Ron & Marianne Lachini began with a dream to start a small, family-owned estate vineyard focused entirely on producing uncompromising Pinot Noir. We were guided by our values, love of family, fine Burgundies and life! We believe that the vineyard is the wine. As such, our goal remains to nurture our 45-acre vineyard’s distinctive terroir and produce world class Pinot Noirs of prodigious quality for generations to come. Our emphasis is on the meticulous management of each vine through biodynamic farming, while combining state of the art winemaking and old world technique to handcraft wines of complexity, grace and profoundness - each one, we believe, a reflection of it's soul and unique place.

Lachini Vineyards began producing limited, ultra-premium, single vineyard Pinot Noirs with the 2001 vintage. A yearning for the old world and a passion for Pinot Noir led Ron and Marianne Lachini to Oregon in 1997 from Northern California; a patient pursuit to produce world-class Pinot Noir and establish a way of life for future generations. Lachini Vineyards embraces the time-honored principles of uncompromising desire for quality and long-term stewardship of the lands from which they harvest. Their commitment begins as growers of world-class grapes with a desire to have these turn into exquisite wines that bear measurement against the test of time and other leading wines of the world.

The team at Lachini Vineyards brings years of experience in both the vineyard and winemaking and is committed to retaining the essence of our specific vineyard terroir along with each vintage's character. More information on our winemaker(s) and vineyard management team follows below.

The LV Estate Vineyard is located on the backdrop of the Chehalem Mountain in the North Willamette Valley. The vineyard rises from 250-450 feet with south & southwest exposures. The Estate Vineyard is comprised of three distinct blocks identified by varying soil depths, type and clones – East (Pommard), Upper & Lower Middle (Dijon) and West (828, Wadenswil, 667). Future plantings are to include more Pinot Noir & Riesling. The intense purity of fruit, the unique microclimate(s) and geological formation over time that represents Oregon, was the driving factor for settling upon the North Willamette Valley.
