Fossil & Fawn
Small production Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris and Chardonnay from grapes grown on a small vineyard in the Eola-Amity Hills, with winemaking based in urban Portland, OR.
In 1999, Jim Fischer, Jr., his father Jim Fischer, Sr., and an uncle collected cuttings from neighboring vineyards and started a nursery. The following year, they planted their first 5-acre block, a mix of Pinot Noir clones 114 and 115. Currently, there are 15 acres of which 14 acres are Pinot Noir (114, 115, 777 and Pommard) and 1 acre is Pinot Gris. There is an unintentional inter-planting of some Chardonnay as well.
The Crowley Station Vineyard is own-rooted and dry-farmed on a marine fossil bed. The site is south facing on Holmes Hill at the exit of Holmes Gap in the Van Duzer Corridor.
