Nysa Vineyard is a small, family vineyard and winery founded in 1990. Owner and winemaker, Michael Mega purchased a parcel of orchards high in the Dundee Hills of Oregon in anticipation of growing world-class pinot. It was with passion, hard work and patience that Nysa Vineyard has become one of the most prestigious in the hills, providing Pinot noir to acclaimed producers throughout the Willamette Valley.

In 2004, Michael produced his first vintage of Nysa Vineyard Pinot Noir, with the intent of creating wines of complexity, concentration and balance. He believes winemaking begins in the vineyard using organic farming techniques with a nod to sustainability and Mother Nature. Upon harvest, a minimalistic approach is taken in the cellar with no fining or filtering at the time of bottling to preserve the subtle complexity of Pinot noir. “Gracefully aged” is a term not taken lightly as Nysa Vineyard wines are patiently cellared prior to release, allowing for a classic bloom of secondary flavors, balanced with delicate acidity, that only fine Pinot noir achieves.
