The Quintet crest represents the pursuit of balance and a shared experience. Our mantra is that “Great Pinot is made in the vineyard.” Quintet’s goal is to produce and inspire exceptional wine. We believe the most crucial step in obtaining our goals is ensuring that vineyard management understands we are farming for fine wine.
By the time the grapes are fermenting, we typically use one-third whole clusters to provide a nuanced complexity that defines Quintet’s Pinot Noir. By the time the wine is finished, we have produced an honest and naturally elegant Pinot noir that reflects the vineyard’s unique sense of place and exemplifies its qualities.
For Chardonnay, our discipline is the same. Our aim is to produce an Oregon Chardonnay in the Chablis style. We use only Dijon clones 76 and 95; fermentation is sur lie; elevage is typically nine to eleven months. Our Chardonnays are flavorful and crisp and a delight to the senses.
