Vineyards

Acrobat wines are sourced from a spectrum of Oregon vineyards, spanning the three classic Western AVA’s – Willamette Valley, Umpqua Valley and Rogue Valley. Each vineyard and AVA have distinct characteristics and provide their own flavor. This diverse geographical selection was done by design, giving Acrobat wines a balanced flavor profile of the state of Oregon. The map below is a sample of our partnering vineyards.

King Estate

Willamette Valley

King Estate has 1,033 Biodynamic®-certified acres in southwest Eugene at the southern tip of the Willamette Valley AVA. A working farm, King Estate has 465 acres under vine: 143 of Pinot Noir, 314 of Pinot Gris, and the balance in other grapes. Another 26 acres feature orchards, gardens, lavender and bee hives.
The estate has been certified organic since 2002 and was certified by Demeter USA as Biodynamic in 2016, making King Estate the largest Biodynamic vineyard in the U.S. (Biodynamic farms operate as holistic, self-sustaining ecosystems.)

The estate’s location along the 44th parallel is shared by such famous wine-growing regions as Bordeaux, France, and Tuscany, Italy. At an altitude of 740 to 1,200 feet above sea level, and with the west-east canyon formed by the Lorane Valley, the estate’s grapes benefit from long summer days with optimal ripening conditions, and cool evening temperatures moderated by the prevailing Northwest winds that roll in from the Pacific Ocean. Ideal weather conditions are complemented by the site’s slope and the Bellpine and Jory clay-loam soils – rich in iron, well-draining and with excellent moisture retention requiring no additional irrigation.

In 2016 the estate celebrated its 25th anniversary. It is owned and farmed by the King family to this day.

Layne Vineyard

Rogue Valley

Roger and son Cameron Layne own this 35-acre vineyard in Grants Pass, Oregon.

Today, with 28 acres under vine, the Laynes have added Riesling, Pinot Noir and other varieties of grapes. The vineyard sits on graceful slopes deep in the Illinois Valley of the Applegate Valley AVA, a sub-AVA of the Rogue Valley. The climate is warm and dry with cool nights at an elevation of 1,550 to 1,700 feet.

Kennel Vineyard

Willamette Valley

Grower Jeremy Kennel’s family has farmed in the Willamette Valley for five generations. The vineyard is situated halfway between Corvallis and Monmouth on farmland purchased by the Kennel family back in 1962. (The site was previously home to Camp Adair, a massive Army training camp established in 1942 and decommissioned after World War II.) The family decided to diversify into grapes in 2007, planting on a south-facing slope that benefits from warm mornings and early spring growth. Today Kennel has 25 acres of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. We have been sourcing fruit from Kennel since 2010.
