Cowbell pays tribute to the cowboys who were some of the first settlers of the American west on sites that today are valued for the production of high quality varietal wines. Like many fine wine regions, Oregon’s Willamette Valley boasts a climate that ideally suited for both viticulture for growing grasses for cattle grazing. Cowbell Pinot Noir recognizes the intrinsic connection between livestock and viticulture that thrives in this agriculturally renowned region.
Together with skilled winemaker and distiller, Tad Seestedt, Cowbell Pinot Noir was developed to express the varietal purity and regional personality of Willamette Valley Pinot Noir and yields from old vine, high elevation sites. This pristine fruit couple with Tad’s delicate touch results in a wine that reflects both the innate nerve and balanced acidity that have made Willamette Valley such a compelling wine region.
