Teutonic Pinot Meunier Borgo Pass Vineyard 2014
Story

Partially planted to Pinot Meunier, Bargo Pass vineyard lies west of Eugene, Oregon; not in the picturesque Rogue River Valley, but west of the flats of lower Oregon about two hours from Portland, where the limits of the Willamette Valley are stretched.

Borgo Pass Vineyard is just a few miles east of Barnaby and Olga's location in Alsea. The vineyard, which for some reason shares its name with the treacherous approach to the vampire's castle in Bram Stoker's Dracula, is as far west as you can get and still be able to put the words "Willamette Valley" on the label. The Pinot Meunier cuttings were planted thirty years ago.
