Duck Pond Cellars Pinot Noir 2017
This 2014 Pinot Noir features a sleek new redesigned label, but the real showstopper is the wine inside the bottle. Crafted using fruit from several of our Oregon vineyard sites. the resulting wine is lush, fruit-forward and supple, with loads of red fruit and spice. The 2013 was an exceptional vintage and we think this wine will age gracefully for many years to come.
Despite its status as one of the larger wine producers in Oregon, Duck Pond Cellars remains small at heart and is a family-owned winery through and through. Originally from California's Central Valley, lifelong farmers Doug and Jo Ann Fries moved their young family to the small Central Oregon town of Sunriver in the early 1980s. In 1984, they purchased property along the banks of the Willamette River in Dundee, Oregon, where they planted a 500-acre hazelnut orchard. As devoted wine aficionados, they also planted a small 13-acre vineyard with the hopes of producing a few hundred cases of their own wine.
