About This Producer

From small-scale hobby to major career endeavor, Harry Peterson-Nedry has taken his winemaking from one end of the spectrum to the other. In 1980, he made his first move, planting 37-acre Ridgecrest Vineyards in Oregon's new Ribbon Ridge AVA. A decade later, he took another major step, founding Chehalem with partners Bill and Cathy Stoller (owners of Stoller Vineyards) and expanding his estate holdings over the course of the next five years. Peterson-Nedry actively applies his degree in Chemistry to his winemaking, experimenting and tinkering with different variables on his fruit every vintage to produce consistently high quality wine. All fruit is estate-grown; reds include Pinot Noir and a bit of Gamay and the whites are Pinot Gris, Chardonnay, Riesling, and Pinot Blanc.

Wine Varietal: Pinot Noir

Notorious for its fickle growing patterns, Pinot Noir vines prefer long, cool growing conditions and tend to mutate easily, leaving behind numerous clones and inconsistent flavor profiles. Although it is one of the three major varieties used in Champagne production, Burgundy is the traditional home of Pinot Noir. The 30-mile stretch of hills known as the Cote d'Or is valued as the world's premier production area. Pinot Noir is planted all over the world. In the United States, Sonoma, the Russian River Valley, Carneros and the Willamette Valley produce top-notch wines from this variety. Other notable countries include New Zealand, Australia, and Chile. Typical descriptors for Pinot Noir include strawberry, raspberry, cherry, mushroom, and meaty notes.
