Willful Wine Co. is the passion and frustration of owner and winemaker Pam Walden. She makes Pinot Noir from seven acres of estate vines in the Dundee Hills, as well as limited amounts of other varietals. Production quantities are extremely limited. We encourage you to sign up to our wine club to ensure that you get some.
2012 Willful Estate Pinot Noir (411 cases) and 2012 Northridge Vineyard Pinot Noir (just 49 cases). Ready to ship the week of December 8th. Try them at Portland Wine Storage on December 15th from 3-6pm. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for more details of the tasting or go to our BUY page to order.

2011 Jezebel Pinot Noir, 88+pts "excellent value"
2011 Jezebel Blanc, 89 points "outstanding value"
