Deciding to turn the family turkey farm into a vineyard and build a new state-of-the-art winery in Oregon’s wine country, some might have thought Bill and Cathy Stoller had taken leave of their senses. But, as co-founders of Chehalem with Harry Peterson-Nedry, the couple already had some experience in the matter and decided to build a hi-tech winery, using exclusively solar power. An estate vineyard was planted in the Dundee Hills of Yamhill County, and dedicated to producing top notch Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.
Join us as we talk with Bill Stoller about the different growing regions and AVAs of Oregon, its winegrowing history, as well as its geography and soil conditions all of which lead to making world class Pinot Noir. Bill also discusses Stoller’s interest in making their winery green, and what goes into using the latest in technology to produce fine wine.
