Le Cadeau is a small, 10 acre vineyard on the southern slopes of Parrett Mountain in the North Willamette Valley. Owners Tom and Deb Mortimer took a blackberry bramble and created a premium Pinot noir vineyard, drilling into rocky soil and planting a range of Pinot noir clones for maximum quality and complexity.
Le Cadeau contracts with Francis-Tannahill, Chehalem, and Bergstrom Wineries. The owners of those wineries made three Pinot noirs for Le Cadeau in 2004, 2005, 2006, and 2007.
Le Cadeau also operates Aubichon Cellars, their second label. About 350 cases are made by this off-shoot of Le Cadeau. Aubichon is a partnership that grew from Le Cadeau Winery. Winemaker Jim Sanders, who made our favorite 2007 Le Cadeau Pinot - Equinoxe - partners with the Mortimers (Le Cadeau). Sanders learned his winemaking from Mike Etzel at Beaux Freres.
