CURRENT VINTAGES IN THE TASTING ROOM & ONLINE
PAST VINTAGES FROM OUR PORTFOLIO
At Stoller, our roots run deep. The family established the property in 1943 and the vineyard 50 years later. 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 25 years, he has patiently transformed the 400-acre property into the largest contiguous vineyard in Oregon’s Dundee Hills.
We control every step of the winegrowing and winemaking process, from pruning to bottling and everything in between. Melissa Burr, VP of Winemaking, works in concert with Jason Tosch, VP of Vineyard Operations, to oversee the site’s continued refinement. Together, they steward Bill Stoller’s legacy. The result is award-winning wines that are balanced, complex, and consistently exceptional.
Much has changed from the original Stoller family farm, but two things remain constant: our pioneering spirit and commitment to our farm. We continuously seek new ways to refine and protect our legacy, so that it can thrive for generations to come. Our winery was the first in the world to receive LEED Gold certification, attesting that our winery is sustainably built and environmentally friendly.
Featuring three guest homes, as well as the state-of-the-art tasting room with panoramic views of the vineyard, and the immersive Experience Center, we are honored to be ranked as a USA Today 10Best Tasting Rooms in their Reader’s Choice poll in 2016, 2018, 2019, 2020, and 2021, and Oregon’s Most Admired Winery by the Portland Business Journal for five consecutive years.
Stoller Family Estate is the largest contiguous vineyard in Oregon’s Dundee Hills, spanning 400 acres, with 225 under vine.
The vineyard is divided into 108 meticulously-farmed sections at elevations ranging from 210 to 650 feet. The property features eight planted varieties: Pinot Noir (70%), Chardonnay (25%), as well as Aligoté, Gamay Noir, Pinot Blanc, Pinot Meunier, Riesling, Syrah, Tempranillo, and Viognier. Our Pinot Noir clonal selection include Pommard, Wädenswil, 777, 667, 113, 114, 115, 828, 943, Calera, Mt. Eden, Swan, Martiti, and Jackson. Our Chardonnay, the largest estate planting in Oregon, features Dijon clones 76, 95, 96, and 548.
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 Input Viticulture and Enology), Salmon Safe, and B Corp certified. Our innovative techniques include solar-powered weather stations providing up-to-the-minute data during harvest, a 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 in the world to achieve LEED Gold certification. As part of achieving LEED certification, we blend traditional gravity flow winemaking with energy-efficient systems, and waste-water reclamation to preserve the quality of the fruit and reduce our environmental footprint.
Our tasting room combines environmental sustainability and high-efficiency design. Notable design features include a green roof, skylights, salvaged timber, and EV charging stations for electric vehicles.
Our 8,000 sq. ft. state-of-the-art Experience Center features emerging technologies that connect guests directly with new forms of wine education and provides a unique look at our estate. Using augmented reality art, Oculus virtual reality, interactive tasting tables, and high-quality curated videos projected on an immersive display, we hope to take every guest on a new adventure in wine.
Join us in our Experience Center or Tasting Room seven days a week by reservation. Our tasting flight is $20 and waived with a $50 purchase. Deli sandwiches, cheese and charcuterie boards, and á la carte items are available to purchase.
