The Flood Line Pinot Noir hails from two distinct sites in the Eola-Amity Hills - Valin-Morrissey (2016 was 100% from here) and Bois Joli. Valin-Morrissey was initially a land lease; Rex Hill Vineyards paid to develop this land. Years later, when they started cutting away properties, Valin-Morrissey was the last on the chopping block. We thought it was crazy to let such an incredible site go and pounced on it, farming it collaboratively and sustainably. Perched up high on the west (Amity) side of the hills, Bois Joli is also farmed sustainably, using uncertified biodynamic and organic preparations by the owners and growers - the Bond family
