Grapes: Zweigelt

While the Zweigelt grape may sound like an exotic variety for us here in the US, it is the most widely planted red grape in the country of Austria.  Wines produced from this grape are often bright, playful and quaffable.  When the Johan team grafted this variety into the vineyard in 2017, they had no idea that they would be able to achieve a complex and compelling expression while still remaining juicy, nervy, and oh, so drinkable!

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.
