Philanthropy – Empyrean Wines has supported several notable causes with wine donations. Please contact us if you wish us to consider your organization in our philanthropy program.
Empyrean Wines is the culmination of years of discovery. We have crossed the world learning about wine, viticulture and winemaking. Our long search for a home to the Bordeaux-style blends we dreamt of making lead us to Washington State. We believe Washington offers the climate, soil, and latitude that best meshes with our vision for a “wine of paradise” produced with Bordeaux and Rhone grapes.
Our estate is located in the Yamhill-Carlton AVA of Oregon. As we chose Washington for its Bordeaux varietals, we picked Oregon as home for our estate pinot noir vineyard. 2015 will see our first pinot noir produced - with the same devotion to quality and cellaring potential expressed in our Draco, Eridanus and Cygnus labels.
Empyrean Wines – The Story Behind The Name
Empyrean Wines takes its name from the “Paradiso” of Dante’s Divine Comedy. The Empyrean sphere is the 10th, and highest of all the spheres of heaven in that work. Our wines themselves draw their names from the constellations that comprise the other spheres of heaven. Like Dante’s depiction of paradise, ours is a very personal vision, and represents our aspiration to bring forth the finest wines from the regions we love best.
