ABOUT CHAPTER 24 VINEYARDS
Established in 2012, Chapter 24 Vineyards is a collaborative project from Willamette Valley veteran Mark Tarlov and Louis Michel Liger-Belair of Domaine du Comte Liger-Belair in Vosne-Romaneé, Burgundy. In 2014, Winemaker Max Marriott joined the Chapter 24 Vineyards team to head production. Named for the final chapter of Homer’s Odyssey, Chapter 24 Vineyards crafts wine using the unique infusion method, a focus on infusing flavors without imparting weight and tannin. The winery produces 3500 cases annually, carefully sourcing grapes from 70 small parcels spanning across 6 sub-AVAs of the Willamette Valley. With their highly-acclaimed trio of Pinot Noir wines, The Fire, The Flood, and The Last Chapter, Chapter 24 Vineyards brings together the best of Oregon Pinot Noir, exploring an expression of the land and a sense of place. Wine Spectator recently called Chapter 24 Vineyards “a new name to know.” Wine & Spirits magazine spotlighted Chapter 24 among the 2014 Wineries of the Year and named the 2012 Last Chapter Pinot Noir one of the 100 Best Wines of the Year, and highest rated on their list of the Year’s Best Pinot Noir from Oregon. The winery recently opened a modern tasting room in Dundee on the Highway 99 wine route in late 2014. Visit chapter24vineyards.com and follow Chapter 24 on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
