Deepak and Sinclair Sawhney discovered the Willamette Valley on a scouting trip to find wines for their upcoming wedding more than twenty years ago. Seattlites, they fell in love with wine and the topography and life style of the Willamette Valley. They returned annually visiting a couple of tasting rooms on the way to Cannon Beach and hitting up a couple more on the way back. And each visit they would stop on a gravel road, look around and ask: “When are we moving?”
Ten years ago we packed up and never looked back. While Roshni sells the bulk of our grapes to a variety of local vineyards, we hold back about three tons of our old growth vines to make a Pinot Noir Rose, an estate Pinot Noir and a Pinot Noir Reserve. Chardonnay and Sparkling are in the mix. And two fallow acres are teasing us, daring us to plant a few more vines of our dream favorites.
