Upstairs at Touché and The Parisian Room

An Oregon Wine Dinner

With Winemaker Nathan Litke of Illahe Vineyards & Winery Friday, May 8, 2020 • 6:30 pm

ILLAHE, pronounced Ill-Uh-Hee, is a local Chinook word meaning “earth” or “place” or “soil”. Illahe’s goal is to make wine as naturally as possible from soil to bottle. They work by hand on small lots with age-old techniques and materials. Their focus is to grow and make quality Pinot Noir and white wines that express the vintage and their varietal characteristics..

Illahe’s vineyard is on an 80-acre, south-facing slope that was planted in 2001 with 22 acres of Pinot Noir. The vineyard now has a total of almost 60 acres, planted with seven varieties; Pinot Noir dominates, accounting for 50 of those acres. We also use estate fruit from our family vineyard Glenn Creek, located near West Salem.

Illahe Vineyards is one of nine vineyards situated in the Mount Pisgah area. In this prime grape-growing region, the majority of their vineyard lies on marine sediments atop ancient siletz rock.
