Do­maine Serene

Iconic Pro­duc­ers of Pinot Noir and Chardon­nay

Decanter - - PROMOTIONAL FEATURE -

Grace and Ken Even­stad, seek­ing the best site in the world for grow­ing and pro­duc­ing world-class Pinot Noir, set­tled in the Dundee Hills of Ore­gon’s Wil­lamette Val­ley in 1989. The Even­stads had faith in Ore­gon early on, be­fore there was a na­tional market for do­mes­tic Pinot Noir.

They in­vested in a hill­top es­tate prop­erty that had just been logged in the Dundee Hills. That prop­erty, the Even­stad Es­tate, is now rec­og­nized as one of the finest vine­yard es­tates in the world pro­duc­ing highly rated Pinot Noir and Chardon­nay that is glob­ally rec­og­nized as iconic by col­lec­tors and crit­ics alike.

In 2001, the Even­stads built a state-of-the-art, five-level grav­ity flow Pinot Noir win­ery. In 2017, al­ways in­no­vat­ing, they com­pleted a new White Win­ery ded­i­cated to the pro­duc­tion of Chardon­nay and Sparkling wine - the first of its kind in Ore­gon. The wineries, lo­cated on the pres­ti­gious Win­ery Hill Es­tate, were built as a state­ment to the qual­ity of Pinot Noir and Chardon­nay that can be pro­duced from the un­par­al­leled Dundee Hills AVA.

In less than three decades of op­er­a­tion, Do­maine Serene has con­sis­tently been rec­og­nized for pro­duc­ing world-class wines by var­i­ous ma­jor wine pub­li­ca­tions. In 2013, their 2010 Even­stad Re­serve Pinot Noir was named the #1 Pinot Noir in the World by Wine Spec­ta­tor in their Top 100. Three years later, in 2016, their 2014 Even­stad Re­serve Chardon­nay was named #1 White Wine in the World by the same pub­li­ca­tion.

To­day, Do­maine Serene pro­duces wines from six in­di­vid­ual vine­yard es­tates, planted ex­clu­sively to Pinot Noir and Chardon­nay. Each es­tate of­fers a di­ver­sity of soils, clones, root­stocks, mi­cro­cli­mates, slopes and el­e­va­tions that add distin­guish­ing com­plex­ity and el­e­gance to the wines.

In to­tal, Do­maine Serene owns 950 acres of land in the hills of Yamhill County, with 287 acres planted to vine.

Since 1989, the Even­stads have ex­celled in their quest to pro­duce iconic Pinot Noir and Chardon­nay.
