Freedom Hill vineyard is located in the Coast Range just south of Dallas, OR. The soil type is known as Bellpine, which is sedimentary in origin. The fruit from our 2.85 acre block is wholly Pommard clone. The vineyard was originally planted in 1980. Wines from this site were once the firmest and most structured that they worked with. After replanting from phylloxera devestation the site was refitted with a verticle shoot position trellis. This switch from a hanging trellis affords more shading of the fruit area. The less exposed barries have thinner skins and lighter tannin levels which allow the resulting wine to be lush and approachable at an earlier age. Approximately 340 cases are produced. The vineyard is owned and managed by Dan and Helen Dusschee.
