Spirit Hill Vineyard

Eola-Amity Hills AVA | 180 Acres | Founded in 2008 | Red Jory Soil | 700′ – 800′ elevation

Purchased in 2008, this is now Argyle’s largest vineyard, with 130+ acres planted to Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Pinot Meunier. Spirit Hill sits on top of the Eola-Amity Hills and is shaped like an open bowl, with aspects in every direction. This elevation, in combination with Van Duzer Corridor’s gusty winds has made Spirit Hill Vineyard a very cool climate growing site.

Located south and up slope from Lone Star Vineyard, a great future of distinctive wines awaits Argyle from this impressive site. The Spirit Hill Vineyard will draw on Argyle’s experience in higher elevation fine wine grape growing. In the northwest corner of the vineyard, tucked away in the trees, is an old pioneer cemetery, which has inspired the vineyard’s ghostly name.
