Introducing our Growers Series
A special release to celebrate our 50th year in the Dundee Hills of the Willamette Valley.
Since Army Colonel and retired neurosurgeon Dr. Donald Olson purchased the property in the late 1980s from the McDaniel family, he has continued the themes of connection to the earth, collaboration with the community, modern zen simplicity in landscape and hardscape, and evolved resiliently with the vineyard to mark its 50th year in 2022! Torii Mor's Olson vineyard is one of the first commercial vineyards in the state and was planted with clones from Dick Erath, David Lett, Charles Coury and Jim Maresh. It is also the host of a who's who of winemakers including industry standouts Patricia Green, Joe Dobbes, Ryan Harms, Jacques Tardy and currently Jon Tomaselli.
Dr. Olson created these limited release wines to honor the legacy of past Dundee Hills vintners. It is their enthusiastic contribution mixed with the current industry players who continue to deliver traits of resilience, innovation, ingenuity and an effusive ability to tell a good story based on world-class Pinot Noir and Oregon grapes grown in Jory soil.
Winemakers Jon Tomaselli and Jacques Tardy carefully produced limited release wines of elegance, balance, and intention, utilizing our Olson Estate Vineyard grapes in the in the premier Dundee Hills AVA.
