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.

Typical Harvest:

Beginning October 1st and lasting 3 weeks.

Climate:

Cool climate; 2300 to 2500 degree days on average.  35 inches annual rainfall.  Protected weather-shadow of the marine-influenced climate.

Capacity:

15,000 cases.

The Willamette Valley has the complex soils and unique climate to produce some of the finest Pinot noir in the world. But day after day, vintage after vintage, we’re reminded that our people make this region special. Ours is a community of collaboration, generosity and idealism. We’ve learned that we’re stronger working together than working apart. And we believe no one should be hungry. November 1st through December 31st, Willamette Valley wineries and partners are teaming up to provide emergency food for our neighbors in need and support for fresh food programs through the Oregon Food Bank Network. It’s our opportunity to share our bounty during the holiday season and to give back to the people of our community. Won’t you join us? Visit any of the participants listed below with food or funds to contribute. Many wineries are offering discounts, tastings, or sweepstakes drawings to support the Food Share. Visit and donate during Wine Country Thanksgiving, one of our biggest events of the year. Note: winery hours vary. Please consult individual wineries before visiting.

At Yamhill Valley Vineyards we will be collecting both food and cash donations for the Yamhill County Action Partnership (YCAP).

--- Each can of food you bring in earns you one complimentary taste of wine; 5 cans earns you a complimentary flight (5 tastes)!

--- Tall Poppy Sweepstakes: A suggested donation of $10 gets you one ticket in the drawing of a bottle of 2012 Tall Poppy; $20 gets you THREE tickets...you do the math :)

So load up your car with cans of food (or some spare Hamiltons!) and make the most out of your wine tasting experience!

Cheers!
