The Vineyard

vineyardFreja Vineyards are located on the Chehalem Mountains  in the North Willamette Valley.

The Pinot Noir vines are on a very steep slope at 800-700 ft elevation  facing south-southwest with the soil type of Laurelwood. The Laurelwood series is a well-drained reddish silt loam loess deposits reaching a depth of 30 feet left behind by the missoula floods at the end of the ice age.

The current production acreage was established in 1988 with both Wadensville (75%) and Pommard (25%) Pinot Noir clones on native roots. Under Freja management, an adjacent property, the Hughes vineyard, has begun producing high quality fruit(115) for the winery. 

The  vineyards are managed using sensible viticulture practices.
