicken, veal, salmon and light pasta dishes.
Since its inception in 1994, Castle Rock Winery has built an enviable reputation for producing high quality wines at affordable prices. This winning formula has been highly successful, as proven by an increasing number of customers and members of the wine press who have given the wines glowing reviews.
Castle Rock buys grapes from approximately 40 grape growers, all renowned for their expertise and consistency. In each case, vineyard practices are carried out under the guidance and instruction of Castle Rock’s winemaker, August Briggs, all to ensure that quality standards are maintained from start to finish.
After the harvest, the wines are made in accordance with Castle Rock’s winemaking standards, and are bottled at wineries, boasting state-of-the-art equipment, located in Napa Valley, Sonoma County, Oregon’s Willamette Valley, and Washington’s Columbia Valley.
