- 100% Pinot Noir
A to Z Wineworks Oregon Pinot Noir, USA, Dundee Hills
This A to Z has twice been named to Wine Spectator’s Top 100 wines of the year and this Pinot Noir has concentrated depth and purity of fruit. The tannic structure brings balance to this classic, intense wine. Perhaps the most beautiful Pinot Noir they have made to date. A unique blend of fruit from over 60 different vineyards across Oregon and approximately 100 different fermentations.
Founded by Domaine Drouhin legend Bill Hatcher and his wife Deb, A to Z is Oregon’s fastest growing winery. The business model is simple: to produce and market Oregon’s best value wines by concentrating on their core skills of buying, blending and marketing.
Since debuting its inaugural 2001 Pinot Noir, A to Z has worked with more than 100 vineyards throughout Oregon: by assembling a fantastic team of winemakers and giving them an address book of all the great grape growers in Oregon, the component wines could be from any winery from A to Z. Cue lots of frantic sourcing of top notch parcels!
In May 2014, A to Z Wineworks became a certified B Corporation and has been honored as a Best in the World B Corp each subsequent year. The certification demonstrates their commitment to transparency, accountability and social, environmental and economic improvement.
The results are sensational, balanced wines that aim to be the essence of Oregon, especially in a state where average bottle prices are sky-high.
