Violin Wines = 2017 Oregon PInot noir

Will Hamilton

Owner & Winemaker

Will Hamilton has been helping craft fine wine in the Willamette Valley since the 2005 vintage when he moved from the DC area to explore his intrigue for Oregon and the production side of wine. It was initially through restaurant work in high school and college that the interest for wine culture emerged, and after his first post college year as a wine importer’s sales person and then a cycling messenger in our Nation’s Capital, he found himself in the cellar at Erath Winery in Dundee for his first harvest.

During spells with Laurent Montalieu’s NW Wine Company (’06-’11), Evening Land Vineyards (’11 and ’12), and Ken Pahlow and Erica Landon’s Walter Scott Wines (’13-’17), Will had the opportunity to vinify fruit from more than 25 vineyards in the Eola-Amity Hills, and more than 100 total in the Willamette Valley, Umpqua Valley, Southern Oregon, and Eastern Washington. Between 2011 and 2018, Will served roles in the service side of the industry, offering expertise in a variety of technical sales for enological and winery purposes, while carving enough time out to personally produce the Violin range, which was begun in the 2013 vintage, working out of the Walter Scott Winery on the West side of Justice Vineyard in the Eola-Amity Hills.

More About Violin Wines

Established in 2013, Violin Wine produces Pinot noir and Chardonnay. Their fundamental goal is to produce wines of regional character, purity and poise. They and their vineyard partners are dedicated to sustainable wine-growing and exclusively dry farm our sites. The scale of their vineyards, delicacy of their varieties, and fickle nature of the climate necessitate the use of human labor for all pruning and most foliar management, and they practice mechanical techniques for in-row cultivation. Building a healthy farm is at the core of what their partnerships hope to achieve, as they believe it will produce the healthiest and most expressive grapes, fermentations and resulting wines.

The Menu & Pairings

Chef Jessica will walk through a demonstration cooking class featuring a four-course seasonal menu where we share the tips and tricks to creating a beautifully paired menu.

Jean, our Curator of Wine & Experiences, will educate you on the individual pairings with each course.
