Give!Guide Partnership with 1000 Friends of Oregon

The  Give!Guide sponsored by Willamette Week    is one of our regions most powerful engines for strengthening our community and  raising funds for local organizations.  Last year they helped raise almost $2 million, and this year the goal is even higher.


Winter’s Hill is proud to be partnering with 1000 Friends of  Oregon in this campaign.  1000 Friends is a leader in protecting farmland in Oregon.  Without their hard work in the past, the Oregon wine industry would not exist as it does today.  To continue to grow in a way that protects the beauty and long term health of the rural economy, we need to preserve and strengthen those protections.  You can learn more about our support for 1000 Friends of Oregon here, or watch their video below.

Each time someone (like you!) donates to 1000 Friends of Oregon through Give!Guide, Winter’s Hill Vineyard will match  the first $5. 

For each donation of $100 or more, we will schedule a private tasting for 4 at our winery.

One of the principle missions of Give!Guide is to promote charitable giving by young people.  To support that mission, Winter’s Hill will also give a complimentary tasting for two people for each donation made by someone younger than 36 (but older than 21).

A passion for wine, agriculture, and family business has taken me around the world on an exciting tour. Winter's Hill Estate is a family partnership with my wife Delphine and my parents, where we produce Pinot noir, Pinot gris, and Pinot blanc from our 30 acre vineyard in the Dundee Hills.
