While rosé production is not a “standard” for the Johan repertoire, 2020 presented the opportunity to make the Austrian-inspired rosé we have dreamt of since grafting the varieties into the vineyard. The 2020 Disco Chicken Rosé is a blend of Blaufränkisch, St. Laurent, Zweigelt and a touch of Pinot Noir. The fruit was harvested and direct pressed, yielding a bright and focused wine with beautiful acid and light red fruit. Our friend Lia designed the label to highlight our top 2020 music genre - DISCO - and our lovable and gregarious Johan hens.
Johan Vineyards resides on 85 acres of gently sloping estate vineyards in the heart of the Willamette Valley. Adjacent to the Van Duzer corridor, our vineyards are blessed with afternoon ocean breezes and cool evening temperatures that are ideal for ripening Burgundian varietals. Elevations range from approximately 180 to 380 feet. Soils are Helvetia, Steiwer, and Santiam silts which were formed primarily from ancient marine sedimentary rock.
Johan Vineyards is passionate about making premium wines that showcase the estate vineyards.If one starts with excellent grapes, handles the fruit carefully, and intervenes in the wine making process only when necessary, the wine should be great. These wines offer elegance, balance, complexity, and ageability. All wines are made in small, hand-crafted batches to insure quality and enjoyment. We produce Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Pinot Gris, and Vin Gris.
