Illahe Thanksgiving Weekend Open House

Friday Nov. 28th - Sunday Nov. 30th  11am-5pm

We invite you to Illahe Vineyards this Thanksgiving weekend. Taste through our limited releases of 2012 and 2013 pinot noirs and whites, paired with light nibbles including Pauline's famous salmon cheesecake. Peek into our brand new wine cave, listen to vinyl, and talk with Brad, our winemaker, about this years harvest. Our horses, Doc & Bea, will be giving vineyard tours, weather permitting.

$10 tasting fee refunded with a 4 bottle purchase
Free for Cellar Club members and up to 4 guests.

 

At Illahe, our goal is to make wine as naturally as possible from the soil to the bottle. This requires working by hand on small lots with age-old techniques and materials.

 Our focus is to make and grow quality pinot noir and white wines that express the vintage and their varietal characteristics. We don't use enzymes or additives, and we don't fine or filter our pinot noir. Some of our lots are made entirely by hand with no electricity or mechanization. We use a gentle wooden basket press, and age our pinot noir in French and Oregon oak.

 Of course, quality wine starts with quality fruit in the vineyard. Our 80-acre, south-facing vineyard lives in shallow clay soils. Like our friends in the Deep Roots Coalition, we do not irrigate mature plants. As one of Oregon’s few horse-powered vineyards, we utilize a team of Percheron drafts to mow and deliver grapes to the winery at harvest.
