About Anne Amie Vineyards
Anne Amie Vineyards are located in the rolling hills of the Yamhill-Carlton District and on the steep hillsides of the Chehalem Mountains, both nestled in Oregon’s verdant Willamette Valley. Focused almost exclusively on Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris, and Pinot Blanc, Anne Amie Vineyards also produces a small amount of Estate Müller-Thurgau. The label was established in 1999 by Dr. Robert B. Pamplin, Jr., who purchased and transformed the historic Chateau Benoit Winery; in the process, he renamed it Anne Amie after his two daughters, Anne and Amy. As in 1999, today Dr. Pamplin continues to follow a vision of creating wines of the highest quality that reflect his passion for excellence. Anne Amie Vineyards is proud to be part of the Yamhill-Carlton AVA, and the Chehalem Mountains Winegrowers. To learn more about Anne Amie or Dr. Pamplin, visit www.anneamie.com or www.pamplin.org
