McKinley Ribbon Ridge is located in the Ribbon Ridge AVA, a sub-appellation of the Willamette Valley AVA. Ribbon Ridge is 22 miles southwest of Portland, 4 miles northwest of Dundee, and 40 miles east of the Pacific Ocean.
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.
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.
We are always looking to hear from friends and potential customers!
