Hand Crafted
Micro Lot Wines

At Benmar, we embrace a winemaking philosophy rooted in innovation and a quest for excellence. We believe that the true magic of winemaking lies in the harmonious combination of different vineyards. Our approach is to meticulously source grapes from select vineyards, each contributing its unique character and terroir to the final blend.

Our inaugural Pinot Noir exemplifies this philosophy. Sourced from two distinct vineyards - one nestled high above J Christopher in the Chehalem Mountains, and the other located in the elevated reaches of the Dundee Hills near Alexana and Nicolas-Jay. The two lots were separated until final blending where after extensive trials, we selected the wine that was a blend of both vineyards. Conventional wisdom would say to keep them separated as they are single vineyard wines from two sub-AVAs (fancy more, I can charge more money, lol) but we decided to go against the grain and bottle what we loved.

At Benmar, we're committed to pushing the boundaries of winemaking, crafting wines that defy convention, elevate the tasting experience and offer a glimpse into life in the Pacific Northwest.
