Vista Hills Vineyard:
Our 42-acre, LIVE certified sustainable vineyard rests atop the storied Dundee Hills in Dayton, Ore. We are nestled between Domaine Serene to the East and stunning Valley views to the West, thirty-five miles southwest of Portland. Our vines occupy some of the most sought-after terrain in the region.
The resident Jory soil is brick-red in color and dense with nutrients. Its exceptional draining capacity is ideal for the area's many wet months. While half of our acreage is used for the Vista Hills label, the remaining fruit is sold to a host of local producers including Dobbes Estate, Adelsheim Vineyard, Le Cadeau, White Rose Wines and Elizabeth Chambers Cellar.
