Winery Overview

Stoller Family Estate is one of Oregon’s most highly-regarded vineyards and wineries. Pioneering Oregonian and founder Bill Stoller purchased his family’s second-generation farm in 1993, guided by the vision of cultivating an enduring legacy for his family’s land. Over the last 20+ years, he has transformed the 373-acre property into the largest contiguous vineyard in the Dundee Hills, and established his vineyard as a premier source of high-quality fruit.

Winemaker, Melissa Burr, works in concert with vineyard manager Robert Schultz to oversee the site’s continued refinement. Together, they steward Bill Stoller’s legacy by growing exceptional Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Stoller Family Estate is the first LEED® Gold certified winery in the world. It features three guest houses, as well as a state-of-the-art tasting room with panoramic views of the vineyard.

Estate Vineyard

Stoller Family Estate is the largest contiguous vineyard in Oregon’s Dundee Hills, spanning 373 acres, with approximately 190 under vine. The vineyard is divided into 101 meticulously-farmed sections at elevations ranging from 220 to 640 feet. The property features seven planted varieties: Pinot Noir (63%), Chardonnay (28%), as well as Pinot Gris, Riesling, Tempranillo, Syrah, and Pinot Blanc. Clonal selection includes Pinot Noir clones Pommard, 777, 667, 114, Wädenswil, while Chardonnay features Dijon clones 96, 95, and 76. Our site features a warmer microclimate, due to the surrounding mountains, that allows for a more consistent ripening. To continue to elevate the quality of the fruit, we combine sustainable farming practices, innovative techniques, and scientific research. Stoller is LIVE (Low Impact Viticulture and Enology) and Salmon Safe certified. Our innovative techniques include solar-powered weather stations providing up-to-the-minute data during harvest, an recycling tunnel sprayer to minimize drift, and an irrigation system fed by a rain pond and wells on the property.

Winery Design & Visitor Information

Our winery is the first winery to receive LEED® Gold certification in the world. At Stoller, we blend traditional gravity flow winemaking with energy-efficient systems in order to preserve the quality of the fruit and reduce our environmental impact. The tasting room is open to visitors daily from 11:00am to 5:00pm. The building combines environmental sustainability and high-efficiency design, and harvests 100 percent of its energy through a 236-panel solar panel installation. Notable design features include a green roof, skylights, salvaged timber, and an EV charging station for electric vehicles. Both buildings were designed by Ernest Munch, Architect Urban Planner, LLC, a Portland-based specialist in environmentally-inspired architecture.
