Changes at St Innocent, Zenith and Failla

News Release from St. Innocent Winery

Mark Vlossak, founder and Winemaker of St. Innocent Winery, will celebrate his 30th year making award winning single vineyard designated Pinot noirs in Oregon. To help mark this milestone, there are some changes afoot at St. Innocent. We are "Returning to our Roots”!

St. Innocent Winery has purchased a 47.5 acre property in the South Salem hills at 10052 Enchanted Way SE, Jefferson, OR. We are immersed in designing and constructing a new winery. The production facility will have many of the features of our current facility: gravity reception and bottling, and underground barrel storage built into the hillside. Our Tasting Room will be expanded with more diverse experiences for our customers at an ideal location close to the I-5 corridor. Surrounded by two natural ravines and a two-acre grassy hillside looking at our own private pond (stocked with bass), we will offer a variety of tasting options, picnic lunches, and an opportunity to spend a relaxing afternoon surrounded by nature and vines. Our new Estate vineyard will initially have 15 acres of grape vines - about 60% Chardonnay (Dijon-clone) and remaining acres with Pinot noir 777 and Pommard.

We have sold our current Winery facility to our partners at Zenith Vineyard, LLC, Tim and Kari Ramey, as well as part of Membership interest in the LLC. Our new property is wholly owned by St. Innocent Winery.
Over the next 3 years Mark plans to decrease the amount of wine he makes from approximately 10,000 cases to our sweet spot of 6,500 cases. We will continue to make vineyard-designated Pinot noir from four of Oregon’s greatest terroirs: Freedom Hill, Temperance Hill, Momtazi, and Shea Vineyard. We will also produce Chardonnay and Pinot blanc from Freedom Hill as well as small lots of sparkling wine and Riesling for sale at our new Tasting Room. Our own vineyard, Enchanted Way Vineyard, will come into production in 2021.

Our new Tasting Room will open May 1, 2018. Until then we welcome our customers at our present location at 5657 Zena Road NW, Salem, OR 97304. Email us at info@stinnocentwine.com or call 503-378-1526. Open Daily 11AM - 5PM.

Mark Vlossak, Winemaker

So which pinot with bass? :)
