Organic


Tyson Crowley began working in the Oregon wine industry in 1995 and after 12 years of learning from many of Oregon’s top producers, it was time to take his knowledge to task and venture out on his own. Tyson’s lessons learned came from seven vintages at Erath Vineyards and more recently serving as the assistant winemaker for Cameron Winery working alongside John Paul in the vineyard and winery for four years. Harvests spent at J.K. Carriere and Brick House also taught valuable lessons in fruit fly killing and pseudo gravity flow as well as a commitment to distinctive, pure expression wines. After this requisite due paying, Tyson is making some of his own impressive Pinot Noir and Chardonnay from organic family owned vineyards originating from the Dundee Hills and Chehalem Mountains AVA’s in the Willamette Valley. The wines are fermented and aged underground in neutral oak employing native yeasts and minimal fining and filtration.
