The Wine
Failla Wines began in 1998, born of the opportunity to make expressive wines from single vineyard locations across Californias western Sonoma Coast. Ehren, never one for slowing down, rapidly expanded the Failla stable from 2 wines in 1998 to over 30 wines two decades later. Our expansion into the Pacific Northwest is indicative of Ehrens forward-thinking nature, and desire to constantly challenge himself with excellent vineyards in different regions.

In 2001, we sourced fruit from the famous Goldschmidt Vineyard. Logistics proved a challenge and we only made that one vintage. Several years and a few plane trips later, we were offered Pinot from the legendary Seven Springs Vineyard and the Oregon bug officially bit us again. In 2016 we made 6 wines from all over the Willamette Valley, and in 2017 we are expanding the lineup to include Chardonnay, Riesling and Grner Veltliner. Long term, we have plans for developing an 80 acre vineyard site in Dallas, Oregon, located southwest of our new Tasting Room off Zena Road in Salem.

The Estate
After cutting his winemaking teeth assisting a consultant in Frances Rhone Valley during the difficult 1992 and 1993 vintages, Ehren Jordan went on to make powerful Petite Sirahs and Zinfandels for Turley Wine Cellars. The lessons he learned in France about maximizing ripeness in challenging conditions now serve Jordan at the 85-acre property on the Sonoma Coast, about 2.5 miles from the Pacific Ocean. In 1998 Ehren planted another parcel contiguous to their first, and in 2002 planted it with five acres of rootstock before grafting six selections of long-coveted Pinot Noir scion material the following year. Ehrens commitment to the highest standards of viticultural practice, coupled with his education in France and throughout California, is expressed every bottle of Failla Chardonnay and Pinot Noir.
