Winter’s Hill Estate began when Peter and Emily Gladhart planted 20 acres of vines in 1990. 35 acres of Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris, and Pinot Blanc now provide all of the grapes used to make Winter’s Hill wines.
Our vineyards are located in the Dundee Hills, where Oregon’s modern wine industry began in the late 1960s. We are fortunate to have ideal conditions for a vineyard. Elevation ranges from 525-750 feet above sea level, with a gentle Southern slope. Our soil is Jory, the most sought-after soil type for producing premium wines in Oregon. Our property borders several of Oregon’s best-known vineyards, including Domaine Serene, Stoller, Eyrie, and Vista Hills.
