The entire winery is dedicated fully and solely to displaying the nature of Pinot Noir that is derived from where it is grown. In each vineyard a unique combination of geology, topography, elevation, aspect to the sun, degree of slope, type of water, age of vine, clonal material, flora and fauna that come together to make up the concept that is referred to as terroir. All our vineyards are either organically or sustainably farmed to produce textures, aromatics and flavors that are specific to the site from which they are born. Our goal is to work with unique vineyards that have wide ranging natures so that we can showcase a broad range of Oregon Pinot Noir capabilities.
In February, 2000 Patricia Green Cellars came into existence. At the time it was a radical notion that one of the small handful of female winemakers in the state would leave her day job, purchase an existing winery and vineyard and begin a winery under her own name. That was 18 years ago, times have changed and Patty unexpectedly passed away in late 2017 leaving behind a legacy of soulful, vineyard-based Pinot Noir winemaking. Her memory, passion and skill live on in the people and place she left behind.
Patricia Green Cellars enthusiastically and unapologetic produces more individual bottlings of Pinot Noir than any winery in America.
