I’m incredibly happy to share our wines with everyone as they are a little bit of us in a bottle. All our wines are grown, farmed, produced, bottled and sold at our Beacon Hill Vineyard property. From our home to yours, enjoy!”
– Carla Rodríguez, Proprietor
A blend of Pommard and Dijon 777 clones, our 2017 Beacon Hill Vineyard Pinot Noir is quintessential Yamhill-Carlton fruit.
15% Whole-Cluster small lots fermented in macro bins and aged 10 months in 25% new French oak barrels.
ABOUT BEACON HILL VINEYARD
Husband and wife, George Hillberry and Carla Rodríguez were spending a Sunday afternoon driving through wine country roads in November 2010 when they stopped by Beacon Hill. After a few friendly exchanges with the prior owners, George and Carla quickly realized there were many happy connections that lead them to the property (ask them about it next time you see them). Six months later, in April 2011 George and Carla were official owners of Beacon Hill Winery & Vineyard.
The property totals 44 acres with 22 under planting including Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Riesling and most recently, Albariño. Beacon Hill was first established in the late 1990s by renowned wine maker Tony Soter, of Soter Vineyards.
CELEBRATING HISPANIC ROOTS
A small group of Oregon winery owners and winemakers who share a Hispanic background and have come together to celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month from September 15th to October 15th, 2020 in order to share our stories, display the diversity of the Hispanic cultures which span most of Latin America and Spain, and as small business owners give back to the Spanish-speaking community in Oregon.
To commemorate the Celebrating Hispanic Roots initiative, Carla is offering a special trio of wines: 2019 Rosé of Pinot Noir, 2019 Albarino, and 2017 Beacon Hill Vineyard Pinot Noir. The wines were selected to emphasize a sense of place, a sense of her roots, and to share a bit of her heritage.
10% of sales will be donated to the Latino Partnership Program of the Oregon Community Foundation which funds efforts within education, leadership development and community bridge building that address social and economic issues within Oregon’s Latinx/o community. Click here to learn more.
