Arterberry Maresh Pinot Noir 2019 

Dundee Hills
Sometimes we are graced with the opportunity to taste the work of a legend.   At Murphy's, we wonder at the opportunity to go direct to the source of a region or varietal.  However, this search is often a lifetime pursuit with fewer & fewer chances to pour a bit of legacy into our glass.  It's why this offer and this bottle are so special! 

We had this wine at last week's Tasting.  It took top spot among everyone and blew the other offerings away.

Arterberry Maresh has its history rooted deep in Oregon wine country.  What's in the bottle speaks to a poetic pursuit of Pinot Noir in the Willamette Valley!  A roll of the dice on a farmstead in the Red Hills of Dundee that evolved into the pinnacle of vineyard site and viticulture standards for all of Willamette Valley.  

A Legacy of Farming & Winemaking “A view lot in the country” is what Loie and Jim Maresh Sr. were seeking in 1959 when they found a 27-acre hilltop farm for sale in the Red Hills of Dundee.  Jim Sr. and Loie planted Pinot Noir in 1970 in what would become the fifth oldest vineyard in Oregon and the first vineyard on Worden Hill Road.
the grower:
The Maresh family has had a long and memorable presence in the Dundee Hills. In 1980 Jim and Loie’s daughter, Martha, married Fred Arterberry, Jr. who was one of the first winemakers in Oregon to have a degree in fermentation science from the University of California at Davis.

Fred Arterberry was one of the early pioneer winemakers the 1970’s and produced many highly acclaimed wines from the Maresh Vineyard. In 1983 Martha and Fred had a son, Jim Arterberry Maresh. His father’s winery label — Arterberry — closed upon Fred’s death in 1990. Beginning in 2005 Jim founded his own winery, Arterberry Maresh, and is the first in Oregon to represent a third generation in Oregon’s wine industry.

Raised on his family’s farm since he was born has given Jim a strong connection to and appreciation of the Red Hills of Dundee. He knows the vineyards, the neighbors and the various seasons and vintages that challenge and reward each grape grower and winemaker. His is a deep history of family, farming and winemaking. His wines reflect that heritage and the experience of three generations farming since 1959.
