Story

Laurel Vineyard is the highest vineyard in Oregon at 1250' elevation. The fruit they buy from this vineyard is on the very top (Bald Peak). This section of the vineyard is planted to Alsatian Coury clones (brought the US by Charles Coury in the 1960's). The soil type is loam. John Albin's (owner of Laurel Vineyard) vineyard management is low impact (no irrigation ever).

Celebrating its 29th growing season, the Laurel Vineyard bears some of the highest elevation and oldest vines in Oregon. The vineyard is comprised of Laurelwood and Loess wind-deposited soils from Eastern Oregon. They overlay basalt parent soils.  

This is the select bottling of “free run” wine from the oldest parcels on Bald Peak.
