Spirit Hill Vineyard

Spirit Hill Vineyard


Argyle’s Largest and Newest Vineyard
Eola-Amity Hills AVA, Willamette Valley, Oregon


In 2007, Argyle purchased Spirit Hill Vineyard in the Eola-Amity Hills AVA, adjacent to Temperance Hill, and approximately 12 miles north and a little west of Salem, Oregon. A total of 180 acres, it is now Argyle’s largest vineyard, with 130 acres planted to Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Pinot Meunier.

Spirit Hill sits on top of the Eola-Amity Hills at 700 - 800 ft. elevation and is shaped like an open bowl, with aspects in every direction. This elevation, in combination with Van Duzer corridor’s gusty winds has made Spirit Hill Vineyard a very cool climate growing site. It is ideal for Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Pinot Meunier – the varietals for Argyle’s Méthode Champenoise sparkling wines.

In the northwest corner of the vineyard, tucked away in the trees, is an old pioneer cemetery, from which has inspired the vineyard’s ghostly name. The blocks adjacent to the cemetery are the site’s warmest, being east facing and protected from the wind. It is here where we have crafted the first ever Spirit Hill Vineyard Pinot Noir – the 2012 vintage.

As we tend this special land over the coming years, we are eager to learn how it will reveal its unique terror, which is already revealing juice with deep complexity and firm tannic structure.
