2019 Winderlea Meredith Mitchell Pinot blanc

209 cases produced

Buy Now The Meredith Mitchell Vineyard Pinot blanc is our unique take on this Alsatian classic. The aromatics show depth and layered complexity. A hint of barrel leads immediately to notes of grapefruit and papaya, with an underlying briny character. The palate has weight without being heavy, gliding from flavors of kiwi fruit to persimmon and nougat. The flavor lingers, the finish is long, and the wine is undeniably striking.

2018 Winderlea Dundee Hills Vineyards Pinot noir

505 cases produced

An homage to our neighbors and friends, the Dundee Hills Vineyards Pinot noir carries the original name of our estate and is an approachable and drinkable Pinot, focused and full, with firm but integrated tannins. The color is dense and penetrating blackberry, and the aromatics practically burst from the glass. There is ample potential for cellaring but it is so tasty now, it might not last that long.

2017 Winderlea Chardonnay

723 cases produced

Buy Now The 2017 Chardonnay displays all the nuance we celebrate in a cooler, more restrained vintage. The nose is abundant and bright- pie crust and toasted almond mix with lime zest and plumeria, which both transition to the palate. Flavors of stone fruit and blood orange add breadth while marzipan and a hint of rosemary add depth to this well-structured and balanced beauty.

2017 Winderlea Vintage Sparkling Brut

2017 Winderlea Maresh Vineyard Pinot noir

188 cases produced

Buy Now Our neighbor directly to the west, the Maresh Vineyard extends upwards of 700 feet in elevation, producing a dramatically differentiated wine from the Winderlea Vineyard. Bramble meets baking spice and cherry, invoking both the forest floor and the dusty end to summer. Linen, tarragon, and cranberry move from the nose to the palate, lingering and swirling, punctuated by white peppercorn, cedar, and a structure of firm, fine tannins and bright, fresh acidity.

2016 Winderlea Murto Vineyard Pinot noir

213 cases produced

Buy Now Always intensely purple in color, Murto is a well-established vineyard at the west end of the Dundee Hills that never fails to compel us by its extraordinary aromatics and structure.

The dense scent of lingonberry is steeped in tarragon and French lavender followed by a mélange of fresh and dried roses. The palate is structured and dark with cocoa and leather underscoring sharp red fruits and spicy black pepper.

2017 Winderlea Weber Vineyard Pinot noir

376 cases produced

Buy Now Formerly known as Ana, the Weber vineyard overlooks our Estate Tasting Room and was planted only two years after Winderlea by longtime growers and pioneers Arthur and Vivian Weber. We are grateful that Vivian has continued to care for this legendary site since Arthur's passing. Orange oil, thai basil, red licorice, rose hip and raspberry candy burst from the glass and slide into the palate. These flavors are balanced by fine, powdery tannins, bright fruits, and a hint of cinnamon and lavender on a silky, long finish.
