THE WINE
While our Chardonnay program has always been dynamic, we got the opportunity to diversify the clones in 2017. Through his tie to Cameron Winery, Tyson sourced Draper cuttings from Abbey Ridge Vineyard (thank you, Bill Wayne!) and grafted two blocks onto our site. Not only did this allow us to double our Chardonnay program, but it introduced to Four Winds a unique and gorgeous clone with a history of making some of Oregon’s finest chardonnays. This bottling is comprised of an all Draper blend that reflects the ongoing history of Chardonnay in both our cellar and our region.

THE WINERY
Crowley Wines produces 3,400 cases annually. Our small size allows for a hands-on approach from vineyard to barrel. We farm and manage the Four Winds Vineyard and work closely with our team of growers to achieve the uniqueness of each site. At the heart of our winemaking is the search for transparency and expression of place.
