Located outside of Monmouth, south of the Eola-Amity Hills AVA, Croft Vineyards organically farms two distinct sites. The main Croft Vineyard sits on a long, gradual, southeast facing slope while the Croft-Williamson Vineyard sits on a steep southwest facing slope. The soils are primarily Bellpine Series with small inclusions of other soil types, such as Willakenzie and Jory. Both Croft Vineyard sites sit within a slightly warmer microclimate protected from the Van Duzer Winds by the Coast Range and surrounding hills. Croft yields concentrated, deeply colored wines with red and dark berry notes alongside aromas of spice, and damp, lush pine forest.
Elevation: 400-500 ft.
Clones: 115 and Pommard
Elevation: 500-600 ft.

A dry farmed and LIVE certified vineyard in the western Yamhill-Carlton AVA, we source from one block of 30-year-old vines and one block of 23-year-old vines for our Fir Crest Pinot Noir. This site produces Pinot Noir akin to a wise sage speaking profoundly and melodiously. The well-draining sedimentary soil derives from ancient sea floor—a stunning site all-around.
Elevation: 250-400 ft.
Clones: 115 and Pommard

A large, biodynamic vineyard in the McMinnville AVA, the site benefits from long, warm days. However, it is also one of the first vineyards in the Willamette Valley to cool down every evening due to its proximity to the Van Duzer Corridor, which funnels cold, coastal winds into the valley. We source from four blocks: 777 clone from the very heights of the vineyard, a steep block of 115 on the hillside, 113 from the bottom of the slopes, and 114 from around the pond at the northeastern part of the vineyard. A mix of sedimentary and volcanic soils, Momtazi Vineyard provides ripe flavors of dark berries and Eastern spices, backed by firm tannins and lively acidity.
Elevation: 500-800 ft.
Clones: 115 and 777
Fruit used in the following wines: Momtazi Vineyard Pinot Noir, Five FACES Pinot Noir
