  • 2022 Lange, "Reserve" Pinot Noir
    Oregon/ Willamette Valley AVA
    Our Reserve series wines have a higher percentage of fruit from our premier vineyard sites. These selections, made barrel by barrel, were carefully chosen over time and include fruit from Freedom Hill, Mistletoe, Durant, Yamhill, Hirschy, Madrona Hill, and our own Lange Estate vineyards. By blending barrels from multiple vineyards, father and son winemaking duo, Don and Jesse Lange, have translated the vintage into a single cuvée while showcasing all the versatility and range pinot noir is capable of expressing. A hallmark of this series is the smoothly honed tannins that lend shape to a wine with fantastic richness, power, and nuance.

  • 2021 Lange, "Estate Vineyards" Pinot Noir
    Oregon/ Dundee Hills AVA/ Lange Estate Vineyard
    Our three Estate vineyards are located in the Northern Dundee Hills appellation. The AVA is perhaps best known for its rust-red volcanic soils formed by Columbia River Basalts more than 14 million years ago. These rich clay-loam soils, predominantly Jory and Nekia, are deep and well-drained. Combined, all three vineyard sites total 60 acres under vine and comprise more than 80 individual vineyard blocks. Planting began in 1988 with Pommard and Wädenswil. Today, the oldest vines in the vineyard are now reaching their zenith at 34+ years of age, and they express terroir-driven power and finesse. Our 2021 Estate Pinot Noir displays an exuberant nose of strawberry and black raspberry interlaced with lavender, crushed stone, cardamom, and bergamot. It’s a seamless wine, with gathering energy on the palate that gives rise to a core of blue and black fruit along with a lively flourish of minerality and sweet tobacco on the finish.
    Suggested Retail Price: $80


Don and Wendy Lange founded their eponymous winery and estate vineyard in 1987 with an inaugural vintage that included small-lot bottlings of pinot noir, chardonnay, and pinot gris. These varietals continue to form the core of their portfolio. Considered New World pioneers in the production of pinot gris, the Langes have always defined their winemaking along a more classical paradigm: focused wines that express nuanced fruit, structure, balance, and texture. Don's son, Jesse, has been involved with the winery since its inception and formally joined the winemaking team in 2004, adding winemaking and vineyard oversight to his many responsibilities. Over the past 36 years, Don and Jesse have continued to hone their style, taking care to never impose on the vineyards or wines they produce. Wine Enthusiast proclaimed Lange Estate to be "one of the great pinot noir producers in the United States." The original 30-acre parcel in the Dundee Hills has since expanded to encompass 3 estate vineyards totaling more than 56 acres under vine. A state-of-the-art winemaking facility and hospitality center sits at the crown of the estate, the tasting room features stunning, panoramic views of vineyards, rolling valleys, and the Cascade Mountain Range. Last year, the family acquired a 65-acre property with 20 acres planted to pinot noir, near Monmouth, Oregon. The Lange's have renamed the parcel Lucky River Vineyards - a nod to the Luckiamute River which runs just south of the property.
