More About Colene Clemens Vineyards
Located where the Chehalem Mountains converge with Ribbon Ridge, this 122-acre property was acquired in 2005 and first planted in 2006. With an elevation of 350 to 650 feet, this rocky, south-facing hillside is composed of marine sedimentary and volcanic basalt soils. Completely dry-farmed, the 62-acre vineyard consists of five different clones: Wädenswil, Pommard, Dijon 115, Dijon 114, Dijon 667, and Dijon 777.
The farming practices of Colene Clemens can best be described as sustainable, and they utilize organic farming whenever possible. They are firm believers in taking care of their soil, practicing crop reduction for low yields, and hand harvesting their fruit at its optimal physiological ripeness.
