Jory | A soil type described by Tom Stevenson (2011) as ‘a volcanic soil, primarily basalt, which is in turn a hard and dense soil that often has a glassy appearance. One of the two primary soil types found in Oregon’s Willamette Valley, particularly on the lower foothills, such as the Dundee Hills, where Pinot Noir excels.’
