About Clos Griotte
Thibaud Mandet - Owner & Winemaker
Among my life’s ambitions has always been to develop my own vineyard and create my own wines. In 2017, Clos Griotte vineyard was born with 7 acres of Pinot Noir grapes planted in Eola-Amity Hills AVA. Meanwhile, I decided to source Pinot Noir grapes from high quality and distinctive vineyards, Momtazi and Hyland, to produce white, rosé and red wines. My goal was to work with high elevation vineyards, both around 800 feet, and older vines, 20 to 30 years old.
The opportunity to make my wines with such exceptional vineyards, vines and grapes has been such a gift. I hope they will reflect well my love for Oregon Pinot Noir and show tribute to the hard work and care of the people working in the vineyard.
In case some of you wonder about the name Clos Griotte, "Clos" refers to a walled or closed vineyard often found in Burgundy. Clos is now used in the name of vineyards even when the wall no longer exists. "Griotte" comes from the French word meaning sour cherry or pie cherry.
The Clos Griotte vineyard was a cherry tree farm before it become a grape vineyard. By giving its name, I wanted to acknowledge and celebrate its past legacy and promising future.
The beautiful and picturesque setting creates an ideal experience for a private tasting.
My wines are now crafted at the Dundee Wine Library winery in Newberg, a lovely location with tasting room and B&B.
Hope to get the chance to meet you at either locations.
Cheers to health, happiness and good wines!
