Teutonic Pinot Meunier Borgo Pass Vineyard

“Borgo Pass is located in Monroe Oregon, in the Southern part of the Willamette Valley. The vines were planted in the 1980’s by Mark Debose and Jan O’Banion on their 40+ acre vineyard where they also grow Pinot Noir, Gamay, Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Gris and Chardonnay. Their business model was to only sell to hobby winemakers, because Mark didn’t want to “deal with persnickety winemakers or sign contracts and all that gobbledygook.” Of course, Barnaby being tenacious as he is, finally convinced Mark to sell us all his Pinot Meunier grapes. The deal was, - - you buy them, you pick them. So, the tradition of gathering up friends to help pick the fruit at Borgo started in 2008. "Willamette Valley" on the label. “

“Typical flavors from this wine produce bright berry flavors, grippy acid that balances nicely with the velvety smooth finish. “
