A favorite of Wine Spectator and other media outlets, Argyle Winery handpicks small batches of grapes and crushes them the next day to ensure award-winning flavor in all of its vino varietals. Take a fermentation-loving friend to experience a seven-course sipping session including the peachy Nuthouse chardonnay and its pear-kissed older brother, the Spirithouse chardonnay. Three pinot noir varieties—the Reserve, Nuthouse, and Spirithouse—range in flavor from rich raspberry and earthy spiciness to a subtle yet rich floral bouquet that invokes memories of kissing your prom date and then devouring her corsage. Finish the tasteful excursion by popping the cork on Knudsen Vineyard brut and Blanc de Blancs to toast a successful tasting and inspire bubbly after-after-dinner conversation.
In 2001, Thane Hawkins, an avid outdoorsman with an acute case of wanderlust, found himself absconding from a lucrative career in the visual-effects industry to the Willamette Valley, where the area’s signature pinot noir inspired him to start handcrafting his own red wines. Relationships with regional growers soon followed, as did a job backing fellow winemaker Chris Lubberstedt, who encouraged Hawkins to conjure his own robust creations. Born from a passion for Rhone- and Bordeaux-style varietals, Hawkins’ 2009 syrah, pinot gris, and sangiovese wines have won gold and silver medals from the Newport Wine Competition.
An emphasis on honoring each wine’s true character anchors the cellar's philosophy, and Hawkins only uses fresh, plump grapes from northwestern vineyards. This unwavering devotion ensures swirls and sniffs in the winery’s brand-new tasting room yield distinctive aromas informed by each wine's individual terroir.

Eight vineyards coax fermentation from grapes under the Seufert Winery umbrella, including the certified organic and sustainable Bishop Creek Vineyard, which grows blended pinot noirs in its rich, volcanic soil. A short jaunt up into the Chehalem Mountains reveals the sun-drenched vistas of Hawk’s View Vineyard, where the thin, crisp air and colder soil imbue grapes with floral and berry flavors and the temper of a mountain goat. From their octet of properties, the discerning palates at Seufert Winery’s urban-inspired warehouse collect the best vintages for guests to sample at tastings.
All 12 of the current-release wines—save a single vintage of dolcetto in its final year of production—derive their flavor and essence from the pinot grapes that thrive on the West Coast.
