Fruit for the Backbone wines comes from some of the
finest vineyards in the state – vineyards that consistently produce
high quality grapes that could
warrant their own bottlings as vineyard designates. But instead of
showcasing the terroir of a particular site, these wines demonstrate that when
blended well, the whole can be greater than the sum of its
The core, or “backbone”, of the Signature blends is
provided by the same vineyards that make up the Backbone program.
We are pleased to showcase the
high quality fruit that would regularly find its way into the
Signature blend, and to demonstrate how selection of geographically diverse lots can produce
an excellently balanced wine with structured acidity and added
layers of complexity. These
vineyards are found throughout Oregon, and are concentrated in the
Willamette Valley. This geographic diversity affords our winemaking team unmatched
flexibility in crafting fine wines that are a true expression of
Oregon’s signature terroir in any
given vintage. Through meticulous lot selection we are able to
adjust accordingly to any curve balls Mother Nature may throw our way.
