Siltstone Wine's Siltstone Pinot noir offers wine lovers a rare opportunity to enjoy Pinot from the very special Guadalupe Vineyard. The grapes from Guadalupe make big, balanced wines, full of dark fruit flavors, but well balanced, with layered, intricate flavors.
Joel and Louise Myers are owners of Siltstone Wines, a small, family run winery that produced its first vintage in 2000. Joel began working in vineyards as early as 1968 and is an experienced vineyard manager and grower of premium fruit. Since 1984 he has run Vinetenders, a vineyard management company that manages approximately 250 acres of exceptional vineyard territory in North Willamette Valley, Oregon.
More About Siltstone Wines
Joel welcomed the opportunity to produce wine under his own label. All Siltstone Wines are labeled as a “Vinetenders Selection” which, like a winemakers reserve or barrel select designation, indicates Joel’s deep commitment to actively participating in all levels of wine production from the vineyard to the bottle.
The fruit for Siltstone Wines is sourced from the Guadalupe Vineyard located in Yamhill County. The 40 acre property is one of the oldest orchard sites in the area. Grapes were first planted in 1988 and Joel has been managing the land since the beginning, assisting in the design, planting, and management. Additionally, Joel manages vineyards for Domaine Serene, Soter Vineyards, Penner-Ash, and Two Barns.
