About Belle Pente
Belle Pente, sits stunningly on a slope in the Willamette Valley’s Yamhill-Carlton district. Jill and Brian O’Donnell planted the first vineyard here in 1994, which now consists of 12 acres of Pinot Noir, two acres of both Pinot Gris and Chardonnay, and a few rows of Gamay Noir.

Bright ruby-red. Heady, exotically perfumed aromas of cherry-cola, raspberry liqueur, star anise and freshly turned earth, along with notes of incense and smoky herbs. Stains the palate with intense red fruit flavors that gain weight and sweetness with air. Manages to be powerful as well as energetic, finishing with outstanding focus and gently tannic persistence.
