Dine with owner/winemaker Jerry Sass or Oregon’s Sass Winery
Winemaker Jerry Sass will lead us through his selection of handcrafted Pinot Gris, Pinot Blanc, and Pinot Noirs.The vineyard, first planted in 1989, is in the hills of South Salem, on land once thought unsuitable for anything but grasses or Christmas trees. Each year, the struggling vines produce tight clusters of grapes that gradually ripen during the long, dry summer. The hazy, warm days and cool nights of autumn help the fruit develop intense, complex layers of flavor and aroma that produce wines that are both rich and elegant. The soils are a well-drained, silty, red clay loam. The vines are vertically trellised and are naturally farmed with no irrigation or invasive chemicals. Sass will never produce more than 5,000 cases, because he believes the finest wines are handmade, and he wants the vineyards to fully express the complex elegance of their terroir.
