The 27 acre Octave Vineyard planted in 2007, is a partnership of 6 leading Pacific Northwest wine producers: Norm McKibben, Jean-Francois Pellet, Justin Wylie, Greg Harrington, MS, Dennis Murphy, and Steve Thomson.
In the Sevein vineyard development on the Oregon side of the Walla Walla AVA, directly above the legendary ‘Seven Hills’ Vineyard at the 1250 to 1350 ft. elevation, Octave is a very innovative vineyard well above the killing freeze damage that plagues the area regularly, featuring many trials of vineyard row orientation, spacing, and clonal and rootstock diversity. The soil consists of a thin layer of wind-blown volcanic loess and glacial alluvial silt covering a deep bed of fractured basalt.
Directly adjacent to the Octave vineyard on one side is Drew Bledsoe’s highly regarded home vineyard for Doubleback; the other side is the Figgins family’s ‘Serra Pedace’ Vineyard.
