Pinot Noir and Chardonnay crafted by The Eyrie Vineyards' Jason Lett, replacing for one year his own label, Black Cap. Eyrie's celarmaster, Julio Hernandez, is an important part of the Eyrie Vineyards family. His wife, Guadalupe, a mother of three, is suffering renal failure and badly needs a kidney transplant. Eyrie Vineyards is donating all proceeds from the sale of La Luz wines to Lupe's medical fund.
The La Luz Pinot Noir is a multi-vintage wine made from vineyards in the Yamhill-Carlton district planted in 1988.
