Our First Pick Riesling is engulfed by scents of nori, green tea, and citrus marmalade, while the mid palate brings forth flavors of honey comb. Rice starch and oolong tea tannins are balanced with flavors of asian pear, and a nutty finish which nicely rounds out the flavors. With sweeping views of Oregon’s coast range, David Hill Vineyards & Winery is one of the most picturesque wine venues in the Willamette Valley. The name of the hill they sit on is David’s Hill, for Frederick David, an Oregon pioneer from the 1800’s. David Hill Vineyards and Winery is home to the Willamette Valley’s oldest Pinot Noir vines. In 1965 Charles Coury, along with a few other wine pioneers, came north from California to establish vineyards in the Willamette Valley where they believed they could successfully grow Pinot Noir. Many of the vines still exist. There are approximately 6 acres of old vine Pinot Noir and 2 acres of Riesling. There is also Gewürztraminer, Pinot Blanc and Pinot Gris that were planted at that time as well.
