Evan and Sarah Martin produce wines from fruit they farm directly, or source from exceptional vineyard sites in the Willamette Valley and Walla Walla Valley. They focus on producing wines with textural elegance, expressive aromas and the potential for long-age, primarily from single vineyard origins, and have a unique approach using a large percentage of Oregon Oak Barrels for aging. These barrels are crafted from locally harvested oak, open-air dried on the Martin's property, and coopered in McMinnville. This produces a wine with distinct characteristics not found with traditional French Oak production.
