Cultivating an Enduring Legacy

Our vineyard is the largest contiguous vineyard in Oregon’s Dundee Hills. The property spans 400 acres, with 225 acres dedicated to growing vines at elevations ranging from 220 to 640 feet. The surrounding mountain ranges buffer the vineyard, creating a warmer microclimate that ensures consistent ripening.

These south-facing, tightly-spaced vines are planted to Jory, the fertile and well-drained red soil that has come to define the Dundee Hills.

Sustainable Farming & Innovation

We pride ourselves on running sustainable vineyards through a combination of responsible farming practices, innovative techniques, and cutting-edge scientific research. This approach helps us to continuously elevate the quality of the fruit we produce.

Vineyard Sustainability

Our sustainable vineyard is certified Low Input Viticulture and Enology (LIVE), which is the Northwest’s leading sustainability certification for vineyard farms. We collect winter runoff into a reservoir, which we use to irrigate during exceptionally dry years. All winery waste is composted on site and reused in the vineyards.

Innovative Techniques

Our state-of-the-art viticultural practices include mechanical “herbicide free” weeding systems, advanced recirculation, venturi and tornado sprayers to better apply and reduce total spray volume, and advanced weather stations to deliver actual vine sensory data.

Scientific Research

In addition to collaborating with leading viticultural researchers from Oregon State University, we’re conducting our own long-term experiments to further discover the vineyard’s full potential and provide thought leadership to the industry.

Pest Control

Our approach is to work with nature instead of fighting it. By fostering a habitat that supports a pests’ natural predators, we encourage the ecosystem that keeps them in check. We planted multiple acres of native perennial wildflowers that maintain the vineyard’s natural balance.
