For Battle Creek Cellars wines we’ve curated Pinot Noir from some of the most exciting vineyardsin the state to create a wine that compromises nothing in quality and enjoyment.
Battle creek vineyard
Established 1998, Turner, OR
Located on a south-facing slope in a sweet spot for growing Pinot Noir, Battle Creek Vineyard is nestled into the mid-Willamette River Basin, in the southeast corner of Salem, Oregon. Planted is 110 acres of 100% Pinot Noir laid out in small blocks planted in 1998.
The clay components of the volcanic basalt soils enable it to store water, so supplemental irrigation is used only when necessary. Sufficient water supply coupled with good canopies help protect the grapes and allow for gentle ripening.

Planted in the Ribbon Ridge AVA within the Willamette Valley, the smallest sub-appellation of the Valley, the Roe Vineyard is entirely dry-farmed without the use of irrigation. Soils are classified as the Willakenzie series, a mix of marine sediment and soil eroded from the Oregon coast during continental subduction.
