Eola-Amity Hills is an AVA in the center of the Willamette Valley in Oregon, just north of Salem. This bank of hills lies west of the Willamette River and runs for roughly 15 miles north-south between the towns of Amity and Eola. All of the land within the AVA must lie at least 200ft (60m) above sea level, and vineyards sit on both the sheltered eastern slopes and the more exposed western slopes of the hills. The cool climate here is well suited to Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Riesling.
The Eola-Amity Hills AVA has a unique terroir that sets it apart from the surrounding Willamette Valley viticultural area. Ancient lava flows and tectonic shift created the hills and the weathered basalt soils here have proven perfect for premium winemaking. Free-draining and rich in iron, these soils serve to stress vines, lessening vigor and yield, which helps to concentrate flavors in the grapes.
