Our Wines

Blakeslee Vineyard Estate produces award-winning Oregon Pinot Noir wines, Riesling, Chardonnay, Rosé of Pinot Noir and White Pinot Noir. Pinot Noir vines planted on our east-facing slopes are ideally situated to produce reds of complexity, structure and finesse; these wines capture the elusive balance of fruit and earth, mineral and aromatics, that characterize the best of Oregon Pinot Noir Wines. From our flagship Estate wines to the limited bottlings that reflect the most outstanding barrels of each vintage, all our wines demonstrate layers of complexity and depth.

In addition, Blakeslee Vineyard Estate is one of only a handful of wineries that produce a white Pinot Noir. Often used in sparkling wine production, Pinot Noir grapes make a white wine of tremendous character and zest. Our Riesling and Chardonnays — and our limited Rosé of Pinot Noir bottlings — round out our offerings with a selection of crisp, lighter wines.

The wines we tried were all delicious. We were treated kindly by the staff. It’s a beautiful place, and their white pilot noire was really interesting!

Lindsay M, Yelp

We love Pinot Noir in particular but were impressed with everything we tasted and had THE BEST Estate Pinot

Paul S., Yelp

The wine is exceptional! Pinot’s are a specialty…but I bought a few bottles of their Chardonnay too!  Nice job Blakeslee!!!

Michael N., Yelp

Their white pinot noir is incredible and award winning. Their Sheila Pinot Noir… well, we just can’t buy enough of it.
