Power and elegance are the hallmarks of this wine from volcanic soils with large basalt rocks. The Eastern slope of these blocks slows the ripening process, protecting the grapes from the western sun.

Appassionata Estate began as a passion project for the renowned German winemaker Ernst Loosen. Never one to merely dream, Erni launched a small, collaborative project with J. Christopher Wines in 2005, bottling a very limited, highly selected Pinot Noir that he named Appassionata. A few vintages later, he put down roots in Oregon, purchasing 40 acres in the Chehalem Mountains, planting the Appassionata Vineyard, and building the winery. His long-term vision was to establish an enduring family wine estate, dedicated to growing and producing exquisitely expressive wines with extraordinary ageability. It has been two decades in the making, but that vision is now being fully realized.
