Located in the Chehaelem Mountains, a natural haven for raptors, Raptor Ridge specializes in hand-grown wines from individual vineyards located throughout the Willamette Valley. With a long history and numerous 90+ scores, Raptor Ridge is one of Oregon's pre-eminent producers and has, among many other accolades, been named a Top 100 Winery by Food and Wine magazine.
Raptor Ridge's Rosé draws its 100% Pinot Noir fruit from two Willamette Valley vineyards - Bellevue Cross in McMinnville and Zenith in Eola-Amity Hills. These volcanic vineyards are farmed specifically to produce grapes for this rosé bottling rather than as an after-thought of red wine production. It has a beautiful pale blush color and complex floral notes of rose petal and orange rind, with honeydew melon. On the palate, there is a nice balance of sweetness and acidity with flavors of watermelon.
