Lia's Vineyard is located in the Chehalem Mountains AVA in Oregon's Willamette Valley. The elevation ranges from 380 to 560 feet and the aspect is primarily due south. The soils are mostly Jory, a dark reddish brown silty clay loam, with a transition to sedimentary series around the 400 ² contour. We believe the soils combined with the climate are what lend our grapes their unique character.
The vineyard has about 25 acres planted to eight clones/selections of pinot noir - WÃ¤denswil, Pommard, 114, 115, 667, 777, 828, and Mariafeld (aka UCD23), as well as a bit over two acres of Chardonnay (Wente Selection). The Pommard, WÃ¤denswil and Chardonnay were all propagated from own-rooted cuttings with plantings from 1990 to 1993. The 1999-2002 plantings are all on 101-14 rootstock. Spacing on plantings prior to 2009 is 5Ã—9 with VSP trellising. The most recent plantings (2009) are spaced 3Ã—7 and 4Ã—7 on RG, 101-14, and SO4 rootstocks. Â The vines aren't irrigated - we hold that dry farming tends to produce more balanced vines and better fruit.
