Oregon’s best kept secret…
Move over Pinot Noir, it turns out that Oregon Gamay Noir is actually really freaking good. So good, in fact, that the folks at Division Wine Company have decided to create their first all Wilamette Valley AVA blended cuvée of Gamay Noir, carbonically macerated and aged in a combination of neutral barrels, stainless steel and concrete for 8 months before bottling. The wine was named “Lutte” a French word which translates to “fight to overcome,” which is exactly what Division Wine Co is doing to champion Oregon Gamay Noir.
