When we offered the first batch of 2021 Bethel Heights Pinot noirs earlier this year, we stated clearly: the wines have never been better. Considering Bethel Heights is one of the oldest, most respected Willamette Valley wineries, that's a big and bold statement.
After a recent trip to the winery to taste the next round of 2021s, we can and will be bolder: you may find a lineup of 2021 Willamette Valley Pinots that is as good as Bethel Heights but you will not find one better.
2021 for Bethel Heights was an ideal confluence of incredible estate vineyards expertly managed, masterful winemaking, and a little seasonal good fortune. This magical marriage yielded Pinot noirs soaring with elegance yet humming with depth and intensity. These wines are the essence of Willamette Valley Pinot noir, so don't miss out!
