Troon Vineyard - Applegate Valley Estate
Troon Vineyard is a Biodynamic® and Regenerative Organic® Certified farm in Oregon’s Applegate Valley. They naturally craft wines to bring pleasure to your life. All Troon wines are made from Biodynamic® Certified grapes spontaneously fermented with indigenous yeasts and no additives of any kind. They avoid the use of new oak barrels to reveal each nuance of vines grown in their vineyard. They are located on the Kubli Bench, high above the Applegate River in the Siskiyou Mountains of Southern Oregon. It is a biodiverse farm of almost 100 acres. Life on their farm includes cider apples, a vegetable garden, re-wilded honeybees, sheep, chickens, wildlife, dogs, humans and, of course, grapevines. Troon Vineyard is dedicated to regenerative agriculture and they practice biodynamics in their quest to put back more than we take from our plants and soils. They believe the only route to memorable wines, that reflect the terroir of where they were grown, is to be found in the healthy soils and vines that are the foundation of biodynamic agriculture.
Winemaking at Troon is straightforward and minimalist. Their grapes are field sorted by the same vineyard crew that tended them all season. Their goal is to express their vineyards rather than winemaking techniques in their wines. All Troon Vineyard wines are fermented only with native yeasts and no commercial yeasts, acids, sugar, enzymes or additives are added to any of the wines. Their white wines are whole-cluster pressed then barrel fermented in mature French Oak barrels. For “Orange Wines” they are now using clay amphorae to allow extended skin contact after fermentation. We make a range of fun pétillant natural sparkling wines, naturally fermented in bottle. For red wines, they focus on using whole-cluster and whole berry fruit in our fermenters, then use only mature French Oak barrels for aging so that every nuance of our unique Applegate Valley fruit can express itself in their wines.
They are a new entity on a new voyage with a new mission since the arrival of owners Denise and Bryan White. Biodynamics® will reinvigorate their soils and their vines, but it is also reinvigorating us. It is those combined energies that will be expressed in their wines. Wines full of energy are exciting wines and we could not be more excited about making them. Their desire to make special wines from what they know is a vineyard, a terroir, with exceptional potential is what started us on this voyage to begin with.
The vines, the soil, the place, the wines, and the people are all becoming one.
