Z’IVO is named in honor of the Zelko family Czech heritage. In Czech, the word means “alive” so Z’IVO can be interpreted as wines that are vibrant. Led by slightly crazed winemaker John Zelko, Z'IVO has been quietly producing world class Pinot Noir in Oregon's famed Willamette Valley for over a decade. Our densely planted vineyard is on a rocky hillside in the north Eola Hills. Small lot fermentation with native yeasts allows the full expression of Pinot noir to emerge.
