Lingua Franca Chardonnay 'Bunker Hill' Willamette Valley 2016
Founded by Larry Stone MS, David Honig, and Dominique Lafon, Lingua Franca beautifully meshes Old World mentality with New World terroir, highlighting the impeccable growing sites in Oregon’s Eola-Amity Hills. Fruit for the 2016 ‘Bunker Hill’ comes from 20+ year old vines, benefiting from cool Pacific breezes. The wine is rich yet bright, showing flavors of creamy stone fruit and pear, with vanilla undertones; refreshing, warming, & satisfying!

Just southwest of Portland is some of the world's greatest Pinot Noir, planted in sedimentary soils left by the Missoula Floods, cooled by Pacific air sneaking through gaps in the Cascades.
