Gran Moraine Winery is named for the glacier-borne rocks that traveled hundreds of miles to land in our vineyards. Our vines perch in the thin marine sedimentary soils of the Coast Range foothills at the wild western edge of Oregon’s Willamette Valley. Each vintage, we push the limits of possibility—for quality, sustainability, and personality. We believe in LIVE certification, reducing yields as much as possible, picking fruit at the cusp of ripeness, and using native ferments to create a full-spectrum aromatic experience.
Winemaker Shane Moore toes the line of recklessness to create wines that capture the best of our Yamhill-Carlton AVA vineyards. The diversity of sun exposures, elevations, rootstocks, and clones in our estate vineyards translate into a varied lineup of Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Rose of Pinot Noir and méthode traditionnelle sparkling wines—each with its own personality. Uniting them all is a lively, linear grace that brightens the palate and lightens the soul.
