More About Evening Land Vineyards
The name Evening Land Vineyards was inspired by the irresistible lure of Homer's ideal garden. A wedding gift to Zeus, the Gardens of the Evening Land bear witness to the eternal magic of the perfect orchard located just beyond reach and under the golden glow of the Evening's setting sun.
Evening Land Vineyards produces estate grown pinot noir from vineyards in three acclaimed terroirs: The Sonoma Coast, Santa Rita Hills, and the Eola Hills of the Willamette Valley.
After acquiring the storied California Occidental Vineyard in 2005, Evening Land added Oregon's Seven Springs Vineyard to its portfolio in 2007. A third vineyard on the westernmost edge of the Santa Rita Hills is under development.
Talk to Evening Land owner Mark Tarlov about wine and he'll reference ideas from quantum mechanics to Greek mythology to the nature of infinity. He uses the tension of opposites and the idea that there is no finality in complexity to describe the experience of tasting good Pinots. He compares them to Cabernet, which he dismisses as a black and white, on and off kind of wine that is easily understood. In so many ways, Mark is leading Evening Land in new directions, expanding the meaning of Oregon Pinot noir and bringing it to new markets.
