    Description: Founded in 1989, Youngberg Hill aspires to create the very best wine from the grapes grown in each vintage. We focus our attention on growing the highest quality of grapes possible, and then managing the fruit through the fermentation process. By limiting yields and restraining barrel treatment, we are able to produce fine wines that give a pure expression of our beautiful vineyard and its terroir. Wine is a wonderful gift from nature, and its qualities vary according to the year and all of the different elements in a vine’s growing environment. The French term which describes this concept is terroir – meaning not just the soil, but also the rainfall, drainage, exposure and climate specific to a given site. The journey of a vine through its growth cycle, within its specific terroir, is an amazing thing: the vine sends its roots deep into the living earth. It struggles in search of water and nutrients, in communion with the unseen but vital world of soil microbes. Above the ground, the vineyard teems with life. A large community of grasses, herbs, and wildflowers supports a complex array of insect life, and the vine, with its verdant canopy, sends out its flowers and produces a crop of grapes. During the warm days of summer the grapes soak up the sun and ripen. When the seasons begin to change and autumn is arriving, it is time to begin the harvest, not too soon and not too late. The attentive grower watches over the vines as nature works its miracles, feeling the energy of life in the air and tending the vineyard sensitively and with a light hand. It is the winegrower’s job to bring out the potential of the grapes and to let the story of this place- the terroir of the vineyard and the year of the vintage- be told with clarity in the wine. Here at Youngberg Hill, we aim to accomplish just that with every bottle of wine we make.

    Our Tasting Room
    Taste the wine and savor the experience.
    Our tasting room is open 7 days a week 10 am to 4 pm. Appointments for groups of more than 6 and tastings from December through March needed.

    Imagine sitting on the front porch and a cool summer day. In front of you is the expanse of the Willamette Valley with the Cascade Mountains as the backdrop. To the north is Mt. Hood. To the east is Mt Jefferson. Further to the south is Sisters. As you sweep around to the southwest, the Coast Range shows its blue hue. Below are the grapevines from which the grapes are grown that make the wine you are tasting.

    As you are sitting there, you feel a calmness sweep over your body and mind. Thoughts of what you have to do or where you need to go quietly disappear. The only thing that matters is that you are totally in that moment, at this place, in a serene state of mind. It is perfectly quiet, calm, and peaceful.

    This is not the standard wine tasting experience. You are not bellied up to the bar. You are tasting with the winemaker, grape grower, and owner. You are a guest that is welcome on the hill to enjoy all we have to offer.

    This is Youngberg Hill.
    Come taste the wine and savor the experience.

    2009 Youngberg Hill - Pinot Noir - Red

    Retail Price: $40.00

    no photo











    2009 Jordan Pinot Noir
    The Jordan Block sits on 4.5 estate acres facing South. It is on a steeper slope than the Natasha block and gets more benefit from the coastal breeze each afternoon. A wine with more “Burgundian” character and substance, the fruit from this block is especially age worthy. This wine will be at its best from 2011 to 2020.

    $40/bottle $432/case Wine Club $408/case Purchase Wine

    [+] Tasting & Pairing Notes
    Tasting Notes:

    Burgundy red color. Cherry cola, blackberries, black currant and blue plum along with coffee, cassis, and violets leads to an elegant and opulent palate and fresh mineral notes from the volcanic soil. The finish is lush with bigger tannins and a full, round texture.

    Pairing Suggestions:

    A fuller bodied Pinot with higher acidity and tannins makes this wine very food friendly going magically with any red meat and wild mushroom dishes.

    [+] Tasting & Pairing Notes
    Tasting Notes:

    The aromatics begin with Asian pear, grapefruit and lime citrus. The fruit flavors of lime, grapefruit, and citrus are distinct and crisp. It has a creaminess that makes the wine melt in your mouth and lingers. The rich, buttery, full flavors will keep you coming back for another sip.

    The 2012 vintage is a wonderful complement to food with a crab cake being my favorite.

    [+] Tasting & Pairing Notes
    Tasting Notes:

    Bright fruit aromatics range from grapefruit, mango, to apricot, leading to a flavor palate of lemon, grapefruit, apricot and tropical fruit. Its texture gives way to a wonderfully smooth and round finish that is easy to drink sitting out on the front deck. With a little higher acidity, it is very crisp with a soft, clean finish.

    This wine has excellent balance for drinking by itself at cool temperatures or with cheeses, bread, and a light virgin olive oil.
