November 13 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm

We’ve done it again!

We’ve sourced a Vinum55 exclusive wine- just for you!

Join us for a Helioterra tasting with owner + winemaker Anne Hubatch!

Did you know that every year we travel to Willamette, Oregon to attend the annual Pinot Noir barrel auction? The Pinot Noir Auction is a trade-only auction honoring the pioneering spirit of the Willamette Valley. For two days, industry influencers attend a series of special tastings and gatherings, culminating in a live auction.

Guests have the opportunity to acquire an exceptional lot of one-of-a-kind Pinot Noir and an unforgettable impression of the Oregon wine community. All proceeds from the auction support the marketing, branding and education efforts of the Willamette Valley Wineries Association.
Well…..
We went.
We tasted.
We bought.
We conquered.
And now our super special, one-of-a-kind barrel has been bottled and we are BEYOND excited to share it with all of you! Attend any one of our events, across all three locations, for the opportunity to taste our Vinum 55 exclusive Pinot Noir, along side the rest of Anne’s incredible line up.

5 cases. 60 bottles. THAT’S IT. Made just for our Vinum 55 members! No one in the world will have an opportunity to taste or buy this wine!

About Helioterra

Helioterra Wines is a small, artisan producer of Northwest wines. Our wines are pretty, elegant and graceful in style. Winemaker Anne Ebenretier Hubatch partners with exceptional Oregon and Washington vineyard growers to craft wines that demonstrate the best that the Northwest offers. Anne’s winemaking style is focused and precise; yet with a gentle, minimalist approach. Our grapes are picked to capture peak flavor and fermented with little manipulation. Our reds are fermented with native yeasts and aged for a year in French oak barrels; unracked. Our whites are whole cluster pressed and fermented with a variety of yeasts in a mix of neutral barrel, stainless steel and concrete egg. The name Helioterra draws on geological inspirations, symbolizing Heliolite, the Oregon state gemstone (more commonly known as Sun Stone). Helio and Terra combine the Greek words for sun and earth, natural partners for grape growing.

Vinum 55 Exclusive Wine 

2016 Helioterra ‘Barrel 21’ Lias Vineyard Pinot Noir

Tasting Notes:

Helioterra Pinot Noirs are a study in elegance, balance and grace. This single barrel from Lias Vineyard was the best barrel of our cellar. It exemplifies beautiful red fruit notes, layered with dusty sandalwood and a touch of bergamot and black tea, finishing with a lingering of red raspberry and graham. Lia’s Vineyard is in the Chehalem Mountains.

Our block at Lias Vineyard was 115 planted in 1999 on 101-14 rootstock. Vine spacing is five feet with nine foot rows. Planting is on a bench that has a gentle southeast slope. Soil is a transitional section of the vineyard with some volcanic origin, Jory soil, but predominantly sedimentary soil. There are a lot of rocks and boulders in this section of the vineyard. While 115 clone is capable of producing a complete wine, the variability of soils and exposure in this block lends complexity to this single clonal election. This barrel #21 of Pinot Noir was 20% whole cluster and native yeast fermented. It was pumped over once and then punched down once a day. It was then aged 13 months in a neutral French oak barrel. This wine is unfined and unfiltered.

Hendry Tasting

About Hendry

The Hendry family has been farming the same vineyard in Napa since 1939. The lessons learned in more than 75 harvests provide them with a high level of knowledge and a unique connection to the land. The Hendry Ranch is composed of 203 acres situated in the hills north west of Napa, which include 114 acres of vineyard. This latitude and location in the valley experiences substantial marine influence, and allows them to grow 11 different varieties, distributed among their many vineyard blocks. All Hendry wines are made only from estate grapes, and are crafted to highlight the terroir of the vineyard.

George W. Hendry was an agronomy professor and taught at both the University of California Berkely and at Davis. He was a man of many talents and interests including agriculture, photography, travel and history. He traveled the world in the 1920’s studying and then documenting numerous agricultural practices. Later he studied the plant materials embedded in old California Spanish style adobe buildings – documenting early varietals of wheat and wheat pests in California.

George W and his wife Margaret purchased the old Sigris property in 1939. Unfortunately George died in 1944 leaving Margaret to raise their two sons, George and Andrew and simultaneously continue to oversee the ranch. George went on to earn his undergraduate and master degrees from U.C. Berkeley and eventually become one of the world’s leading designers of cyclotrons (often used in hospitals to treat cancer). Despite his time commitments in designing and working with cyclotrons, George has also been very involved with the ranch all his life. The first vintage of Hendry Family wines was from 1992.

Hendry’s vineyards are located just north of the Carneros border; the property has several different soil types and micro climates. As a result all parts of their vineyards are block designated based on these characteristics. This allows Hendry to really micromanage their wines and produce the type of wine best suited to the block’s specific characteristics. There are 203 acres on site, of which 117 are planted. The vineyards are then separated into 49 unique blocks, each of which is managed and controlled separately both in the vineyard and in the winery.
