Coeur de Terre
We moved to the Willamette Valley in the spring of 1998 in pursuit of creating the next great Pinot Noir as well as creating an environment where our family could thrive. We believe in working sustainably and organically with nature to create a healthy environment for our vines and family. We came to this special place after getting lost on Memorial Day weekend in 1998 scouting out potential vineyard sites. We ran across a then out of the way place that showed great promise for growing quality Pinot Noir. After spending many weeks of walking the land and analyzing the soils, we decided this would be the future home of Coeur de Terre. We moved into our new home on Labor Day weekend that year and set to work developing the site. We are very hands on and are responsible for all aspects of the vineyard and winery operation. All new plants are grafted at the estate in our greenhouse from hand selected vines in our vineyard, all viticulture activity is directed by us and all winemaking is done onsite by us in micro sized lots keeping all blocks separate until final bottling. We have always farmed our site utilizing only organic practices and have been glyphosate free on on entire property for 5 years.
CdT is truly a family business and we take great pride in what we have created.
