Created in the belief that the most significant thing the winery can do to enhance Chardonnay in the Willamette Valley is to increase the genetic diversity of clonal selections here. Every year Chad creates a Chardonnay from heirloom clones to help raise awareness of the lack of diversity in genetics across the valley. Each wine reflects vintage variation, of course, but also characteristics based on site differences and clonal selection from year to year. 2016 was an early year, but finished cool, so the acid level from our later sites strikes a great balance with this richly textured and aromatic wine. 225 cases produced from Musqu‚, Espiquette, Mendoza, Old Went‚, Mt. Eden Clones. Aged in 2nd and 3rd fill Chablis casks.

Minimus was started in 2011 in Oregon by Craft Wine Co winemaker, Chad Stock, as a series of one-off experiments, and continues to be home of innovation, experimentation and research. Minimus pushes the boundaries of winemaking and viticulture by continuously exploring the possibilities in this diverse region. We use a variety of fermentation vessels, and work with as many cultivars and clones as we can, often producing experiments that will never be repeated.
