THE WINE
Nothing that we farm is flat. Great grapes covet optimal exposure, drainage, and elevation. Arcus Vineyard is our most dramatic site, steep, rocky, and home to rich, red, Jory soil. Up there, things are wild and diverse and we farm it accordingly, with zero herbicides and sometimes donning special footwear to navigate the incredible inclines. Ad Alta showcases the very best of this vineyard, made from a unique selection of fruit from the highest-set vines. It’s a wine that reflects its unique upbringing, showing tension and rustic qualities. Welcome to the top of the Dundee Hills.

THE WINERY
In 1993, Archery Summit set its sights on creating wines of real purpose in the Willamette Valley. Since, the Dundee Hills winery has helped establish the region as the cradle of cooler-climate American wine. Winemaker Ian Burch and his team achieve bar-raising wines by way of earned instincts—the familiarity gained from many shared vintages, tending sites they know personally.Thirty years on, Archery Summit proudly considers itself the stewards of someplace truly special, with unparalleled potential. The winegrowing stresses organic and biodynamic farming, with zero tolerance for herbicide, nurturing the land and yielding a rousing lineup of estate Pinot Noirs.
