Raise a Glass

Mindy and Jason Gautreau consider their family-owned boutique winery, based out of the Willamette Valley in Oregon, a fortunate stroke of serendipity. We focus on single vineyard, limited production wines. Our goal is to create a true expression of the AVA, vineyard, varietal, and vintage.

2016 Yamhill Carlton Pinot Noir

2016

This was our first vintage. A warm spring led to a more moderate summer. Due to the unusually warm spring, berry size was smaller resulting in a complex and concentrated grape.

2017 Yamhill Carlton Pinot Noir

2017

Compared to the previous vintage, in 2017 the spring was much wetter. A spike in heat occurred in May followed by a cool snap. The remainder of summer was warm which allowed for good fruit set. The vintage turned out to be well balanced resulting in a typical Willamette Valley Pinot Noir.

2018 Yamhill Carlton Pinot Noir/Rose of Pinot Noir

2018

2018 was full of sunshine in the Willamette Valley! Despite it being a dry vintage the sugar, acid, and PH were typical of the area. Warm days and cool nights resulted in ideal conditions for producing some outstanding Pinot Noir.

2019 Yamhill Carlton Pinot Noir/Rose of Pinot Noir

2019

The growing season was on the mild side this vintage. Rain even fell during the summer. Fall was on the cooler side. Rain fell mid-September causing some uncertainty. The vintage turned out beautifully with complexity and lower alcohol levels which is typical of Oregon Pinot Noir.

2020 Yamhill Carlton Pinot Noir/Eola-Amity Chardonnay

2020

Fruit set was challenging due to wet conditions in the Spring. Summer temperatures were moderate leading up to September. The high winds around Labor Day were followed by unprecedented wild fires. The quality of fruit set was still good. This vintage produced wines with concentrated flavor and good acid.

Our Wine Family

The Goat

The goat is an endearing old soul who reminds us to always be curious about the world around us including our connection to nature. The goat will travel to impossibly high altitudes to live which should encourage us to be diligent and persist in order to reach our highest potential. The goat being an independent creature is a symbolic expression of inner reflection and to always honor ourselves and our individual ideals.

Gautreau Family Estate loves Animals

Jason's friends used to call him "Gaut" growing up in Massachusetts. Mindy & Bostynn are both Capricorns (the horned goat) born in December. It seemed fitting to use the goat to represent our winery. We love animals, especially goats! We support several animal sanctuaries around the country. A percentage of each purchase goes towards supporting our sanctuary "gauts".
