Twenty-two miles from Mount Hood’s snowy peak, in an alpine river valley teeming with birds and oscillating light, lives a wild farm. Cows, chickens, and pigs graze among vines, and fungi and flowers proliferate as gardens merge with forest. Our wines are exciting for their wild exuberance when they are young, but they will only reveal their full potential to unite disparate time, place, and experience when stored properly for many years — a minimum of five years, but ideally 8 – 15 years following vintage — in a dark place between 53 – 60 degrees Fahrenheit and at 80 – 85% humidity.Wines labeled as Hiyu come from our hillside farm above the cool, swift waters of the Hood River. Each wine is from one of 16 named fields. We give these fields identity by planting them with a mixture of grape varieties inspired by an imagined moment in the history of the vine. Each of these small plots is picked by hand, fermented by wild yeasts, bottled by gravity, and labeled with the name of the field. Collectively these parcels are home to 112 different grapes and are organized into four families: Light Phenomena, Birds of Prey, Constellations, and the Hedgerow. Each reflects the specific influence of light, stars, creatures, and plants on these alpine wines.
