A very small producer of fine Willamette Valley Pinot Noir that is not well-known or discovered except by Pinot cognoscenti despite making wine for quite a few years. Thomas Winery is owned by John Thomas who only makes Pinot Noir limited to about 375 cases a year from a 4-acre dry farmed vineyard first released in 1992. Essentially a one-man production. John is a founding member of Oregon's Deep Roots Coalition.

Thomas Winery is not open to the public, but you can write to him at P.O. Box 48, Carlton, OR 97111. The Pinot Noirs are quite elegant and age worthy and worth buying if you come across a bottle. Good luck
