The crown-jewel of the Retour Portfolio of wines, The Holy Grail is a remarkable Pinot Noir that takes you on a magnificent journey showing how noble this varietal thrives in Oregon. Only one wine is produced each year and only the best barrels are orchestrated into the final blend. Signature to the Retour style, it exemplifies the pursuit of our quest to lift the wines to an even grander horizon creating the absolute quintessential Pinot Noir. This powerful and highly structured wine was crafted to age gracefully for up to forty years upon its release. It is a magnificent wine that is held to the highest realm of light in our cellar.
"I am anchored to the Willamette Valley because it is fundamental to who I am – abundance in the face of capricious summers and blustery winters, the sweet and exotic smells of sun-drenched blackberries, succulent peaches and crisp apples, the salty sting of cold Pacific Ocean winds and the strong work ethic and caring attitude of the people. The Willamette Valley hums with the harmony of this song and it is my quest to share it with others through The Holy Grail." - Lindsay Woodard
