Torii Mor Winery was founded in 1993 by Donald Olson, MD who remains the owner to this day with his wife, Margie. The winery was initially a small project that was intended to showcase the fruit from the vineyard. Olson Estate Vineyard was planted in 1972 and is one of the oldest vineyards in the Dundee Hills AVA.

With the commitment to preserving the environment and Earth, Torii Mor is making ecologically smart choices and farming sustainably, while continuing to craft high quality, complex wines that possess a quiet elegance. Torii Mor is cultivating a sustainable business that respects the environment by assessing the overall carbon and energy usage. The solar array, gravity flow winery in the Dundee Hills, erected in 2007, LEED Gold status and LIVE vineyard and winery certifications are a testimonial to this commitment.

The name TORII MOR was chosen by Dr. Olson as he felt it conjured a feeling of unique elegance. Borrowing from the Japanese, the “Torii” refers to the ornate gates most often seen at the entrances to Japanese gardens. “Mor” is a word in ancient Scandinavian that means “earth”. By integrating these two distinct languages, the romantic image of a gate to an earth space, or passageway to beautiful things, is formed. We believe that Pinot noir, more than any other varietal, is that beautiful gateway to the earth.

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.

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.
