R. Stuart & Co.
Rob and Maria Stuart founded R. Stuart & Co. in 2002 in an old granary in downtown McMinnville in a neighborhood known as the "Pinot Quarter." Rob Stuart handles the winemaking and Maria manages public relations and collaborates with Trish Rogers on sales and marketing. Fruit is sourced form vineyards around the state including Ana, Melrose, Courting Hill, Temperance Hill, Weber, and Winderlea. The flagship varietals are a Pinot Noir, a Pinot Gris, and a sparkling wine, Rose d'Or. The everyday Pinot Noir wines are labeled Big Fire and the blended Pinot Noir is labeled Autograph as it is considered the quintessential Rob Stuart Pinot Noir. There are several vineyard-designated Pinot Noirs.
The winery's wine bar is located at 528 NE 3rd St. in McMinnville and is open daily except Monday. The wines are also available through the online store.
Articles About R. Stuart & Co.
2008 R. Stuart & Co. Temperance Hill Vineyard Eola Hills Pinot Noir
Like most Pinots from the 2008 vintage in Oregon, this wine is quite concentrated with a big-boned core of sweet plum fruit. A good cut of acidity and complimentary tannic backbone moderate the heft. Still needs more time in bottle. Very good. Reviewed August 23, 2012 ARTICLE »
