Great Sparkling Wine made here in Oregon

About Lytle-Barnett

Every good bottle of wine comes from a fortuitous blend of natural forces and human intervention. But we’ve found that the very best of the best emerge in places where exceptional quality meets passion, experience and great timing.

For decades, we’ve watched Oregon’s Willamette Valley mature into a terroir capable of producing more than just world-class Pinot Noir. With new varietals emerging and coming into their own, we saw that the timing was perfect to create exceptionally high-quality local bubbles using the exact specifications of vintage French Champagne.

After convincing Oregon’s iconic maker of bubbles, Andrew Davis, to work exclusively with us, we invited our friend, South Africa’s sparkling wine legend Pieter Ferreira to help us apply the great tradition of méthode champenoise to the spirit of adventure and sense of place that we only find here in the Willamette Valley.

Lytle-Barnett’s first vintages achieve a level of joyful accomplishment that happens when two internationally acclaimed sparkling winemakers come together to work (and play) with the possibilities emerging in a region producing some of the world’s most exciting wines.

Every bottle of Lytle-Barnett is a confluence of our collective experience, our passion for Oregon’s unique winemaking culture, and our respect for centuries of French Champagne tradition. And now, after more than three years in the bottle, our bubbles are ready to celebrate with you.
