Since 2002, Dusky Goose has called the Dundee Hills home. Nestled between the protective rain shadow of Oregon’s Coast Range to the West and the majestic Cascade Range to the East, our Rambouillet Estate Vineyard lies in the cool climate heart of the Willamette Valley, perfectly suited for growing World Class Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.
2016 Dundee Hills Pinot Noir
It is no longer a best-kept secret that Dundee is the place for Pinot Noir. For nearly 20 years we’ve thrived amidst the narrowest parameters for success. Limitations on ripening grapes in such a cool climate have given us a singular focus - growing World Class Pinot Noir. Cultivating Old World clones of Pinot Noir planted in high-density, high-elevation vineyard blocks in rich, volcanic soils has been the hallmark for success for our Dundee Hills Pinot Noir.
Dusky Goose Dundee Hills Pinot Noir is a triumph of precision and place is made to endure. Gently aged in French oak for 12 months and reserved for additional bottle aging before release, our Dundee Hills Pinot Noir builds power with age.Shop Dundee Hills Pinot

Improving With Age
Rambouillet Estate Pinot Noir
Time is the ultimate luxury and the best wines in the world self-identify by their improvement with age. Dusky Goose wines are no exception. Each vintage, we earmark a selection of cases to be sold after extended cellaring. This is your opportunity to get a last look at bygone exceptional vintages in limited release offerings.
Our Dundee Origins
Dusky Goose was Founded in 2002 in Dundee – Oregon’s premier winegrowing region, by John and Linda Carter.
The object from the beginning was to make memorable, age-worthy wines that rival the best examples of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay from the Old World.
"Great venue and wonderful wines. A must-see on every wine enthusiast's list of wineries."
