We are fortunate to work with a selection of the top northern Willamette Valley vineyards, covering four unique sub-AVAs - Chehalem Mountains AVA, Dundee Hills AVA, Eola-Amity Hills AVA & Yamhill-Carlton AVA.
The diversity of soils, climates, elevations found in these special growing regions creates some facinating wines and allows us to share the stories of these small, family-owned farms with you.
Featured Farm: La Dolce Vita Vineyard
Roughly 25% of the Pinot noir fruit produced each year by Shea Vineyard is used by Shea Wine Cellars for its releases. The other 75% of the Pinot noir fruit is sold to some of the finest winemakers in Oregon and California.
Fairsing Vineyard is a sustainable Pinot noir vineyard nestled inside an 80-acre Certified Family Forest, distinguished by biodiversity, varied topography and panoramic views of the Northern Willamette Valley.
Zenith Vineyard's soil structure is comprised of sedimentary soils from the Missoula floods 14,000 years ago, laid down on a bed of ancient sea floor that is hundreds of feet thick. The soils generally fall into the silty-clay category.
