The People




Bill and Linda Hanson, with their daughter Lily, own and operate Libra Vineyard in the Yamhill-Carlton AVA. The property is farmed using L.I.V.E. (Low Input Viticulture and Enology) standards along with some biodynamic practices. Libra Vineyard is all about balance, which is an integral part of many things, including the process of transforming grapes into beautiful wine. Bill and the girls live by this notion; personally, with their own small production label, as well as in their vineyard management techniques.

Bill Hanson is also the winemaker behind the One Barrel Pinot Noir bottling.

The Dirt




JORY SERIES

Jory soils are named after Jory Hill, in Marion County which itself is named for the Jory family who settled in the area in 1852. In 2011, the Oregon Legislature named Jory the official state soil. Found above 300 feet elevation Jory is a rich, dark reddish-brown, deep silty clay loam. It is between four and six feet deep and provides excellent drainage for superior quality wine grapes.

WILLAKENZIE SERIES

Willakenzie soils are named after two of Oregon’s major rivers: the Willamette and the McKenzie. One of the oldest soil types in the Willamette Valley, Willakenzie is a marine sedimentary soil left by ancient, uplifted seabeds. It consists of moderately deep, well-drained silty clay loam over siltstone and sandstone.
