After successful careers in the Oregon wine industry, in May of 2000, Laurent Montalieu and Danielle Andrus Montalieu purchased an 80-acre estate as their wedding gift to each other and registered with premium nurseries for six different clones of Pinot Noir vines as wedding gifts. They named the wedding vineyard, Domaine Danielle Laurent and they named their new label after their daughter, Soléna, which is the combination of the Spanish and French words Solana and Soleil, celebrating the sun and the moon.
Soléna Estate began as a way to explore winemaking with other varietals grown in neighboring appellations while the family's young Domaine Danielle Laurent vineyard in the Yamhill-Carlton AVA matured. In May of 2007, Danielle and Laurent added the spectacular 100-acre Hyland Vineyard in the McMinnville AVA to their estate vineyard holdings. Today, Laurent and Danielle are producing Pinot Noir and Chardonnay from their estate vineyards and over the years they have produced Pinot Gris, Merlot, Zinfandel, Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, and Late Harvest Riesling from select sites throughout Oregon and Washington.
Come spend an afternoon with the Soléna family at our tasting room located just outside of Yamhill, Oregon, where we'll raise a glass to celebrate friends, family, and life, and it won't be long until we end up considering you 'Nos Amis' or 'Our Friends'!
