Evan and Sarah's Eola-Amity Hills Chard shows two kinds of fruit – citrus up front, orchard in the back, with a glowing brightness throughout. There are subtle hints of oak spice present, nicely balanced with the pure fruit and lingering mineral notes of this impressive new Chard.
We’re thrilled to introduce you to Martin Woods. You’ll recognize household Willamette Valley names on the resumes of the duo behind the upstart winery. We first met Evan Martin during his tenure as assistant winemaker for Belle Pente, a mainstay of our club offerings through the years. Evan’s winemaking prowess by the Biodynamic ninja mastery of Sarah Martin, viticulturalist for Bergstrom, which needs no introduction but just in case, is one of Oregon’s, if not the country's, best-known wineries.
Evan and Sarah launched Martin Woods with the 2015 vintage – we sold some of their first wines (Gamays) and have been excited ever since to feature more of their wines. You should expect to hear/see a lot more from Martin Woods in the coming months and years.
