The name “Eyrie” comes from the nests that the Red Tailed Hawks make on the tops of fir trees around the vineyard.
Brief History of Eyrie: In 1965, 25-year-old David Lett moved to Oregon with 3000 grape cuttings and planted the first Pinot Noir and Chardonnay grapes in the Willamette Valley and the first Pinot Gris grapes in America. In 1975, Eyrie produced the first American Pinot Noir which competed successfully with the Pinot Noirs of Burgundy. The vineyard grows their grapes without the use of herbicides, pesticides or fungicides. Today, Eyrie Vineyards is producing around 10,000 cases annually.
