Grapes: Kerner (40%), Friulano (30%), Gruner Vetliner (30%).

Maceration is a white blend developed to allow for creativity, experimentation, and flexibility in the cellar each year as Johan continues to play and explore the potential of many of the non-traditional white grapes from the vineyard. With the Gruner Veltliner, Friulano and Kerner all being prime candidates for skin contact, they are trialing and employing different methods to study the wide range of expressions that  can be achieved with these grapes.

Johan Vineyards resides on 85 acres of gently sloping estate vineyards in the heart of the Willamette Valley. Adjacent to the Van Duzer corridor, our vineyards are blessed with afternoon ocean breezes and cool evening temperatures that are ideal for
ripening Burgundian varietals. Elevations range from approximately 180 to 380 feet. Soils are Helvetia, Steiwer, and Santiam silts which were formed primarily from ancient marine sedimentary rock. Johan Vineyards is passionate about making premium wines that showcase the estate vineyards.If one starts with excellent grapes, handles the fruit carefully, and intervenes in the wine making process only when necessary, the wine should be great. These wines offer elegance,
balance, complexity, and ageability. All wines are made in small, hand-crafted batches to insure quality and enjoyment. We produce Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Pinot Gris, and Vin Gris.
