Humble | Sustainable | Delicious
We make sustainable wine because it tastes better and it ensures that our work does no harm to the land, the people, or the greater community. An accumulation of small decisions in the vineyard and winery, from cover cropping to our long-standing commitment to screwcap closures keep us deeply engaged and actively making the purest wines possible.
B-Corp certified in 2017, Patton Valley joins a community of over 2000 businesses meeting the highest standards of overall social and environmental performance and accountability and aspires to use business to solve social and environmental problems.
When they purchased the property in 1995, Monte Pitt and Dave Chen had been dreaming of planting Pinot noir in Oregon for over 10 years. At the crest of the hill, the 72-acre abandoned hillside orchard, overlooking the Patton Valley, in the small and unlikely town of Gaston, would provide the perfect site for the original 24 acres of the Patton Valley Estate Vineyard.
Today, the vineyard is 30 acres of clonally-diverse Pinot noir, Gamay, and Chenin blanc and our mission remains unchanged; to responsibly and sustainably grow the Willamette Valley’s finest grapes, and make beautiful wines that reflect the character of the land and of the people who produce them.
Leading our efforts is our Winemaker and Vineyard Manager, Derek Einberger, who joined us in the summer of 2010. Becoming a co-owner in 2013, his style of production, from root to fruit to glass, mirrors that of the overarching ethic of Patton Valley: a light, but deliberate hand.
Wineries with this tag are a certified B Corporation. B Corps are a different company structure that balances purpose with profit by being ethical, communal, honest, sustainable, and responsible.
Starting your own business is hard, especially in the wine industry where there are so many uncontrolled variables. Wineries earn this tag if the current owners and operators are also the founders.
Sustainable practices help reduce the impact of farming, manufacturing, and other industries. To earn this tag, wineries or the vineyards they source from are certified by third party organizations.
