La Chouette Vineyard

179-A  Ankeny Hill Rd. SE,  

Jefferson  Oregon  97352

503-990-4974

 

Location:  

Just south of Salem Oregon facing southwest, looking toward the Coast Range.  The elevation gives consistent evening summer breezes coming from the west.  The upper vineyard seems to have warm spring temperatures.  

Soils:  

State soil maps list two soils in our vineyards, Steiwer and Chehulpum Silt Loams.  The soil is quite fertile with about 3 feet of top soil before finding sedimentary soils with plant and shell fossils.  The lower vineyard has some harder rocky areas that should be interesting for the Chardonnay clones.

Clones:  

Pinot Noir:  115, 777, Pommard.  

Pinot Gris:   FPS 04

Chardonnay:  Dijon Clones including 76, 95, 96, and 548

Vineyard Management:

Rob Clark of Terrapin Cellars has been instrumental from the beginning of our vineyard venture.  He promotes sustainable viticulture practices with minimal intervention.
