A Little About Us
Some of our pride & Joy
Quality wine is created in the vineyard.
NorrisMcKinley, is a single vineyard, hand-crafted pinot noir produced in the Ribbon Ridge AVA, a premier Oregon Pinot Noir producing area. Believing that world-class wines from Ribbon Ridge can only be achieved through artisanal methods that are both highly labor intensive but also sustainable, the McKinley’s insist on attention to detail and standards for quality and operations. From selected barrels of wine made from Ribbon Ridge fruit, NorrisMcKinley is blended to create the style and elegance that is uniquely Ribbon Ridge. The resulting limited, high quality production is available only to family, friends and club members. A truly “cult” wine for the sophisticated “Pinotphile”.
Peter always had a high interest in wines and wine making and Liz was looking for a way to get back to her roots, having descended from a long line of farmers. Both were looking for their “heaven on earth” near a large city but far from the hectic lifestyle that exists where they currently reside in Southern California. The beautiful Willamette Valley satisfied all of their desires. Robert and his twin, Madeline, round out the NorrisMcKinley team.
