East Zena

Pinot Noir

East Zena vineyard is located towards the southern end of the Eola Hills, which is in final review for approval as an official AVA and located within the Willamette Valley, home to many of Oregon’s finest Pinot Noir vineyards. During the growing season, ocean breezes push through the Van Duzer Corridor in the Coastal Range maintaining a consistently cool climate that is the hallmark of all great Pinot Noir winegrowing regions. This climate, combined with the shallow, well-drained volcanic soils of the Nekia series that dominate this area, are the primary reasons the Eola Hills is emerging as one of the world’s most exciting winegrowing regions.
