Yamhill-Carlton AVA Wine for A Cause

Members of the Yamhill-Carlton winegrowing region have banded together in collaborative effort to raise funds for Yamhill Carlton Together Cares (YCTC), a non-profit serving children and families in the Yamhill and Carlton communities. More than thirty wineries contributed their top Pinot Noir bottlings to create mixed 6-packs of wine showcasing the best of the region.

Participating wineries include Belle Pente, Big Table Farm, Elk Cove, and Lemelson Vineyards, among many others. 6-packs sold as part of this fundraising initiative feature 6 wines from 6 different producers, all around $50 a bottle. These special collections, which will be randomly selected upon purchase, are offered until they sell out and are available for $250 each.

Yamhill-Carlton Pinot noir is redolent of blackberries, raspberries, cloves, tobacco, and coffee – all incredibly food friendly flavors.

Yamhill-Carlton wines first captivate you with aroma. Their texture is like no other wine – silky, generous, and a persistence that lasts.
