Visitors are welcome to walk down to the vineyards. Wear sturdy shoes, and remember, the walk back is all uphill!
On your walk you will also see our restored Oak Savannah, a critical and rare habitat in the Willamette Valley.
Luciano Reyes manages the vineyard along with a team of long-term employees who perform the multitude of tasks necessary to produce exceptional fruit.
All of the pruning, training, shoot thinning, crop reduction, and multiple passes of tucking are done by hand. Harvest is also done by hand, using small clippers and five-gallon buckets. This means that each of our more than 42,000 plants is touched by a human hand more than 10 times a year.
Two tractors are used for cultivation, mowing, spraying, hedging, and transporting the harvested grapes to the winery. A total of 435 hours of tractor usage per year gives you lots of time to think.
