Lingua Franca LLC

Lingua Franca Vineyards

The Willamette Valley is an ideal location to grow Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Its average seasonal temperatures, long daylight hours in the summer months, and total annual rainfall resemble the conditions in Burgundy, where the fruit attains uncontested perfection. All of our work is guided by respect for the environment, encouraging healthy diversity of life around and among us.

Lingua Franca Estate 

Our home estate vineyard, the 66-acre Lingua Franca Estate vineyard, is situated on Lone Star Road next door to two iconic vineyard sites in the Eola-Amity Hills: Seven Springs and Lone Star Vineyard. The site is rich in Jory, Jory-Geldermann, and Nekia soil, and the vineyard is a combination of 18 different Dijon clones and heritage clones and rootstock, sourced from specific vineyards when possible. The parameters here are perfect, with eastern exposure, morning sun, moderate cooling winds, slopes of 12-20% throughout the vineyard, and excellent drainage.

Bunker Hill Vineyard

Bunker Hill Vineyard is a critically acclaimed vineyard site located in the South Salem Hills area, just beyond the city limits with a view of the Willamette River flowing below. Planted exclusively to chardonnay, the vineyard sits at 600-feet elevation with a western exposure and strong cooling breezes. The vine material includes some of the earliest plantings of Dijon clone Chardonnay 76 in Oregon, planted by the same Joel Myer who replanted Seven Springs that same year:1995. The fruit sourced from this highly lauded vineyard site is fermented, bottled and released as our Bunker Hill Chardonnay. Our 2016 vintage was selected as #34 on Wine Spectator's Top 100 list in 2018 and since then, this is one of our first wines to sell out each year.
