The 2014 McKinlay Pinot Noir Wines Offer

matt kinne mckinlay vineyards oregon pinot noirMatt Kinne is the real deal. Making handcrafted Pinot Noir from his own vineyards since 1987, Matt has always had a “hands off” approach to wine making before it was fashionable.

Steeped in the best of Burgundian tradition, he has farmed organically from the beginning, always using older oak as an aging vessel as opposed to a new oak, “spice” box approach. Indigenous yeasts from the vineyard and winery begin the fermentation naturally. Nothing is added.

If a vintage comes along that he’s not happy with, Matt has gone to the extreme of declassifying the entire vintage into just one wine, the $18 Willamette Valley, foregoing higher income in the name of doing what’s right. To him, it’s a priority that everything with the McKinlay name be of a certain high standard.

You can buy these wines with a confidence that you’re getting something real, made with sweat and integrity by a small wine farmer and his family. These qualify as “real wines made by real farmers!”
