More About Apolloni Vineyards

Vineyards

The vineyard from is cropped to 1.5 tons to the acre or less. Hand removal of leaves from the vines provide each cluster of grapes the ideal amount of sunlight. The attention to vineyard management extends below the soil; you will never see treated wood posts for vineyard trellises and Apolloni follows the guidelines of the Oregon LIVE sustainable viticulture program.  Although not an organic vineyard they use organic materials whenever possible.

This unique site in the Northern Willamette Valley provides what can be the ideal climate for outstanding Pinot Noir.   The extended growing season and gentle ripening contribute to the characteristics quality and complexity of the wines.  Located on south facing hill sides ranging from 350’ to 500’ of elevation, the East facing Olivia Vineyard produces subtle and floral flavors while the Westerly facing Filippo Vineyard produces larger more intense flavors.  The vineyards are planted predominantly in the Dijon clonal varieties from France, all planted on disease resistant root stocks.  The small berries from these vines contribute to the terrific flavor extraction in these wines.
 

The Coat of Arms

The coat of arms on the label is the Apolloni family crest and is originally from the Arezzo region of Tuscany in Italy dating back to the 15th century.  The family crest was selected as the centerpiece of the label because of the historic family tradition of viticulture and wine making and family commitment to tradition, with full involvement in the vineyard and winemaking.

Apolloni’s first crush was in 2002 with winemaker Alfredo Apolloni working with wine consultant Joe Dobbes for the first few vintages.  In 2004 Apolloni moved to their own winemaking facility near Banks with Alfredo Apolloni as the full-time winemaker.  Production in 2005 was just under 1000 cases, with half of that being exclusively Pinot Noir.
