Happy New Year!

What a year for Vincent Wine Company, as we celebrated 10 years as a winery.

We began in 2009 producing nine barrels of Pinot Noir from two vineyards in the northern Willamette Valley, among them Zenith in the Eola-Amity Hills AVA.

In 2019, we produced 92 barrels of Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Gamay, Pinot Blanc and Pinot Gris from nine vineyards, including Zenith and several other top sites such as Armstrong in Ribbon Ridge as well as Bjornson and Temperance Hill in the Eola-Amity Hills.

This past year we added distribution in Texas, found a top notch distribution partner in Oregon with Delicious Wines, and continued relationships in California, New York, Illinois, Rhode Island, North Carolina and the province of Quebec. We’re excited to add more partners in 2020, stay tuned.

And a big part of our business continues to be direct sales to customers around the United States. It’s easy to join our mailing list. That gets you access to our pre-release offers with special early pricing and free shipping options. That also gets you the ability to meet and taste with winemaker Vincent Fritzsche at our facility on Eola Hills Road whenever you visit the Willamette Valley. Get on that list! We’d love to meet you.

Thanks to all for the support these ten years. Here’s to many more!

Fall pre-release offer coming soon – sign up for the Vincent mailing list

Mailing list members – it’s almost time for the Vincent fall pre-release offer. If you’re not on our mailing list, sign up here!

The Fall pre-release offer will include the first five wines from the new 2018 vintage, and three final, special wines from 2017:

2018 Vincent Pinot Blanc Willamette Valley
2018 Vincent Chardonnay Willamette  Valley
2018 Vincent Pinot Gris Willamette Valley – red wine!
2018 Vincent Gamay Willamette Valley
2018 Vincent Pinot Noir Willamette Valley

2017 Vincent Chardonnay Ribbon Ridge Brick House Vineyard
2017 Vincent Pinot Noir Ribbon Ridge Armstrong Vineyard
2017 Vincent Pinot Noir Eola-Amity Hills Temperance Hill Vineyard

2018 was a fantastic growing season that ended with moderate, dry conditions, perfect for harvesting healthy fruit. Acidity levels are off the charts good. These first releases will give you a great sense of how special the vintage is shaping up to be.

These last 2017s are our final and, we think, best offerings from this classic Oregon year. First, Chardonnay from biodynamically farmed Brick House. We’ve been lucky to work with this fruit for a few years now, it’s special. Then Pinot Noirs from Armstrong, just down the road from Brick House, and Temperance Hill, high in the Eola Hills, vines there from 1983.

These wines are made in small quantities. Mailing list members get first access to the wines and special pricing during the pre-release offer period.

Do not miss this offer. Sign up for the Vincent list.
