Product Description:

"'Hughes Hollow Vineyard' is located in the Salem Hill, just south of the Eola-Amity Hills AVA. The vines were planted in 1986 to own-rooted Pommard clone Pinot. The vineyard has always been dry farmed, but when Bow & Arrow took over in 2014, they also converted the farming to organics. It is a north facing slope that is, in fact, hollow.

"The wine is made with about 20% whole clusters, with a gentle and relatively short maceration. Elevage for 14 months in old barrique and stainless steel tank. 285 cases produced total." - Distributor

About the Producer
"Inspired by the wines of the Loire Valley and vignerons like Didier Barouillet of Clos Roche Blanche (who was an over-the-phone consultant on the project), Thierry Puzelat, and Marc Ollivier of Domaine de la Pepiere, Dana and Scott Frank set out to turn Oregon's "Pinotstocracy" on it's head. Semi-carbonic maceration, minimal punchdowns, no racking, and aging in old barrique for 10 months before finishing in tank leaves us with a super fresh Gamay, toping out at 11.5%. Oh, and we hear there is a Melon de Bourgogne in the wings as well!" - Distributor
