Oregon's Willamette Valley stretches from Eugene in the South to the border of Washington State in the north.
The Valley is nestled between the Oregon Coast Range in the West and the Cascades in the East. Its northern latitude – combined with its warm summer days, Indian Summers, and cool fall nights – lends a vibrant acidity and inherent freshness to the region’s wines.
At Scott Paul Wines, we work with four distinct vineyard sites within the Willamette Valley. It is our job, as stewards of the land and pursers of our craft, to ensure that the distinct nature of each vineyard imparts its own unique stamp on our wines.
We believe that the path to pure and unadulterated Willamette Valley fruit comes from thoughtful, purposeful and sustainable practices in the vineyard. Throughout the growing year, we work to encourage microflora around the vine and build abundant soil microbe populations throughout the vineyard.
In accordance with organic and biodynamic practices, we do not use pesticides or herbicides at our sites. We believe that the subtraction of herbicides, pesticides and fungicides makes for a healthy microfauna in the vine row, in the vine and on the resulting fruit, allowing for more expressive wines.
