The Library Release of the Inaugural 2016 Lingua Franca Estate Pinot Noir
Larry Stone, Thomas Savre, and Dominique Lafon first partnered after overseeing the now world-famous Seven Springs Vineyard. Having tasted wines sourced from Seven Springs since the early 90s, Larry felt certain that this small pocket within the Eola-Amity Hills was a special place, unlike no other in the Willamette Valley.
He felt so confident that when a plot of land was offered for sale next door, he didn’t hesitate. In fact, he auctioned off his entire personal wine collection as part of the down payment with plans to plant a vineyard.
When Dominique learned that Larry secured the property, and had already planted the 66 acres of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, he recommended that they start producing wine together. Thomas agreed to join them and turn its sloping hills and ideal east-facing aspect into the great wine of Lingua Franca Estate Vineyard.
This year, we celebrate the five-year anniversary of the first bottling of our Estate Pinot Noir. Half a decade later, we continue to be captivated by the youth and quality of the first award-winning wine that was blended, labeled, and released as Lingua Franca Estate Pinot Noir.
