ABOUT OUR VINEYARD
McBeth Vineyards was planted exclusively with Pinot Noir in 2003. The field blend is Dijon clones 113, 114, 115 and 777 from the neighboring King Estate nursery in Lorane, Oregon, just a few miles southwest of our farm. Additional Pommard 3309 clones were added during replanting stages to accent the soil makeup.
The Cooley Farm and McBeth Vineyards, is situated at an elevation of approximately 800 feet, on the ridge extending from the far western slope of Spencer Butte at the very southern end of the Willamette Valley just outside Eugene, Oregon.
The soil is a marine sedimentary-based Complex 43C: Philomath-Dixonville-Hazelair on gentle 3 to 12 percent slope.
Our small lot, 100% estate grown production, is meticulously managed by us with an eye towards producing a field-blend style of stylistic pinot noir, celebrating pleasant mid-palate fruit and easy-going aromas and flavors; a “farm house” wine for simply enjoying.
