Our 2014 Pinot noir Sullivan is the product of the warmest growing season on record in Oregon. Our vineyard observed bud break April 11 and this was followed by beautiful gentle rains throughout April and May.  

Bloom occurred the first week of June with verásion following in early August.  Our fruit showed incredible flavors and structure at harvest with higher than expected yields. 

Fairsing Vineyard’s Pinot noir Sullivan is a beautifully lithe combination of Pommard (55%), Dijon 777 (20%) and Wadenswil (25%) selections from the east portion of our vineyard.

We honored Mike McNally’s paternal grandmother Winifred Sullivan with this bottling. This delicate and lively wine offers a tangy range of red fruit flavors that linger easily. Soft. floral and refreshing on the finish.  

Aged 10 months in 30% new French oak barrels with a limited production of 200 cases.

Fairsing Vineyard is managed sustainably in Oregon’s Yamhill- Carlton American Viticulture Area (AVA) with 38 acres of Pinot noir and five acres of Chardonnay in production. 

The vineyard is nestled inside an 80-acre Certified Family Forest distinguished by biodiversity, varied topography, and panoramic views of the Northern Willamette Valley.  

Fairsing Vineyard is a certified member of the Low Input Viticulture and Enology (LIVE) Association, the Salmon Safe program and the American Tree Farm System.
