It’s been a busy week since we released the Spring Pre-release offer. However, it’s not too late to get on the Vincent list and get access to the new wines coming out this spring, at special pre-release pricing that’s the best I offer.

And don’t forget, if you’re on the list, you can schedule a personal tasting at the winery with me in the Eola Hills of the Willamette Valley. No cost, but you have to sign up for the list.
Twice a year we offer mailing list members special access to our newest upcoming wines. These prerelease offers feature the best pricing we give all year, with free shipping options. You get first access to our wines, just for being on our list.
The next prerelease offer will come in early February 2020. Wines will include:
2018 Pinot Blanc Willamette Valley “Tardive”
2018 Chardonnay Willamette Valley “Tardive”
2018 Gamay Eola-Amity Hills Bjornson Vineyard

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!

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.
In the 2017 vintage we made our first Pinot Gris, but not as a white wine. The grape has some color in the skins and it’s somewhat common to see Rose or Raimato wines made from Pinot Gris, with limited skin contact to give a delicate color without much tannin.
Instead of white or rose, we went all in to create a red wine from Pinot Gris, what we dub the Gris Noir. It’s still light in color but darker than the pinkish hue of most rose. Close your eyes though and you’d think you were drinking a red wine, with a peppery berry flavor and a solid amount of fine tannin
We released the wine last fall and it was unexpectedly popular, which was great because we’d already planned to make more in 2018 (and we did). Unfortunately the 2017 is sold out but there is more coming this fall with the 2018 release currently in barrel.
For now, check out this article from Sophia Bennett in the Eugene Register-Guard all about unusual skin fermented wines, including our Pinot Gris “Noir”. The pre-release offer to mailing list members will go out on August 1, and it will give you first chance on the ‘2018 Pinot Gris as well as all other new release. Highlights include the final Vincent releases from the 2017 vintage: Chardonnay Brick House Vineyard, Pinot Noir Armstrong Vineyard and Pinot Noir Temperance Hill Vineyard.
