Our Cuvée Constatin is a nod to the original Flâneur.  When renowned poet Charles Baudelaire first wrote about the Flâneur, the connoisseur of modern life, Constantin Guys was his inspiration.  Constantin was a stroller, observer and painter of the crowds in the streets of Paris in the mid-19th century.

Vineyard Notes
25% La Belle Promenade Vineyard AVA: Chehalem Mountains • Elevation: 700-820 Ft. • Exposure: North East/South West Soils: Volcanic (Jory/ Nekia) • Native Yeast Fermentation • Farming Practices: Dry farmed/ Organic Principles - La Belle Promenade is comprised of 33 acres of volcanic soils, with the western portion of the site consisting of a thick layer of fractured basalt. The vineyard was planted in 2014 to 26 acres of Pinot Noir, 5 acres of Chardonnay and 2 acres of Pinot Meunier. Due in part to its high elevation, this site allows for great diversity in concert with our other estate vineyard. 75% Kindred Vineyard AVA: Eola-Amity • Elevation: 450 Ft. • Exposure: South East • Soils: Volcanic/ decomposed basalt • Clones: 10+ clones of Chardonnay, planted row by row, co-harvested - Native Yeast Fermentation • Farming Practices: Sustainable - This site is planted row-by-row to a range of clones, collected by its owner, Craig Williams, throughout his years working in the California wine industry. The mixed clones co-harvested and co-fermented and produce exceptional complexity, layers and tension in the resulting finished wines.
