Winery Description

Domaine Serene Vineyards and Winery produces exquisite estate grown Pinot Noir and Chardonnay made atop the renowned Dundee Hills of Oregon. Its vineyard management and winemaking practices are
designed to ensure complex, concentrated and elegant Pinot Noir and Chardonnay year after year, and all resources are focused on this goal. Domaine Serene’s farming practices are designed to produce very low crop levels to ensure concentrated flavors - the average yield is only 1.7 tons per acre across all varietals. All of Domaine Serene’s grapes are handpicked and hand-sorted. The various small lots from each vineyard are kept separate in small open-top fermentors and aged in French cooperage selectively sourced from several French forests. There is minimal intervention and only gentle gravity flow movement of wine from beginning to end. Pinot Noir is in barrel about 14-18 months, is not fined or filtered, and is racked only at bottling. The Estate-grown Dijon clone Chardonnay is aged sur lies for 10-15 months in French oak barrels. Bottled wines are aged about one year or longer before release.
