Evening Land

Willamette Valley  //  Oregon  //  USA


“Evening Land produces some of the best Chardonnay in not only Oregon, but all of North America, and their whole lineup showcases the impressive winemaking talents of Rajat Parr and Sashi Moorman.”

Rajat Parr

“We are, first and foremost, faithful stewards of the historic Seven Springs vineyard, planted by Oregon wine pioneer Al MacDonald in 1984. On this dramatic east-facing slope, in the iron-rich and rocky, volcanic soils of the Eola-Amity Hills, Al MacDonald undertook what would become one of Oregon’s most recognised vineyards. Nestled against a forest of Douglas fir with views eastward to Mt. Hood and Mt. Jefferson, it is immediately evident to any visitor why Al chose this site.”


The Willamette Valley in Oregon is often compared to Burgundy, for the challenging growing conditions, varietals planted, and the quality-minded smaller scale producers that have chosen to work here.


It is therefore not surprising that ‘super sommelier’ Raj Parr and winemaker Sashi Moorman, who bonded over their love of Burgundy, decided to base their second joint venture here.  

The Evening Land estate, whose vineyard is known as ‘Seven Springs’ is planted overwhelmingly to Pinot Noir, followed by Chardonnay, and Gamay.


The oldest own-rooted blocks of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay are a testament to, and daily reminder of, Oregon’s incredible winemaking history.


Benchmark Oregon producers have long sourced fruit from Seven Springs and the wines from this vineyard are the most decorated and award-winning Oregon wines.

Summum Chardonnay


“An absolutely beautiful nose of peach blossom, tangerine, lemon and a brush of vanilla oak character. Balanced and fresh on the palate. The aromas are pristine and layered – I can't stop sticking my nose in this glass. Long finish.”

La Source Chardonnay


“This crisp Chardonnay has all the acidity and minerality one could hope for. Lemon basil, cashew and pear aromas float through the air, with a fresh scent reminiscent of sheets washed with French laundry powder hanging on a clothesline. Lime, baked apple and peach scone flavours are equally enticing.”

La Source Pinot Noir


“Resting seven months in barrel, with 50% being new French oak puncheons, the La Source Pinot Noir is another stunning example of an Oregon Pinot Noir from the team at Evening Land… Boasting aromas and flavours of crushed boysenberry, wild huckleberry, macerated strawberry, cedary herbs, tart lemon zest, crushed purple rose petals, brown mushroom powder, and potpourri - it’s a very complex and interesting wine that I adored. The palate is silky smooth with no rough edges to be found, giving ample acidity, rounded silky tannins, and a broad and medium body mouthfeel. One of the better 2021 Pinot Noirs that I have experienced so far. Highly recommended.”
