Evening Land Wines

Wine Spectator's killer scores for Evening Land Vineyards wines plus great fruit from one of Oregon's most respected vineyards, Evening Lands' Seven Springs, has everyone smiling.

Evening Land Vineyards' consulting winemaker is the world famous French winemaker Dominique Lafon.

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.

More About Evening Land Vineyards

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.

Evening Land Vineyards grows estate pinot noir from several highly acclaimed terriors: the Sonoma Coast (the Carl Myers Vineyard and the Occidental Vineyard), Santa Rita Hills (Looking Glass Vineyard in Santa Barbara County) and in the Willamette Valley of Oregon (Seven Springs Vineyard in the Eola Hills).

Dominique Lafon in Oregon A European Superstar for Evening Land Vineyards

Well known for his beautifully-crafted Chardonnay, Lafon says he has been making more than 100 barrels of red wine for more than 20 years in the Volnay and Monthélie regions. Lafon owns 36 acres from which he makes Mâcon under the Les Heritiers des Comtes Lafon label.

“I believe in the spirit of the Côte de Beaune—it is in me,” said Lafon, who has managed his family’s estate, Domaine des Comtes Lafon in Meursault since 1987. “With Seven Springs, we work with the land and the soils in the traditional way, looking to create the right balance in the glass.”

In addition to Pinot Noir, Evening Land Vineyards produces small lots of Gamay Noir made from a three-acre plot on Seven Springs, and a Chardonnay (on four acres) that showcases Lafon’s talent for bringing out a beautiful flavors, acid balance and soft mouthfeel of the varietal. Wine industry insiders believe his take on Oregon Chardonnay could change opinions about the less-than-journeyman status of Oregon Chardonnay—and he is willing to share his techniques and ideas with other Oregon winemakers, often joining tasting groups when he is in town.
