Maloof Wines Temperance Hill Pinot Gris 2019 750ml
Dai Crisp (farmer) went to school at OSU for theatre and photo-journalism, and then earned a MFA at UC Irvine. After returning to Oregon from his studies, he went on to “do what you do when you leave acting school” and began working vineyards in the southern end of the Willamette Valley. He planted his family’s farm, Wren Vineyard, in 1985 and never looked back. Always farming organically, he began doing vineyard management for a number of well-regarded wineries in the area. He has been at the helm of Temperance Hill for the past 20 years and is considered to be one of the best wine growers in the state. He and his wife PK started their own wine label, Lumos Wines, in 2000.
Temperance Hill is a cooler site, consisting of varying slopes and exposures. The vineyard looks straight out over the Van Duzer corridor, the large break in the Oregon coast line, receiving the full effects of the famed afternoon winds that pull in cooler air from the Pacific ocean, allowing great ripening capabilities in the area.
