Big Table Farm

1Clare Carver and Brian Marcy moved from Napa to the Willamette Valley in 2006, with the goal of making art and managing livestock and growing wine on their 70-acre farm.  The winery’s name reflects the couple’s desire to create a gracious and welcoming table to share quality, hand-crafted food and wine.  Wines are made in tiny lots, naturally fermented with ambient yeasts, gently handled, and only minimally sulfured.  Vineyard-designated wines are limited to restaurants only.  Clare creates new hand-letterpressed labels for the wines every year, but previous labels posted here demonstrate their lovely æsthetic.

Brooks Winery

imagesHaving spent some time traveling and working in Beaujolais, Portland native Jimi Brooks returned to Oregon to found Brooks Winery in 1998.  When Jimi died unexpectedly in 2004, the winery’s ownership passed to his then-8-year-old son Pascal.  Today, under the leadership of Jimi’s sister Janie and his longtime winemaker-friend Chris Williams, Brooks winery continues to practice Jimi’s vision of biodynamic farming to produce expressive, balanced Riesling & Pinot Noir.

Illahe Vineyards

horsedrawn1horses2The winery explains that ILLAHE, pronouned “Ill-Uh-Hee,” is Chinook jargon for “place,” “earth,” or “soil.”  The winery aims to make wine “as naturally as possible, from soil to bottle.”  The wines are small-lot, sustainably grown, dry-farmed, hand-picked, horse-drawn, basket-pressed, and unfiltered.  The winery is solar-powered, LIVE (low-input viticulture & enology) certified, and salmon-safe.

As admirable as their farming practice is, it is the quality of the wines that brings the payoff for all of that hard work.  These Pinot Noir and dry white wines offer pure & distinctive varietal character and authentic, delicious expression of a sense of place.
