Amalie Robert Estate
Amalie Robert Estate was founded by Dena Drews and Ernie Pink in 1999. We left the corporate world behind and began a journey to grow Pinot Noir in the last best place on earth. We found a beautiful cherry orchard and the opportunity to follow our dreams.
Today, Amalie Robert Estate is a 60-acre property with 30 acres of sustainably farmed vines and a state-of-the-art gravity flow Pinot Noir winery. We are stitched into the sedimentary foothills outside of Dallas, Oregon.
In our second careers, the guiding principle is stewardship. We are the vineyard managers and winemakers. We are students of the vineyard, and class, it seems, is always in session. Our efforts in the field are rewarded with Pinot Noirs that are “true to the soil and true to the vintage."®
What’s the story behind the name? Amalie Robert is a combination of Dena’s middle name, “Amalie” (pronounced AIM-a-lee) and Ernie’s, “Robert”.
