Patricia Green Cellars
Patricia Green Cellars is located in Ribbon Ridge, a small viticultural area in Yamhill County. The 52 acre Estate property is at the heart of the winery that produces Pinot Noir, Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay from some of Oregon's finest vineyard sites. They use a combination of attention to detail in their vineyards, all of which are non-irrigated. Practical experience in winemaking and a passion for what they do create balanced, textured, beautiful, unique and critically acclaimed wines.
At the very least Patty Green is a study in climbing the winemaking ladder. She began by picking grapes at Hillcrest Vineyard outside of Roseburg and was eventually given the reins. By 1992 she was keeping a busy schedule of consultation work for various wineries.
All of this was the prelude to her developing her reputation as one of Oregon's top Pinot Noir winemakers. In 1993 she began as the winemaker and sole employee of Torii Mor Winery.
A slew of 90+ point scores on wines from the '93-'97 vintages, nods of acknowledgment from numerous national wine critics, widespread recognition within Oregon's wine community as a talent to watch and near cult-like status from Pinot drinkers.
