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 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.

Varieties:

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

If you haven't heard already... A total solar eclipse is taking place over Oregon on August 21st!!

Expert eclipse meteorologist Jay Anderson says on his essential website eclipsophile.com that the Willamette Valley offers a very good chance of sunshine on eclipse day. Partnered with beautiful scenery and a glass of wine, there really isn't a better way to watch this rare event!

Please BYO picnic blanket or lawn chair and join us on our events lawn for an optimal viewing experience! We'll be providing catered breakfast and coffee, for those traditionalists, as well as pouring wine (it is Rosé season after all!). Your ticket gets you a spot on the lawn, eclipse viewing glasses, breakfast, coffee, and a goodie bag to commemorate the day - a bottle of YVV red,white, or rosé and a special Oregon Eclipse Riedel glass with the date of the event on it for the first 50 ticket holders.

Totality will be at approximately 10:18am, but the lead up to the total eclipse is worth the watch! Please arrive early to snag a spot, enjoy some breakfast, and take in this rare and totally awesome event!

Cheers!!
