From Then To Now
For native Oregonian Michael Lundeen
...the journey to discover his calling to make fine wines was a journey of coming home. Returning to his family’s ancestral home at their Yamhill County farm he became the 3rd generation steward of that land and latest to tend the vineyards there. With that return as catalyst, Michael has been handcrafting expressive and elegant wines from Chardonnay and Pinot Noir in Oregon’s Willamette Valley since 2006.
His deep affinity for this valley has led him to both explore its varied terroirs, farming vineyards for himself and others, as well as endeavor to express its beauty and complexity through his wines. Lundeen’s single-vineyard bottlings of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, both still and sparkling, endeavor to reveal the distinctiveness and charm of the superb sites he able to work with.
