Description

Haakon Lenai Vineyard is a 35 acre property located in the Dundee Hills. This Southeast facing vineyard planted to Dijon (777, 115) and Pommard clones consists of Jory (Volcanic) soil at an elevation of 400-700 feet. It was originally planted in 1990 by Jon Jennison and was called Thistle Vineyard. Cody and Marque acquired the vineyard in 2019 and have since renamed the site after their children’s middle names: Haakon/Lenai.

Purple Hands is a low input, purity-driven winery. Ferments are a mixture of techniques: Pied de Cuve, native yeasts, and some commercial strains as needed. Whole cluster and skin macerations are vintage-dependent styles. Wines are bottled unfined and unfiltered to retain the honesty of the vineyard.
