Violet Hill’s Rogue AVA bargain is currently the most popular Pinot Noir we sell.
Violet Hill delivers a delicious pinot noir that sings of Oregon at an affordable price. Look for flavors of dark cherry and flowers with an accent of black tea, unencumbered by oak. Drink this now for its youthful energy while its pricier competitors mature in the cellar. This would also be a great addition to your Thanksgiving table.

With so much highly-rated, bargain-priced wine on the market at the moment, we’ve witnessed more and more of our consumers turn to our local staff members for suggestions outside the mainstream. Of all the under-the-radar bargains we’re obsessed with at the moment, no red wine has been more popular than the incredibly-priced Violet Hill Oregon Pinot Noir—a value that must be tasted to be believed.
It used to be almost a rule that Pinot Noir under $20 wasn’t necessarily worth fussing around with, but Violet Hill has completely changed that notion at Mission. Farmed in an expansive and well-sheltered valley along the Rogue River in Oregon, its vineyards are bordered by the Cascade Mountains to the east, the Siskiyou Mountains to the north, and the Southern Oregon Coast Range to the West. With mostly high-elevation sites, the warm days and cool nights allow for fruit with both ripeness and acidity.
Using all native yeasts for fermentation, the wine is fresh and vibrant on the palate with plenty of dark fruit, bolstered by lifted aromatics and crunchy berries on the finish. It’s so juicy and alive you might find yourself plowing through an entire bottle faster than expected. That’s OK, however, because at just $16.99 you can afford to buy more than one.
Get in on the secret.
