ANTICA TERRA 2011 PINOT NOIR "ANTIKYTHERA" WILLAMETTE VALLEY 750mL

The Antikythera Mechanism is a geared, bronze-age device that was used to calculate astronomical positions with incredible precision. Sponge divers recovered it from the Antikythera wreck, in 1900, off the coast of Point Glyphadia. Itís significance for Antica Terra began as wordplay. While pronounced differently, Antikythera looks remarkably like Antica Terra. This similarity has become a way to understand the changing identity of their site. Since 2009, the site itself and the character of the wine it produces been dramatically transformed. There is an expression of place that winemaker Maggie Harrison could not imagine was possible before. Choosing the name Antikythera allowed her to link the wine to the history of the site while indicating that it was something completely different than what had come before.
