Sustainable producers Holloran Vineyard
Holloran Vineyard is a small-production, sustainably-farmed winery that aims to make wines representing the unique terroir and gifted characteristics of the vineyards in Willamette Valley. Since 1999, the winery has been in production in the Willamette Valley of Oregon. The wines begin with meticulous work in the vineyards. The company focuses on organic and biodynamic farming with their farming crew. They emphasize on low yields and careful hands-on management of the vines, including in their older Dundee Hills vines planted in the early 1970s.
Vineyards in the best locations
The oldest vineyard site is the La Pavilion in Dundee Hills. Other vineyards owned by them are La Chenaie, Meute de Chiens, and ANA. Winemaker Mark La Gasse has been here since 2005 and married his wife Claire at the winery. Tempranillo, Chardonnay, Riesling, Sauvignon Blanc, and Pinot Noir are the grapes grown here. Processing of grapes takes place in small lots, and fermentation is followed by gentle pressing to give a unique taste and complex aroma to the wines. French oak barrels are used for ageing.
Tradition and technology at the winery
All wines at Holloran are made with Old World traditions combined with modern technology. Each vintage is allowed to showcase its unique features and characteristics. The Holloran label includes top cuvees and is chosen from specific barrels and tanks. Holloran AVA wines are made from grapes sourced from an AVA site. The wines have premium bottling, and the high acidity is perfect for pairing with meals and other snacks.
