A beautiful expression of classic Willamette Valley wine, sourced from vineyards in Salem that promote low-yielding vines. Floral with great acidity and mouthfeel making for a dry, refreshing sipper. Notes of apricot, nectarine, lemon zest, grapefruit, elderflower, and minerals characterize the Duck Pond Willamette Valley Pinot Gris.
Duck Pond Cellars began growing fine Willamette Valley wine at our Dundee Hills winery in 1993. Since then we have farmed sustainably, crafting minimal-intervention wines that we hope faithfully reflect our unique Oregon climate, soil, and culture. For over 25 years, Duck Pond has been committed to farming the land sustainably and organically and using traditional winemaking techniques to craft pure, estate-driven wines. The 2020 vintage marks a historic moment for Duck Pond as the First Certified Natural Path Production Wine in America by the Clean Label Project™ — a national non-profit with the mission to bring truth and transparency to food and consumer product labeling.
Duck Pond wines are organically farmed, hand-harvested, and artfully crafted, achieving 90pt. scores or higher in most recent vintages produced by our winemaker, Julia Cattrall. Duck Pond wines embody and reflect a steadfast commitment to farming sustainably and organically. Our vision is to produce quality wines that express the region’s purest, most natural form, just as mother nature intended.
Pairs well with pork, spicy food, mushroom dishes, and cured meats.
