Premium Wines from Outstanding Oregon Vineyards: Montinore Estate & Landlines Estates

With a 200-acre Demeter Certified Biodynamic and CCOF Certified Organic vineyard located in north Willamette Valley in Oregon, Montinore focuses on producing superior Pinot Noirs, cool climate whites, and fascinating Italian varietals.
Landlines Estates produces small, distinct lots of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay from Tidalstar Vineyard in Oregon’s Yamhill Carlton area. The 30-acre biodynamically-farmed vineyard has nutrient-rich maritime soils, ideal elevation, and an east-facing slope that provides cool winds at night and a morning sun for slow, deliberate grape growth. Landlines Estates is also wholly committed to sustainable growing practices resulting in a superior wine.

Their respective spaces in Wine Walk Row will be designed to bring the community together to share knowledge about Oregon wines and biodynamic agriculture in a fun and approachable destination that welcomes both casual sippers and the most discerning connoisseurs.
