Toluca Lane is a family owned boutique grape growing, wine operation in Yamhill County, Oregon. Our philosophy is to make intense, handcrafted Pinot Noir using minimal intervention in our winemaking process in an effort to let the character of the vineyard express itself. In order to achieve this intensity, we drop the fruit in our vineyards to 8 clusters or less per vine. This typically yields less than 2 tons per acre.
The Toluca Lane Vineyards are located in the Walnut Hill area of the Eola-Amity Hills AVA. Two of the predominant influences of the characteristics of the wines from this area are the shallow Nekia soils and the Van Duzer corridor. The Nekia soils primarily contain weathered volcanic basalt from ancient lava flows. These shallow, well drained soils tend to produce smaller grapes with greater concentration of flavor. The Van Duzer corridor is a break in the coastal range that allows cool ocean winds to flow into the area dropping afternoon temperatures. These afternoon and evening breezes help provide the cool nights that keep acids firm and are essential for optimal ripening.
Our Pinot Noir is unfined and unfiltered.
