Argyle Winery's Primary Vineyard
Dundee Hills AVA, Willamette Valley, Oregon
Argyle's primary vineyard source since 1987 is the 120 acre Knudsen Vineyards, located in the heart of the red hills of Dundee, Oregon. Half the vineyard was planted in the early 1970s. These "historic" vines produce distinctive wines with ripe fruit flavors and earthy, spicy old vine character. The other, "younger" half of the vineyard features state-of-the-art viticulture: Old World clones planted in high density blocks on warm sites. Pinot fruit from these blocks offers up unique aromas of black cherry leading into ripe raspberry concentrate.
Argyle's finest sparkling wine fruit is grown in Knudsen's high-elevation blocks (above 700 feet) where ripening occurs at the end of the growing season.
