Sensual, alluring, provocative—Pinot Noir, more than any other grape, reflects where it is grown. We pay tribute to the land with our name. A series of orogenic episodes near the Pacific Ocean formed the mountains and streams that created Green Valley's ideal growing conditions. Its well-drained soils, coupled with warm days and cool nights chilled by maritime fog, give us seductively satisfying grapes, resulting in a wine that entices the senses.
Orogeny Vineyards' single-minded goal is to produce luscious, sensuous Pinot Noir. We knew that this relatively unknown area was the perfect location to grow high-end Pinot Noir, but we also wanted to take advantage of the latest clones and the newest viticulture. So, instead of purchasing existing vineyards, we leased or signed long-term growing contracts with a few growers who were developing small vineyards. These agreements and the size of the vineyards allow us to care for the vineyards almost as if they are large gardens; we specify every detail of the planting, growing and harvesting.
