Critic Scores, Reviews & Descriptions

Troon Vineyard is a Biodynamic® Certified regenerative organic farm in Oregon’s Applegate Valley. We naturally craft wines to bring pleasure to your life. All Troon wines are made from Biodynamic grapes spontaneously fermented with indigenous yeasts and no additives of any kind.

The first question we get about this wine is always, what is piquette? It is many things, but basically it is frugal farmer fizz, a type of natural wine that has been made for hundreds, if not thousands, of years. Those frugal farmers wasted nothing, and used the juice and skins left after pressing the wines they would sell to make wine for themselves and their workers. Today we have recaptured that spirit, which fits in so well with our biodynamic style of agriculture. After pressing our estate white and rosé wines, there is still substantial juice left in skins as we press very gently. To that we add a touch of water, then let it macerate overnight in the press. The next day, we press that juice into stainless steel tank, where begins a native yeast fermentation. Just before that fermentation is complete, we quickly bottle the new wine under crown cap to finish fermentation in the bottle. The resulting sparkling wine is a delight — fresh and fizzy with bright fruit flavors. Piquette may have bubbles like Champagne, but our Piquette! is more about picnics and summer sipping - or better yet, gulping!

Troon Vineyard is located on the Kubli Bench, high above the Applegate River in the Siskiyou Mountains of Southern Oregon. It is a biodiverse farm of almost100 acres. Life on our farm includes apples, a vegetable garden, re-wilded honeybees, sheep, chickens, wildlife, humans and, of course, grapevines.

“Aside from the excellent Applegate wines I’ve had from Willamette producers, the wines of one producer, Troon Vineyard, made such an impression on me over the last few years that I drove seven hours from the Mendocino Coast in July to pay a visit to Applegate Valley…While I admire the way Troon farms and its empirical attitude, the proof is in the wines, which are invariably fresh, lively and expressive.” - Eric Asimov
