Martin Woods may be the most authentic small Oregon winery of our times
The Oregon wine scene was once only a scattering of mom & pop winemakers making small lots of exceptional wines out of nondescript countryside garages. Those days feel long gone now, but every once in a while you stumble across a winery that harkens to the good old Oregon winemaking days. Martin Woods is just that.
Martin Woods winery is secluded in the wooded foothills of Oregon's coast range mountains, within the McMinnville AVA. Spearheaded by winemaker/vigneron Evan Martin, Martin Woods is driven by ideals of searching out and partnering with cool-climate vineyard sites in the Willamette Valley to produce truly-exceptional, artisan, terroir-driven Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Gamay, Riesling, Gruner Veltliner and Rosé. They also source Cabernet Franc and Syrah from the absolutely unique terroirs of northeastern Oregon: The Rocks District of Milton-Freewater and the Walla Walla Valley. These are wines with theclassic qualities of elegance, lifted aromas, textural complexity, weight and tension...Highly pleasurable wines that complement cuisine and offer long-cellaring potential.
