JULON VINEYARD IS A REMARKABLE OPPORTUNITY to participate in the everrewarding winemaking industry. Eola-Amity Hills AVA is known for its well-suited soils and climate, creating the perfect storm for balanced acidity, growing delicate wines you cannot find anywhere else. Rich, diverse soils and coastal winds soothing the Willamette Valley make it ideal for grapes to be developed with complex, yet harmonious taste. Sitting on 48.79 acres, the property ranges from 225 to 410 feet in elevation, with southern and southwestern slopes facing the Oregon Coast Range. Planted in 2007, the vineyard is divided into seven blocks along the upper half of the property and covers 16.35 acres. Throughout these blocks are four different Pinot Noir clones – Pommard, Wadenswil, Dijon 115 and Dijon 777, and a small area of Chardonnay clones (76 and 648) which were grafted in 2016. The vines are grafted onto phylloxera-resistant rootstocks 3309 and 101-14. This dry-farmed vineyard was planted and has been managed by Results Partners, a well-known and respected wine management company, and has been producing beautiful fruit making it very marketable and successful for retention of grape contracts. Surrounded by neighboring vineyards producing critically acclaimed fine wines such as Eola Springs, Sojourner and Schindler — this area is prime vineyard land. The manufactured home is the perfect placeholder to build an estate home granting you peace and privacy while taking in the spectacular views of the vineyard, valley and coastal range beyond. With over 21 additional acres suitable for planting, imagine the opportunity you can build upon this already successful vineyard. Enjoy the wine country lifestyle by taking advantage of nearby winetasting spots such as Björnson Vineyard and Bethel Heights Vineyard. There's something new to be discovered at every corner you turn in Oregon Wine Country.

GROSS PLANTABLE ACRES: Approximately 38 TOTAL ACRES: 48.79 AVA (AMERICAN VITICULTURAL AREA): Eola-Amity Hills SOIL REPORT AVAILABLE UPON REQUEST *The following sections are excerpts taken from a memo written by Matt Novak of Results Partners LLC. to previous owners. VINEYARD SOILS: "In September of 2006 I dug a series of twelve backhoe pits to a depth of 5+ feet in order to accurately classify soil types and to expose any standing water tables and/or drainage issues. We employed Andy Gallagher of Red Hills Soils to examine and report on these soils. For reference please see Andy’s full report, dated 10/12/06. In brief summary, Andy’s report agrees in principal with USDA Soil Survey data (see USDA Soil Survey accompanying this memo). I believe that all of the soils contained within the property boundaries, including those depicted as 30C on the USDA survey and depicted as Area E on Andy’s map, are suitable to high quality vineyard production. All soils contained within Andy’s areas A, B, C, and D are exceptionally well suited to vineyard production with limited to perhaps no


need for subsurface drainage. The soils depicted in Andy’s area E will likely require some subsurface drainage to avoid persistent soil saturation in the late winter and early spring months (Feb. – April). Irrigation will not be a requirement for successful vineyard production on this property, both in qualitative and quantitative terms. In fact, for reasons to lengthy to elaborate on here, I recommend against installing permanent supplemental irrigation on the property. Areas of shallow soils, most notably those areas surrounding pits #7 and #10 on Andy’s map, should be deep ripped to 30+ inches and amended to aid in vine establishment. Soil variability on the property can and should be addressed with proper rootstock selection to devigorate areas of deeper, wetter soils and to invigorate areas of shallower, drier soils." SLOPE AND ELEVATION: "Property elevations range from a high of approx. 395’ in the NE corner to a low of approx. 230’ in the SW corner. This elevation range places the property within and in the lower end of the commonly accepted local optimal vineyard elevation range of approx. 200’ – 800’. Being at the lower end of this elevation range might in fact be considered advantageous as it suggests greater heat unit accumulation and related enhanced grape ripening. Property slopes range from a high of approximately 25% in portions of Areas A, B, and C to a low of approximately 2% in portions of Area E. The only slope concern is along the south and south western property boundaries in Area E where cold air drainage and related spring and perhaps fall frost damage might be an issue. A useful strategy to minimize this frost risk will be to refrain from planting within approximately 150’ of the south property boundary (see attached image map)." GENERAL OBSERVATIONS AND OPINIONS: "Based on the aforementioned soil, slope, and elevation analysis and taking into account property setbacks for frost risk mitigation, I estimate there are approximately 38 acres on the 48.79 property that are ideally suited to vineyard production. The potential of the property to produce excellent quality wine grapes is demonstrated in large part by the adjacent Schindler Vineyard. Peter Rosback of Sineann purchases all of the Schindler Vineyard fruit and makes vineyard designate wines that place amongst the best wines in Peter’s portfolio. As further testament to this observation the attached soils map depicts the property as sharing the same soil types as those of the Schindler Vineyard."
