About Windy Bay

Windy Bay is a reflection of Oregon's famed Pinot Noir grape. Fertile valleys, set between the Cascade Mountains and the Pacific Ocean, create lingering, cool growing seasons the perfect climate for Pinot Noir.


It is sourced from 4 prized appellations within the Willamette valley of Oregon. The grapes were de-stemmed but not crushed, and then cold soaked for 4 days prior to fermentation which helps stabilize color and contributes elegant aromatics and balanced tannins.
The wines were fermented at 80 degrees for about 10 days. Some lots were fermented in Oak fermenters and some in 2 ton fermenters with punch downs.
