12th & Maple
Originally a processing facility for Oregon-grown hazelnuts, the 12th & Maple Winery, whose first crush was in 2005, is located in the heart of Willamette Valley wine country where Pinot Noir is king. Designed to be a “winery within a winery,” there are unique small-lot production capabilities specifically crafted for Pinot Noir. The 78,000-square-foot facility employs state-of-the-art equipment yet uses age-old winemaking techniques. All wines are made with individual care using a gentle French press, three-tiered sorting table and gravity flow wine movement.
