Willamette Valley Vineyards
also offers wines under the labels
The largest winery in Oregon, WVV offers a huge range of wines from several different wineries in categories from basic table wine to exceptional single vineyard wines.The labels Griffin Creek, Tualatin Vineyards, Made in Oregon, and Willamette Valley Vineyards are all part of WVV.
The winery has steadily upgraded the
quality of its offerings over the last few years. With the hiring of a
new winemaker in 1997, Joe Dobbes, the winery expanded its selection of
higher end wines. The winery's offerings now include Griffin Creek Viognier,
a WVV late harvest Viognier, and a sparkling "Frizzante" early
Muscat. Joe has moved on and assistant winemaker ---------- is now winemaker.
The winery and tasting facility sit atop Ilahee Hill just south of Salem, Oregon. The surrounding 50 acre estate vineyards are planted to select clones of Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Pinot Gris and Riesling.
In addition to its estate vineyards, its Tualatin holdings, and its Griffin Creek wines, Willamette Valley Vineyards purchases fruit from many additional sites throughout Oregon.
