How Alexander describes Patricia Green Cellars:
“In loving memory of Patty Green, Patricia Green Cellars are the true essence of what winemaking is, that is letting the vineyards talk and not the winemaker. Patricia Green Cellars own and source some of the best fruit in Oregon. With their focus on clonal selection, both their Chardonnay and Pinot Noir are pushing new limits within the Oregon wine scene.”
Patricia Green Cellars started in 2000, when friends Patty Green and Jim Anderson purchased a 52-acre estate in Willamette Valley. Their philosophy of winemaking is as they state: ‘Do what needs to be done.’ When great fruit is produced from great terroir, very little needs to be done in the winery to make great wine. Patricia Green wines are produced by showcasing individual clones, sites, soils, and terroirs. In my eyes, this is what needs to be done along with careful oak ageing, which brings a true expression of any vineyard. Understanding the relationship between these different elements is critical, and their range of wines allows you to taste the many different faces of Oregon.
