AMITY VINEYARDS ESTATE 

Amity Vineyards was the first vineyard planted in the Eola-Amity Hills in 1971. The own-rooted, dry-farmed grapes have dug deep into the ground, past the thin topsoil to access ancient volcanic and marine sediment soils that give these wines a unique sense of place. Our 2013 select cluster Riesling is taken from these vines. It takes a very particular set of circumstances for the healthy botrytis fungus to set in and concentrate flavors, sugar, and acidity allowing us to create a dessert wine. 2013 was one of those years. This wine has bottle-aged for six years and will not only drink great right now but will age for decades to come.

A Storied Vineyard

What makes Amity so unique are the nearly 50-year-old own-rooted vines. They’ve had decades to work through the thin topsoil to dig deep into the ground and access these ancient nutrient-deprived soils. The combination of the vine's age, the absence of artificial inputs, and dry farming practices mean they are naturally low yielding. When vines have a lower crop load they can devote more resources to the grapes which leads to a better concentration of flavor.
