September Featured Winery of the Month is Amalie Robert!
Amalie Robert Estate was founded by Dena Drews and Ernie Pink in 1999, when they left the corporate world behind and began a journey to grow Pinot Noir in the last best place on earth. They found a beautiful cherry orchard and the opportunity to follow their dreams. Today, Amalie Robert Estate is a 60-acre property with 35.71 acres of sustainably farmed vines and a state of the art, gravity flow winery. The estate is stitched into the sedimentary foothills outside of Dallas, Oregon. In second careers, Dena and Ernie’s guiding principle is stewardship. They are the vineyard managers and winemakers; students of the vineyard, where class, it seems, is always in session. Their efforts in the field are rewarded with Pinot Noir wines that are “True to the soil and true to the vintage.” What’s the story behind the name? Amalie Robert is a combination of Dena’s middle name “Amalie” (pronounced AIM-a-lee) and Ernie’s, “Robert.”
