In the 1970s, on Worden Hill Road, Pinot noir was planted on its “own roots,” eschewing the disease-resistant rootstock used by most today. This is true of our estate vineyard, the original Dundee Hills Vineyard planted between 1974 and 1976. Through meticulous farming of our estate vineyard (Demeter Biodynamic® certified) three acres of those own-rooted Pinot noir vines, planted to the Pommard and Dijon 115 selections, thrive and are the primary source of our 2021 cuvée.

Winderlea is a boutique winery specializing in the production of small lots of Pinot noir and Chardonnay. Established in 2005 by winegrowers Bill Sweat and Donna Morris, Winderlea purchased the original Dundee Hills Vineyard, a 20-acre property, planted in the 1970s. Obsessed with producing its wines and running its business as sustainably as possible, Winderlea is one of only 60 Demeter Biodynamic-certified vineyards in the United States. Winderlea was also one of the first five wineries globally to achieve B Corp Certification, demonstrating its commitment to sustainable practices throughout its business and putting people and place before profits.
