The "Vineyard Brain Trust" here at Stoller began with our partner, Harry Peterson-Nedry, with whom we co-own Chehalem, a well-known winery in Newberg, Oregon.
Chehalem traces its history back to vineyard operations started by Harry in 1980 at Ridgecrest Vineyards, the pioneering wine operation on Ribbon Ridge, northwest of Newberg, Oregon.
Harry met Bill Stoller while attending a wine tasting class in the early 80s. Bill and Cathy Stoller joined Harry in the winery in 1993, and subsequently began Stoller Family Estate.
Harry Peterson-Nedry is the founder and winemaker of Chehalem, our sister winery.
