Oregon wines with a signature style of elegance and restraint, Gran Moraine produces Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and sparkling wines from the Willamette Valley. Our estate vineyards, Gran Moraine Vineyard and our Winery Estate Vineyard, perch on some of the oldest marine sedimentary-based soils in the Yamhill-Carlton sub-AVA of the northern Willamette Valley. Our wines showcase Winemaker Shane Moore’s tireless attention to detail in both the vineyard and the winery, which translates to precision and elegance in the bottle.
At Gran Moraine, we believe in picking fruit on the cusp of ripeness to maintain the most pure, intense, and expressive fruit characteristics. With its cool climate, the Yamhill-Carlton sub-AVA has temperate growing conditions that allow for longer hang-time on the vine, which helps to preserve acidity and promote the nuanced fruit and earth characteristics – a signature of Gran Moraine wines. The result is a collection of estate Pinot Noirs, Chardonnays and sparkling wines that offer balance over opulence and a fresh through-line of acidity, while uniquely showcasing a complex, feminine, and delicate facet of the Yamhill-Carlton AVA.
