Years ago, I began experimenting with the variety I love - Pinot Noir. Instead of destemming and crushing the berries, I gently dropped the hand-picked clusters in a chilled fermenter, pushed all the oxygen out with CO2 and sealed the vessel tight. What happened next was magical - the black berries on the stem started swelling up and turning pink. When they burst, they released the most aromatic Pinot Noir.
We were honored when our Whole Cluster Pinot Noir was recognized by Wine Enthusiast Magazine who named our 2015 vintage as Editor's Choice and awarded it with a 90-point rating.
In 2016, we created a new look for Whole Cluster. To celebrate this, our winery's culinary team has created a decadent recipe - Pork Ribs with Whole Cluster Pinot Noir Blackberry Barbecue Sauce - shown here. I encourage you to try this recipe and enjoy it with a glass of Whole Cluster Pinot Noir.

Please join us for a very rare vertical tasting of our Estate Pinot Noirs on May 6th. After receiving a glass of our 2016 chilled Rosè of Pinot Noir in our FIRST CLASS cellar, guests will be seated in our barrel room. There you will enjoy our 2010, 2012, 2013, 2014 and 2015 Estate Pinot Noirs along with a cheese pairing for each wine.
Owners Steve and Carol will lead the tasting with emphasis on the weather for that vintage and how it affected each wine, as well as stories of the harvest that year.
There will be special pricing on these extraordinary wines, and we will introduce the release of a very special wine – our limited 2014 First Class Owner’s Blend. This wine is made from one very special barrel that Steve and Carol picked from the 2014 vintage. This barrel selected wine will have you saying OMG!
Seating is limited so please call us at 541-847-5792 to place your reservation today.
While we continue to offer our legendary hospitality and wine flights, we are excited to share with you our new Ouroboros and Estate experiences.
Our Ouroboros experience allows you (and up to 7 friends) to dive deep into our wines (library, limited, and single vineyard selections) while discovering what makes Brooks and the Willamette Valley such a idyllic place to grow Riesling and Pinot Noir.
Looking for a bit more adventure? Hop into our brand new RTV and get a grand tour of our estate vineyard. You will be among the vines as you enjoy six different wines and will get an appreciation for how "great wines come from great vineyards."
Drinking Oregon wine in Oregon, in the company of acclaimed winemakers, chefs and craftspeople, is downright grand.
And doing it all for free is, well... awesome.
