Audeant is small winery located in Oregon’s Willamette Valley founded by Teal Walker and Winemaker Andrew Riechers. Andrew works with some of Oregon’s most beautiful and immaculately farmed vineyards producing small quantities of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. The winery began in 2016 producing just over 400 cases of Pinot Noir. In 2017, Audeant grew to 1100 cases producing three distinct Pinot Noirs, Rose, and in 2018 they added to their portfolio their first Chardonnay from Seven Springs vineyard producing only 4 barrels.
2018 Nysa Vineyard Pinot Noir continues our history with this legendary site, producing wines of mind bending complexity, depth and finesse. Always requiring the most patience, one is rewarded with a cornucopia of scents and flavors across a spectrum of red fruits, pine, pipe tobacco and the “su bois” of the surrounding forest. Our small plot of 30 plus year old vines have reached an ideal maturity, needing little but a few gentle passes throughout the growing season to transmit their message of sunlight via place into your glass.
