Unforgettable Wine Tasting in Carlton, OR
An adventure for your palate awaits as we introduce you to terroir-driven traditional varietals of Pinot noir and Chardonnay. We will soon be elevating a new generation of exciting varietals that have been planted on our estate such as Cabernet Franc, Syrah, Chenin Blanc and Albariño. Join us on our journey—stop by our tasting room in downtown Carlton or make a reservation!
The Very Best: Ultra Violet
At Violet Vines, our reserve wines are known as “Ultra Violets.” We don’t always produce an Ultra Violet during each vintage and for each varietal, but during our blending process when we identify a perfect combination of two or three exceptional barrels, that’s when we bottle these remarkable wines (currently available only to our Violet Vines Wine Club Members).
Unique & Invigorating Varietals
