Nicolette and Wayne took a great leap of faith in 2003 and moved to the Willamette Valley to grow grapes and make wine. Having found Youngberg Hill, they knew they had found their future forging a dream come true. As they continued to work towards building their business,Wayne focused on farming practices and winemaking while Nicolette concentrated on brand building and product expansion. With the continued development of new varietals, expansion,and improvement of the vineyard, it was the right time to create their new reserve brand,Bailey Family Wines, the crown jewel of the winery.

Bailey Family Wine Offerings
When deciding on which varietals to incorporate into the Bailey portfolio, we knew we wanted to create a sparkling wine that could be enjoyed on any occasion. The 2016 Bailey Sparkling Wine is crafted in the traditional Champagne method. Made of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, the grapes are fermented separately and blended to meet Nicolette’s ideal characteristics bottled with secondary yeast to ferment in the bottle for up to 3years, disgorged, dosaged, corked, and labeled.
Once this vital process takes place, the wine gives off aromas of cherry and pear framed with vanilla spice and shortbread. The first sip is crisp and cool as ripe raspberries, apple blossom, and peach fill the palate. Although it contains high acidity, the mid-palate enlivens your taste buds with lovely hints of strawberries and ripe apricot.
The Bailey Chardonnay is a representation of the finest chardonnay grapes grown on the Youngberg Hill Estate. Once fermented and aged, the barrels are tasted for quality and only the finest of the barrels are selected for the Bailey Family Wine label.
This chardonnay first reveals a rich golden hue, promising to light up your glass with color and your senses with flavor. Before the first sip envelops the mouth, the nose tantalizes with gentle touches of wet stone, citrus, and vanilla. Pear, meyer lemon, peach, and tangerine lead to flinty tones of wet stone which slide over the palette. The lingering finish balances creaminess with crispness, freshness with fullness, and length with layers.
The Bailey Family Wine Grenache is sourced from Swallow Hill which sits in the Rogue Valley just outside Ashland consisting of 4 acres of vines.
When first sipping the Bailey Grenache, this ruby-red beauty throws out aromas of strawberry and currant with black pepper and sage. Congruent with the nose, the flavors embrace raspberry and orange zest around dried herbs, butter crust, and caramel. The velvety mouthfeel with light tannins contributes to the symmetry of the overall pallet and a strong finish.
Bailey Pinot Noir is a representation of the best grapes grown at the Youngberg Hill Estate.
This hand selected wine is a deep garnet red and has a nose as alluring as it tastes with a blend of mushroom, dried leaves, and campfire ash. With notes of dark candied cherry, red plum, and blueberry complemented by supple tobacco and chalky tones all topped off with cocoa dust. These characteristics create a juicy yet elegant mouthfeel paired with refined, bright tannins, allowing the finish to unravel one layer at a time.
