The Evening Land is a mythical Greek garden where the fruits of immortality grew, tethered to the setting sun on the western rim of the world, just beyond the reach of mortals. Founded in 2005, Evening Land produces benchmark Oregon wine from the Seven Springs Estate vineyard.
Seven Springs Vineyard is situated in the southeastern Eola-Amity Hills. Initially planted to 65 acres in the early 1980s, today the vineyard is home to 90 acres of Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and – to a smaller scale – Gamay Noir. A majority of the vineyard is planted to Pinot Noir and consists of several different grape clones well-suited to the climate, including Calera, Pommard, Swan and Mt. Eden. Having historically produced some of the finest grapes in America, Seven Springs was selected as one of the top 10 vineyards in America by Food and Wine Magazine. The Pacific Ocean breeze, volcanic soil, eastern exposure, and high elevation contribute to the natural preservation of the grapes’ acidity and enrich eat wines with elegant flavors and minerality. The most prevalent soil type at Seven Springs is the iron-rich volcanic soil known as Jory – it is well-drained, having formed from deposits of igneous rock – with just a thin layer of top soil right along the volcanic flow line.
