St Innocent Winery | Salem, Oregon |

St. Innocent Winery was founded in 1988 by Mark Vlossak, our winemaker. We produce small lots of handmade, vineyard-designated wine from some of the best vineyards in the Willamette Valley, including Shea, Freedom Hill, Momtazi and our estate, Zenith Vineyard. Year after year, St. Innocent Winery has received the highest recognition from throughout the country and around the world for its outstanding Pinot noir, beautifully crafted white wines, and fair pricing. Mark was honored by the Wine Advocate in 2002 and 2004 as one of the "Wine Personalities of the Year." St. Innocent wines have been included in Burghound�s �Top Oregon Pinot Picks� for every vintage since 2006.

Mark works closely with each grower to fine tune the viticultural practices in St. Innocent's vineyard blocks. His goal is to reveal the distinctive terroir of each vineyard by defining the individual textures and flavors in the wine from each site. Mark chooses winemaking techniques to produce wines with balanced complexity, a backbone of acidity, and the ability to age. Together these qualities ensure St. Innocent's place at the dinner table.
