Our story involves the commitments we have made along the way in pursuit of a dream to grow premium quality grapes and make world class pinot noir. We followed, with great interest, the stories of many Oregon pioneers in the wine industry. Although far from the first to have this dream, we are certainly not the last to pursue it. To us, Oregon is a place still welcoming newcomers. Wine industry players are very willing to share experiences and expertise. We wanted not only a welcoming environment, but a place to call home. Our land is at the center of the dream. We started with the land, added the grapes, and now the wine. We are growing the business from the ground up. It is all about hands on experience and doing things that feel right to the four of us.

Our dream of making wine all started as a simple conversation. To date we have planted over 11 acres of "premium" pinot noir vines, made wine on a non-commercial basis for four years, two of those from our estate vineyard, and sold grapes to prestigious local winemakers. After setting up a separate winery entity in 2006, we are about to realize the dream of sharing our wine commercially. This dream became reality with the inaugural release of Iota 2006 Pinot Noir-Pelos Sandberg Vineyard in April 2008.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
