Crowley Wines
14000 NE Quarry Road
 Newberg, OR 97132

Crowley Wines was founded in 2005 with a focus on transparent, terroir-driven winemaking. Starting at the source, they favor older clones of Chardonnay and the classic Wadenswil and Pommard Pinot noir clones due to their late ripening nature and acid retention.

They work with family owned vineyards and prefer cooler, high elevation sites and are committed to growers with non-irrigated and low impact farming. They are members of the Deep Roots Coalition and their primary vineyard sources are LIVE certified or certified organic. In the winery their highest priority is to create the most direct evidence of both vintage and place, while making elegant and exciting wines.

This means (wine geek alert!) minimal acid additions, no extraction enzyme, employing native yeasts, extended aging in mostly neutral oak and minimal fining or filtration.  They value purity of expression over stylized wines and hold essential the belief that we cannot improve on nature.
