Before You Travel


Audeant Wines

Audeant is a small boutique winery in Oregon’s Willamette Valley that produces truly handcrafted Pinot Noir, Rose of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. We are building slowly, and for legacy. Our goal is to be that producer that you refer to as producing decades of benchmark wines. 2016 was our inaugural vintage with just over 400 cases produced, consisting of two Pinot Noirs; Audeant and Nysa vineyard. 2017 we grew to 1100 cases, adding a small production Rose (79 cases) and a one more single site Pinot Noir (Luminous Hills vineyard). 2018 will see the release of roughly 100 cases of our first Chardonnay, from Seven Springs vineyard.
