More About Coleman Vineyard
The vineyard is close to the Van Duzer corridor,
an opening through the Coast Range mountains to the Oregon coast, providing
hot summer days with afternoon winds cooling the evening temperatures significantly.
We believe this temperature variation, along with the volcanic soils, contribute
to the phenolic characteristics and brightness of the wine, providing a
structure for aging and signature dark cherry, intense color and flavors.
Because of these unique influences, the coastal foothills of McMinnville
has become a new appellation in the Willamette Valley, known
as the 'McMinnville Appellation'.
