A wine's flavor bouquet speaks volumes about its origin: pear flavor hints at fruit-farm beginnings, flowery tastes denote pollen-producing soil, and oaky notes suggest wine that was squeezed from an antique desk.

Named Winery of the Year in 2010 by Snooth.com, Lange Estate Winery bottles tempting bouquets and visionary varietals amid lush woodlands and grandiose mountain ranges. A team of wine wizards forges flavorful reds that reflect the rich terroir and racy whites made without malolactic fermentation, which makes for enhanced fruitiness, balanced acids, and subdued tendencies to spread gossip about shapely bottles of water.
Vintage votaries can take a trip to the tasting room, where grape gurus will lead tasters through a flight of six Reserve-level wines, such as pinot noir, pinot gris, chardonnay, and more, complemented by a logo wineglass that sippers keep. Afterward, piqued palates can continue tasting treks by choosing a bottle to bring home, such as the fruity 2010 pinot gris Reserve ($22), the 2009 Willamette Valley chardonnay ($16), or the 2009 pinot noir Reserve ($18), which comes in a bantam 375-milliliter bottle ideal for sending miniature missives out to sea.
Lange Estate Winery is certified by Salmon-Safe and LIVE, and it cultivates crops in a sustainable and environmentally responsible manner to help maintain a healthy ecosystem and allay grapes' tendency to litter. In addition, the winery also contributes to a variety of charitable organizations to ensure each tantalizing bouquet blossoms with notes of philanthropic flavor.
