Ribbon Ridge AVA - 2005

Welcome to Ribbon Ridge where rich history was born, as Ribbon Ridge was named in 1865. Ribbon Ridge has been called an "island-like ridge", standing alone in the heart of the Willamette Valley. It is another one of Oregon’s new “small but mighty” sub-appellations.

This appellation boasts a who’s who of Willamette Valley producers, including the likes of Beaux Freres, Brick House, Bergstrom, Patricia Green, Adelsheim & others.

Ribbon Ridge is actually in the Chehalem Mountains but because it’s on the southern lip of the mountains that has a slightly different soil and weather type, it earned its own AVA. Ribbon Ridge is where you’ll find the intense cranberry flavors and rustic earthy notes that is recognized as Oregon Pinot Noir.


More...

Ribbon Ridge is a very regular spur of ocean and glacial sediment uplift off the northwest end of the Chehalem Mountains, containing a relatively uniform 3350 acres of land.  About 500 acres are currently planted on the ridge, within 20 vineyards.  The AVA is distinguished by uniform, unique ocean and glacial sedimentary soils down to the glacial, alluvial level of about 250 ft. These fine, marine nutrient-depleted sedimentary soils stress the vines making for great wine.  The geography is protected climatically by the larger landmasses surrounding it, making it slightly warmer.
