The Estate

Yamhill Valley Vineyards is the oldest winery in the McMinnville AVA.  We grow, produce and bottle all of our own grapes right here at the vineyard.  Yamhill Valley Vineyards is located on a 150 acre estate in the rolling foothills of Oregon's Coast Range Mountains, one hour southwest of Portland in the Willamette Valley. The heart of our wine making is dedicated to Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris, Pinot Blanc, Chardonnay and Riesling. 

Since our first vintage in 1983 our wines have consistently won top honors in tastings and judgings across the nation. Our 1983 Pinot Noir was the first place preference in the famous Burgundy Challenge held at The Wine Center in New York City. From our beginning we have been stubbornly dedicated to the pursuit of a character that is distinctively Oregon and distinctively Yamhill Valley. Our goal is to bring forth from this unusual and exciting property the finest possible expression of its intensity, charm and uniqueness.

 

Soils:

Primarily Sedimentary clays with basalt intrusions with a complex array of Yamhill, Carlton, Chehalem, Panther Creek and Willakenzie soil types.

Pinot Noir, Pinot Blanc, PInot Gris, Chardonnay, and Riesling.

Compare the wine from the barrel to finished wines in our Tasting Room to taste how bottling and aging complete a wine.
