“Les commencements ont des charms inexprimables.” -Moliére
Beginnings have inexpressible charms.
I can hardly believe that now, seven years since I took a chance on this beautiful piece of land, Arlyn Vineyard is releasing our first ever estate wines. The vineyard is dry-farmed, low till, and biodynamic. Opting for lower yields and little intervention, our methods are restorative to the soil and all that grows here.
Made by the incomparable Thomas Savre of Lingua Franca, a protegé of Dominque Lafon and formerly of Domaine de la Romanée-Conti, royal Burgundian roots whisper through these truly Oregon wines.
In addition to purchasing online, wines may be obtained via email or a call to the vineyard. Your support means the world!

2018 Rós Rosé of Pinot Noir
Subtle salmon hue, nose of rose water and red cream soda. Lean strawberry rhubarb with a touch of pith to balance the fruit. The savory characteristics develop to bring a richness balanced with freshness, acidity and delicate texture on the back palate.
2017 Lionne Chardonnay
Aromas of marzipan, honey, white flowers and lime zest. Elegant, voluptuous and refined, then balanced with fresh acidity. Stone fruit, green apple skin, softer end of the baking spices.
2017 Running with Scissors Pinot Noir
Sour cherry, cranberry and baking spices. And then taste tart red fruit, grapefruit zest, the freshness of cranberry. Offers mouthwatering acidity along with soft, integrated tannins.
2017 In Good Faith Pinot Noir
Aromas of bramble, light blackberry, sassafras and iron. Soft fruit, fine tannins, cinnamon, herbaceous spice. With softness and precision of structure, there is length in this wine and it will age beautifully.
