Founded in 1988 by former Panther Creek vintner, Mark Vlossak, St Innocent Winery has long been regarded as one of Oregon's top producers. Today he works with five of Willamette Valley's most acclaimed vineyards: Zenith Temperance Hill, Momtazi, Freedom and Shea. Early last year, Mark sold his property adjacent to Zenith Vineyard and purchased a 47.5 acre property in the South Salem hills, he is planting a mix of Dijon clone chardonnay and Pinot Noir. Over the years, the winery grown from the 600 cases released in the inaugural vintage to their current production of 10,000 cases, though it is important to note that each wine is still hand-craft, organic and biodynamic. St Innocent wines have received consistent critical acclaim over the past 30 years. Their 2015 Shea Vineyard Pinot Noir received a commendable 93 points from Wine & Spirits, also of note, their 2015 Zenith Vineyard Pinot Noir, rated 92 points by Wine Enthusiast.
