St. Innocent Winery was founded in 1988 by Mark Vlossak, who continues to be its winemaker and President. St. Innocent produces small lots of handmade, vineyard-designated wine from some of the best sites in the Willamette Valley. Since its founding, it has grown from 600 cases that first year to r current production of 8-10,000 cases, yet each wine is still handcrafted in the very same manner. Year after year, St. Innocent Winery has received recognition from throughout the country and around the world for its outstanding Pinot noir, beautifully crafted white wines, and fair pricing.
By marrying tradition with innovation, combining old world attention to detail with cutting edge inspiration, Mark creates wines that reflect their terroir, the specific qualities of the vintage, and his vision of wine's place in life: to complement and extend the pleasure of food. St. Innocent produces vineyard designated Pinot noir from six unique sites, as well as a blended Pinot called the “Villages Cuvée.” Its Pinot gris and Pinot blanc emulate the Alsatian style. They are produced from low cropped, ripe fruit, and are fermented dry to emphasize textural complexity. .
