Rallison Cellars is fortunate to source grapes for Barron-Wahl. This is truly a unique site and an example of the excellent wine grown on Parrett Mountain.
Pearl Family Vineyard
The Pearl FamilyVineyard consists of 18 acres, four of which have Viognier on 101-14 rootstock. The vineyard is on the banks of the beautiful Applegate River with abundant sunlight and soils that provide optimal drainage.
The growing season in Southern Oregon provides reliable ripening while allowing the sufficient hang time sufficient for the Viognier flavors to fully develop. Vineyard practices consist of annual cover crop in alternating rows to naturally replenish the nutrients in the soil. Plants are spur pruned and shoot thinned to avoid over cropping. Clusters are color thinned post veraision to assure uniformity. The Pearl approach is to let the plants do the work–help them, but stay out of the way.
