We work with vineyards throughout the Pacific Northwest that are growing exceptional grapes and practice sustainable agriculture. Most are LIVE certified, Salmon-Safe, or using organic growing practices.

Apolloni Vineyards - Willamette Valley Pinot Noir
Grown by Alfredo and Laurine Apolloni

Armstrong Vineyard - Ribbon Ridge Pinot Noir
Grown by Doug and Michele Ackerman

Founded in 2007, this 16-acre Ribbon Ridge site has matured into a premier Pinot Noir producer that offers numerous south-facing, Pinot-exclusive slopes and one singular goal: “to produce outstanding grapes from this special site and to work with extremely dedicated, small-production winemakers who can reveal the personality of the vineyard in their wines.” This site is transitioning to organic and biodynamic practices.

Björnson Vineyard - Eola-Amity Hills Pinot Noir
Grown by Pattie and Mark Björnson

An idyllic 107-acre site in the heart of the Eola-Amity Hills AVA comprised of forest, field, stream, and three blocks of Pinot Noir. Pattie and Mark’s first priority is to “care for the land,” using certified LIVE farming practices to foster ecological balance in the vineyard and ultimately, balance in the grapes.

Dion Vineyard - Chehalem Mountains Syrah
Grown by Kevin Johnson and Beth Klingner

Planted in 1973 by Ron and Joanne Johnson, this vineyard grows many varieties, in particular Pinot Noir and a small plot of cool climate Syrah. The Johnson family has since expanded to 60 acres, with the younger generation of the Johnson family at the helm.

Lia’s Vineyard - Chehalem Mountains Pinot Noir
Grown by Todd Hansen

Lia’s Vineyard is situated in the Chehalem Mountains AVA and is comprised of a portion of the original well-regarded Jacob-Hart Vineyard. The soils are mostly jory, a dark reddish-brown silty clay loam.

Lichtenwalter Family Vineyard - Ribbon Ridge Pinot Noir
Grown by Michael Lichtenwalter

This vineyard consists of 15 acres on gentle, southwest-facing slopes and three soil types: Willakenzie, Bellpine, and Dupee. Lichtenwalter Family Vineyard is farmed utilizing LIVE guidelines and is currently moving towards biodynamic practices.

Oasis Vineyard - Horse Heaven Hills Syrah
Grown by Derek Hill

Managed with a philosophy of minimalism, Oasis allows the plants to do what they are designed to do. Hill explains, “We are here to shepherd that process rather than determine it.” We source our fruit from the oldest block of Syrah on the farm, planted in 1999.

Heart of the Hill Vineyard - Red Mountain Mourvédre
Grown by Scott Williams

Planted and run by the Williams family, an early proponent and developer of the Red Mountain AVA, and situated halfway up the mountain’s slope. This vineyard’s fantastic exposure and distinct soil characteristics made for some of the best Mourvédre grapes around.

High Pass Vineyard - Willamette Valley Huxelrebe
Grown by Dieter Boehm

This vineyard was founded in 1984 by Deiter Boehm in the southern end of the Willamette Valley, and continues to produce exceptional fruit year after year. Known for being sustainable before it was “cool,” they place great emphasis on farming with respect for the earth.

Yamhill Valley Vineyards - Willamette Valley Pinot Blanc & Riesling
Grown by Denis Burger and Stephen Cary

This vineyard is located on a 150-acre estate in the rolling foothills of Oregon’s Coast Range Mountains. The land is primarily sedimentary clays with basalt intrusions, with a complex array of Yamhill, Carlton, Chehalem, Panther Creek, and Willakenzie soils.

Stavig Vineyard - Happy Valley Melon de Bourgogne
Grown by Bruce Biehl for Trudy Stavig

Perched above Happy Valley, Oregon, this vineyard produces beautiful Melon grapes. The cuttings for this vineyard’s 3,000 nearly 20-year-old vines came from the old John Stewart vineyard (now DePonte), not long after it was determined that the vines were in fact Melon, rather than Pinot Blanc.

Kathken Vineyard - Eola-Amity Hills Pinot Noir Rosé
Grown by Ken and Kathy Slusser

A quiet, secluded 51-acre vineyard growing 34 acres of Pinot Noir (predominantly Pommard and Wädenswil clones), on Geneva Double Curtain and Carbonneau “Open Lyre” trellis systems, both of which, coupled with the 700’-900’ elevation, make for optimum production and quality.

Redman Vineyard - Ribbon Ridge Pinot Blanc & Arneis
Grown by Cathy Redman

Sitting at the crown on Ribbon Ridge with a gentle southern slope, this vineyard is LIVE certified, Salmon Safe, and Certified Sustainable. Seven distinct soil sub-varieties can be found within these 30 acres: Bellpin, Dupee, Goodin, Panther, Rickreall, Sitton, and Wellsdale.
