Our work is guided by respect for the environment, encouraging healthy diversity of life around us. We follow sustainable farming practices animated by biodynamic principles. Our winemaking methods are traditional; we work with a light hand and allow the flavors and aromas of the place to express themselves in each bottling.

Our Winery

Our just-completed winery was designed by the Portland architectural firm of Laurence Ferar & Associates in collaboration with Dominique Lafon, Thomas Savre, and Larry Stone. It is a winemaker’s winery in layout, with special features from crush pad to bottling line that ensure economy of effort all year round.
