Pinot Noir, Holloran Vineyards
Located in Oregon's Willamette Valley, Holloran Vineyard Wines (HVW) is a small production label focusing on Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, and Riesling. The winemaker is Mark LaGasse, who favors traditional Burgundian winemaking techniques including small lot fermentations, a mix of indigenous and cultured yeasts, minimal handling or processing, and natural ML for barrel aged wines.
HVW practices organic farming at some sites and Biodynamic farming on its older vines. The Holloran Pinot Noir and Chardonnay wines are barrel-aged in French oak for 18 months. This particular label is bottled unfiltered, to preserve its individual character and flavor.
