Colene Clemens Vineyards
It is no secret I have a serious Love, it is called Pinot Noir. The Willamette Valley AVA has a number of smaller sub-ava’s and each one seems to have very distinct tasting notes. The Chehalem mountains, in my opinion have very elegant Pinot Noirs, soft, subtle yet extremely complex and are a true joy to spend time with as they open up over the course of an hour or so.

After enjoying some truly spectacular wines we stepped out into the vineyard with wine maker Stephen Goff. They were in the midst of planning out the new block of Chardonnay grapes.
