QUICK FACTS

Crawford Beck Vineyard (CBV) is distinct in its own micro-terroir.

Its soils are of volcanic origin, having been laid down by lava flows that occurred some 15 million years ago.

These clay-loam soils overlay some ancient marine sediments that in many places are not far below the volcanic soils.

THIS WINE’S STORY

CBV lies on the gentle slopes of a swale that faces south-southwest, looking across the Willamette Valley toward the gap in the Coast Range (Van Duzer Corridor) through which cooling breezes flow into the Valley.
