Ivy Slope Estate Vineyard

Our ½ acre parcel of Chardonnay, planted on Susanne and Eric’s property in Beaverton, Ivy Slope Vineyard rests on a very steep slope once covered by English Ivy. 468 grapevines and over 100 roses call the terraced Ivy Slope Vineyard home. The vineyard started with 20 vines of Davis 108 clone, and a year later Dijon clones 76, 95, and 96 completed the planting. The first significant crop was harvested on September 15, 2014. The fruit shows great promise.

Croft Vineyards

Located outside of Monmouth, south of the Eola-Amity Hills AVA, Croft Vineyards organically farms two distinct sites. The main Croft Vineyard sits on a long, gradual, southeast facing slope while the Croft-Williamson Vineyard sits on a steep southwest facing slope. The soils are primarily Bellpine Series with small inclusions of other soil types, such as Willakenzie and Jory. Both Croft Vineyard sites sit within a slightly warmer microclimate protected from the Van Duzer Winds by the Coast Range and surrounding hills. Croft yields concentrated, deeply colored wines with red and dark berry notes alongside aromas of spice, and damp, lush pine forest.

Momtazi Vineyard

A Biodynamic vineyard in the McMinnville AVA, the site benefits from long, warm days. However, it is also one of the first vineyards in the Willamette Valley to cool down every evening due to its proximity to the Van Duzer Corridor, which funnels cold, coastal winds into the valley. We source from four blocks: 777 clone from the very heights of the vineyard, a steep block of 115 on the hillside, 113 from the bottom of the slopes, and 114 from around the pond at the northeastern part of the vineyard. A mix of sedimentary and volcanic soils, Momtazi Vineyard provides ripe flavors of dark berries and Eastern spices, backed by firm tannins and lively acidity.
