Our 2015 Chardonnay has a nice crisp nose with hints of honeydew. The acidity is very pronounced on this Chardonnay with tastes of Granny Smith Apples.
VINEYARDS: Dion Vineyard
For over 30 years, three generations of their family have been stewards to the land and terroir that is Dion Vineyard.
They provide premium wine grapes to a wide variety of wineries throughout Oregon. They also produce small quantities of wine for their own label. In their grapes and their wine they strive to achieve a sense of terroir – a sense of the people and the place that are home to these vines.
Located in the Northern Willamette Valley, Dion Vineyard is 60 acres of southerly slopes. Their vines, some over 30 years old, are rooted in Laurelwood soils at elevations from 300 to 500 feet. They principally grow Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris and Chardonnay.
Dion Vineyards is located off Riedweg Road in Cornelius, Oregon.

Our 2017 Chardonnay is very light and delicate. The finish on this wine has a slight vanilla creaminess. This one is sure to please those dry and sweet wine lovers. We would actually cellar this Chardonnay for a few years.
