7 Acres of premium Pinot Noir is available for purchase! The vineyard is located on the Yamhill/Washington county line in the newly minted Laurelwood District AVA of Chehalem Mts. The vines are tucked between Quarry and Bell Rd in a small tree-lined canyon where it enjoys a perfect south aspect between 540 and 635 ft. elevation. We have never utilized irrigation and have farmed to LIVE Certification specifications for the past 5 years.

There are several notable vineyards within eyesight of our property that include; Anne Amie’s Twelve Oaks and Anam Cara Estate. We share 2 property lines with newly developed vineyards to our North and East. The area has an established reputation for quality.

Our family has been growing grapes for over 30 years in various locations. Although we consider ourselves conventional farmers, we do our best to work with winery partners to ensure farming practices fit their vision as well. If you have any questions or would like to visit the vineyard, please send me an email to schedule a time!
