"Drinking beautifully at the moment, this pinot from the Chehalem Mountains is silky smooth and balanced, featuring an enticing mix of fruity and more evolved aromas, red and black cherry, damp earth and orange peel, and the vestiges of quality oak, now fully integrated. The texture is lovely, with very fine tannins framed by balanced acids. A fine vintage indeed."

Freja Vineyards are located on the Chehalem Mountains  in the North Willamette Valley.

The Pinot Noir vines are on a very steep slope at 800-700 ft elevation  facing south-southwest with the soil type of Laurelwood. The Laurelwood series is a well-drained reddish silt loam loess deposits reaching a depth of 30 feet left behind by the missoula floods at the end of the ice age.

Originally from Woodstock, N.Y, William (Willy) Gianopulos became interested in wine and grape growing while completing a Masters Degree in Chemical Engineering in Stockholm, Sweden. He established Freja in 1988 with both Wadensville (50%), 777 (25%) and Pommard (25%) Pinot Noir clones. The  vineyards are managed using sustainable viticulture practices.
