Bethel Heights Estate Vineyard

Address: 6060 Bethel Heights Rd. NW, Salem, Oregon 97304
Website: bethelheights.com
Description: Bethel Heights Estate includes the original 50-acre Bethel Heights Vineyard established in 1977, the adjacent Justice Vineyard established in 1999, and the adjacent Lewman Vineyard established in 2002 by Dennis Lewman and purchased by Bethel Heights in 2020.
Bethel Heights Vineyard is planted on a south-facing hillside rising from 480 to 620 feet in elevation, with shallow, well-drained soils of volcanic origin, primarily Nekia with some Jory. Theoldest vines were planted in 1977-1979 to own-rooted Pommard and Wädenswil Pinot noir andWente clone Chardonnay. Most of those own rooted vines are still alive and well and producing thebest wines of their life. More recent plantings after 1994 include Dijon Pinot noir clones 114, 115, 667, and 777, and Chardonnay Dijon 76, all on phylloxera resistant rootstock.
The 26-acre Justice Vineyard sits adjacent to Bethel Heights on the south, lower on the hillside, with soils that show the transition between volcanic layers above and the older underlying marine sedimentary layers of the original ocean seabed below. It is planted primarily to Pinot noir, including Dijon clones 114, 115, 667, 777, 943 and Pommard. Three blocks of Chardonnay include Dijon 76,
95 and 548. All the vines at Justice are on phylloxera resistant rootstock
The Lewman Vineyard sits right next to Justice Vineyard on the east and shares similar elevation and soil. Only 6 acres are planted so far, all Pinot noir, all on rootstock, planted between 2002 and 2016. The clones are 115, 667, 777, 943 and Pommard.

Bieze Vineyard

Address: 4410 Lone Star Road NW, Salem, Oregon 97304
Owners: Jerry & Sarah Bieze
Website: biezevineyard.com
Description: Bieze Vineyard sits a mile and a half up a gravel road, on a 100-year-old homestead with a classic white farmhouse and red barn.  On a clear day, you can see 5 mountains in the distance, from Washington State to Central Oregon.  At an elevation of 600-680 feet, the vineyard benefits from the cool breezes of the Van Duzer Corridor, which, together with sunny days, allow the growing season to be longer and more gradual, and further deepen the flavor and complexity of the fruit.  Ritner, Nekia, and Jory soils provide minerality to the wines produced from Bieze fruit. Our 40 acre ecologically diverse site, with spring-fed pond and oak pasture, was first planted to grapes in 2008 and currently has 25 acres of Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, and Pinot Blanc.  We are a Salmon Safe and LIVE (Low Impact Vitaculture and Enology) Certified vineyard.  The Bieze family takes great pride in the fruit we grow and we appreciate the winemakers who express so beautifully the terroir of our vineyard in the wines they craft from our fruit.

Björnson Estate Vineyard

Address: 3635 Bethel Heights Rd NW, Salem, Oregon 97304
Website: http://bjornsonwine.com/
Description:
Our mission is simple:  care for the land, make exceptional wine and enjoy life’s journey.  Exceptional wine begins in the vineyard; that’s why our vineyard is certified Salmon-Safe and sustainable by L.I.V.E. (Low Input Viticulture and Enology).  We believe that sustainable farming makes better wine.  Oregon “vineyard lore” suggests that abundant poison oak indicates a great site.  Happily for us (except when Mark used a chain saw to remove some massive plants), we’re covered under both schools of thought.

Bois Joli Vineyard

Address: 4875 Millies Lane, Amity, Oregon 97101
Contact:
541-908-2515
Description:
Bois Joli sits on the southwest facing tip of the Amity Hills, overlooking the city of Amity and the Coast Range, directly facing the Van Duzer Corridor.  Befitting its name (“Pretty Woods”), the vineyard is surrounded by a lovely oak/Douglas-fir forest that is rich with wildlife.  John and Nodie Ingraham founded the vineyard in 1983 by planting 2 acres of ungrafted Riesling vines (clones unknown), hauling hoses for water and controlling weeds with a push mower.  Rob Kistler and Barb Bond purchased the vineyard in 2009 (half Dijon clones, 777 and 115, and half Pommard clone 91) and 1 acre of Chardonnay (clone 95) in 2013.  This is a fairly high elevation site, averaging about 650’.  Soils are mostly sedimentary (Willakenzie) with a small area of Jory.  The vineyard is LIVE certified.

Brooks Estate Vineyard

Address: 9360 SE Eola Hills Road, Amity, Oregon 97101
Website: brookswine.com
Description:
In 2009, we purchased the Eola Hills Vineyard. This site was originally planted between 1973 and 1977 with pinot noir and riesling.  We still have 10 acres (5 of each varietal) on its’ own rootstock. The remaining acres are mostly pinot noir with a tad of pinot gris. In 2012, we are proud to announce that our Estate Vineyard was certified by Demeter for Biodynamic farming principles! While we have practiced biodynamics in the vineyard since 2002, we finally got around to completing the paperwork for certification!

Bryn Mawr Estate Vineyard

Address: 5955 Bethel Heights Rd. NW, Salem, Oregon 97304
Website: brynmawrvineyards.com
Description: Bryn Mawr Vineyards is located  near Salem, Oregon,  in the central Willamette Valley.   Our 15 acre Eola Hills vineyard is located high above the valley floor ,  providing spectacular views of both the Coastal and Cascade  Mountain ranges.   The soils of Bryn Mawr are volcanic in origin and, like others in the Eola-Amity Hills, tend  to be shallower than other areas in the Willamette Valley.  The afternoon breezes that come from the Van Duzer Pass cool our grapes and preserve their natural acidity, creating bright, fresh wines that also reflect the structure and depth of our terroir. Our grapes are planted in blocks reflecting  differences in slope, elevation and exposure, as well as the Lauer family members for whom each block has been named.

Calamity Hill Vineyard

Address: 9779 SE Hillview Drive, Amity, Oregon 97101

Description:
Calamity Hill Vineyard and Farm is located on Walnut Hill at the northern end of the Eola-Amity Hills AVA.  Our small vineyard and olive planting is at an elevation of 480 to 530 feet. We enjoy a view of the Willamette Valley with the Cascades and Mount Hood in the distance. Calamity Hill is among the smallest vineyards producing wine for sale in Oregon. We are so small we don’t talk about acreage planted.  Instead, we focus on each grapevine, 1910 in total. The vineyard was planted in May of 2005, and covers just 1.75 acres of land.We tend 500 Pinot Gris vines, all 152 clone on 101-14 rootstock. Our Pinot Noir, totaling 1410 vines, consists of five combinations of rootstock and clones. Our farm is made up of entirely deep Jory soils, ideal for dry farming pinot noir and pinot gris grapes.

Canary Hill Vineyard

Address: 980 Oak Grove Road, Salem, Oregon 97304
Website: kenwrightcellars.com
Description: The Canary Hill vineyard, owned by Ken and Karen Wright and managed by Seth Miller, is located in the Eola-Amity Hills AVA, 9.5 miles west of Salem, Oregon and in the southwest end of the AVA. It was planted in 1983 by Dick and Nancy Daniel at an elevation of 450-550 feet on an eastern facing slope. This 21-acre property has 17.5 acres in vine on 10 X 5 foot and 10 X 6 foot spacing. Canary Hill is planted in 100% Pinot Noir with 54% Pommard clone, 34% 777 clone, 7% 114 clone and 5% 115 clone. Canary Hill is made up of Nekia and Jory soil derived from its volcanic parent material located 10-12 feet deep within the soil profile. Once roots have fully engaged the parent material, we find that our Pinot noir planted on volcanic sites tends to have red and blue fruit focused aromatics and flavor profiles. Canary Hill Pinot noir often has a lush texture and bright acidity.

Carter Vineyard

Description: The Carter vineyard, owned by Ken and Karen Wright and managed by Seth Miller, is located in the Eola-Amity Hills AVA, 10 miles West of Salem in the Southwest end of the AVA.

The soil at Carter is mostly Nekia soil derived from its volcanic parent material located 2 to 3 feet deep within the soil profile. Once roots have fully engaged the parent material, we find that our Pinot noir planted on volcanic sites tends to have more fruit focused aromatics and flavor profiles. Carter Pinot Noir often exhibits dark blue and black fruits supported by firm acidity and moderate tannins.

Crawford Beck Vineyard

Address: 9100 SE Amity Road, PO Box 670, Amity, Oregon 97101
Contact: 503-835-0828
Website: crawfordbeck.com
Description:
The Crawford Beck Vineyard (CBV) is a venture of David and Jeanne Beck. The Eola Amity Hills AVA is quite different from the other Willamette Valley AVAs, and the CBV is distinct in its own micro-terroir.  Its soils are of volcanic origin, having been laid down by lava flows that occurred some 15 million years ago.  These clay-loam soils overlay ancient marine sediments that in many places are not far below the volcanic soils.  Furthermore, the CBV lies on the gentle slopes of a swale that faces south-southwest, looking across the Willamette Valley toward the gap in the Coast Range through which cooling breezes flow into the Valley.  These breezes blow steadily all summer, bathing the CBV slopes at night with relief from the day’s heat so essential for our grape varieties.  The altitude of the CBV slopes ranges from 387 feet to 521 feet above sea level. A former cattle ranch, the conversion of the farm to a vineyard began in 1996.  The plantings now include 11.29 acres of pinot noir (clones 115, Swan, 60, and Pommard), 1.19 acres of pinot gris (clone 3), and 2.08 acres of chardonnay (clones 76 and 96).  The vineyard is farmed sustainably and is certified by LIVE for its management practices.  Grapes from the Crawford Beck Vineyard are sold to acclaimed wineries throughout the valley.

Cubanisimo Estate Vineyard

Address: 1754 Best Rd NW, Salem, Oregon 97304
Website:
cubanisimovineyards.com
Description:
The vineyards face southeast from a 650 foot elevation and have sweeping views of Oregon’s wine rich Willamette Valley. Initially in 1991, eight acres of Pommard grapes were planted on Jory and Nekia soils of the Eola-Amity Hills AVA. We planted two more acres of Pinot clones (115 & 777), on rootstock (101-14) in 2001 and we planted 2.5 acres of Pinot Gris in 2007. Early harvests provided grapes for King Estate, Erath and Evesham Wood. In 2003, Cubanisimo started producing estate wines with 540 cases produced. Currently, we are producing approximately 800 cases of Estate Pinot Noir each year and another 1000 cases that blend our estate grapes with other Pinot Noir grapes sourced from vineyards in the Willamette Valley. We produce about 150 cases annually of our Rosado de Pinot Noir with our estate grapes and plan to increase our Pinot Gris production as our vineyard begins producing more fruit. Extracting the finest elements nature will yield from the grapes and the terroir are at the heart of Cubanisimo’s winemaking philosophy. We feel the fine balance of stress and nurture achieved by the 5 x 7 foot spacing and the absence of irrigation will add complexity and depth of flavor to our Pinots

Sitting on the back side of Walnut Hill at the North end of the Eola-Amity Hills AVA, Dukes Family Vineyards is 58 acres of South facing slope and elevations running from 560 feet to 260 feet. The soils are primarily Willakenzie (dark brown to yellowish-brown silty-clay loam, sandstone origin) and Yamhill (silt loam, volcanic basalt origin) with several additional soils types scattered throughout the sixteen-acre vineyard, all serving to add a level of complexity to the wines. Seven and a half acres of the vineyard (Pinot Noir Dijon clones 113, 114 and 115 as well as a small block of Syrah, all grafted onto 3309 root stock) were planted between 1996 and 2000.  The vines are planted with the standard nine foot rows and four and one half foot in-row spacing (approximately 1,000 plants pre acre). We have implemented cultural practices in our farming methodologies which minimize the use of chemicals and fertilizers while greatly enhancing biodiversity.

Eola Springs Vineyard

Address: 3110 Oak Grove Road, Rickreall, Oregon 97371
Contact: 503-399-1475
Description:
Originally planted in 1972 by Carl Stevens, the Eola Springs Vineyard is owned by Judy Jordan of Capra Vineyards. This pioneering vineyard, with its ideal position in the throat of the Van Duzer corridor, has proven itself time and time again to be a jewel that dynamically improves. Beyond the original 1972 planting, additional vines were added in 1980, 1984, 1990, 2006, and continuing today, reflecting the evolution of Willamette Valley and the Eola-Amity Hills AVA. The lower elevation of this site is silty Missoula Flood Deposits that are deep on the terrace and thin upslope where the silty material mantles older alluvium and clayey paleosol of the foothills. The lower and midslope positions have soils formed in sedimentary rocks and the silt thins. Higher up the slope, the soils formed in basalt and in basalt over sedimentary rocks. The Eola-Amity Hills are capped with Columbia River Basalt. Diversity makes this vineyard tremendously complex with blocks varying by slope break, aspects, and soil. One third of the 178-acre vineyard is planted predominantly to Pinot Noir and Chardonnay along with blocks of Muscat and Pinot Gris. The second third is in development and the remaining portion open.

Julon Vineyard

Address: 3480 Oak Grove Road, Rickreall, OR, 97371
Website: mouvancewinery.com
Description:
Julon Vineyard sits on a fifty-acre site in the Eola-Amity Hills AVA, just five miles northwest of Salem, Oregon. The property ranges from 225 to 410 feet in elevation, with southern and southwestern slopes facing the Oregon Coast Range. A variety of soils are present on the site, including Chehulpum, Bellpine, Willakenzie, Steiwer, and Rickreall. These soils were formed through the weathering of the marine sediments that now lie beneath them. The vineyard is divided into seven blocks along the upper half of the property. Four different Pinot Noir clones are planted throughout these blocks—Pommard, Wadenswil, Dijon 115, and Dijon 777. The vines are grafted onto phylloxera-resistant rootstocks 3309 and 101-14. To the west of the Eola-Amity Hills lies the Van Duzer Corridor, a gap in the Oregon Coast Range. This gap channels marine winds from the Pacific Ocean into the lower Willamette Valley, resulting in relatively cool temperatures. This moderating effect allows the grapes to develop a balanced acidity even in the midst of the Willamette Valley’s warm summers.

Keeler Estate Vineyard

Website: keelerestatevineyard.com
Description:
Keeler Estate Vineyard is proud to be located in the well-known Eola-Amity Hills AVA.  We are a picturesque, certified organic and biodynamic vineyard. It is our strong belief that we must care for our land and therefore stay away from using pesticides and harmful chemicals. Our first blocks of Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris were planted in 2008. Then we added Chardonnay and a small block of Riesling. There are now 30 acres of plantings with elevations from 220 to 500 feet and an exposure south southwest. The higher elevations are an ancient ocean bed consisting of soils such as Steiwer, Chehulpum and shallow sedimentary soils. People delight in visiting our place, tasting our wines while they walk around a natural ecosystem with diverse plantings, ponds and streams and a magnificent observation deck overlooking the valley south to Corvallis.

Keller Family Vineyard

Koosah Farm

Owner: Kevin & Carla Chambers
Description: Kevin and Carla Chambers have been serving the Oregon wine industry since 1980. Their first vineyard was Resonance in the Yamhill-Carlton AVA. There they pioneered Biodynamic practices in Oregon. From 1997-2014, they owned and operated Results Partners, Oregon’s largest vineyard management firm, and Oregon Vineyard Supply, which provided products and services to vineyard operators throughout the Pacific Northwest. In 2013, they sold Resonance to the famed Maison Louis Jadot of Burgundy, and purchased the property that has become Koosah Farm. Koosah Farm sits atop the windswept crest of the Eola-Amity Hills at 700-1100′. The steeply-sloped, profoundly-rocky 82.5 acre site consists of 44 acres of vineyard and 6 acres of orchard. Here they employ permaculture techniques involving hundreds of species of flowering and fruiting trees, shrubs and vines. This plant diversity encourages a healthy microbiome to naturally reduce disease and insect pressures. Additionally, Kevin has again pioneered new farming practices through the use of compost-teas brewed on farm to aid in building soil fertility, promoting microbial diversity and preventing disease. In February 2021, their son Nate, after serving as a grape agronomist for 10 years, became the farm manager.

Le Puits Sec Vineyard

Address: 3795 Wallace Rd. NW, Salem, Oregon 97304
Website: eveshamwood.com
Description:
Evesham Wood was founded by Russ and Mary Raney in 1986. After a comprehensive search throughout the Willamette Valley, they chose a site for the estate vineyard, “Le Puits Sec” (French for “the dry well” which we have in the vineyard). There they planted eight acres, three of Pinot Noir (Pommard clone), two each of Chardonnay (108 clone) and Pinot Gris (Colmar clones) and one of Gewurztraminer. Since then, four and one half acres have gradually been added (1.5 ac. of 3 Dijon clones of Pinot Noir, 1 ac. of 3 Dijon clones of Chardonnay, and one ac. Pinot Gris, as well as small plantings of the German variety, Rieslaner and the Austrian variety, Gruener Veltliner). In addition, the original two acres of Chardonnay were grafted over to Pinot Noir in 1999. The gently sloping, east-facing vineyard is tightly-spaced and nestled on a low terrace (300-420 ft. elevation) on the eastern side of the Eola-Amity Hills ridge. This area, known locally as “Spring Valley”, has already proven to have one of Oregon’s best micro-climates for the production of fine wines from Burgundian and Alsatian varieties. It is here that the rather shallow volcanic basalt soils allow us to achieve the low yields we seek for wines of great intensity and complexity. As well, it is the uniqueness of this “terroir” that gives Le Puits Sec wines their signature.

Pearlstad Vineyard

Address: Amity, Oregon
Owner:
Ken Pearlman
Contact: ken@pearlstad.com
Description: Pearlstad Vineyard was planted in 2017 by Ken Pearlman and Dana Baker. The vineyard, located near the middle of the Eola Amity Hills and at the center of the Van Duzer Corridor, is part of an 85-acre property that is covered by fir, oak and madrone. It is planted to 16 acres of Chardonnay; clones 124, 76, 95, 96, 548 and Wente, and 2 acres of Pommard. The geology of the site is marine siltstone and sandstone. The soil types are Steiwer, Chehulpum, and Wellsdale-Willakenzie. The vineyard sits atop an ancient shoal, which formed between about 30 million and 12 million years ago. As the sea that was created by the Coast Range drained, it left behind several thousand feet of siltstone containing many shallow-water marine animals such as pelecypods (oysters, clams, mussels) and gastropods (snails, slugs). Today, these siltstone beds are known as the Eugene Formation and they can be found in several of the vineyards in the Eola-Amity Hills. Pearlstad Vineyard has a beautiful example of the Eugene Formation, with siltstone and sandstone running throughout the vineyard. We believe these soils are an important part of the terroir of the site and help to make it a special place to grow Chardonnay grapes.

Pelos Sandberg Vineyard

Address: 7895 SE Amity Rd, Amity, Oregon 97101
Website: iotacellars.com
Description:
From the onset, “harmony with nature” has played a key role in our practices, so naturally, we have preserved the wild habitat surrounding our vineyard. Oaks, maples, firs and creeks divide our blocks. A buffer zone of trees, grasses, ferns, blackberries and rocks is kept around our creeks to prevent erosion. In the vineyard, a cover crop of mixed grasses, vetch and legumes is used to avoid runoff in the winter, but also to attract a diverse insect population and add nutrients back into the soil. In growing our grapes, we continue to choose sustainable and organic practices whenever possible. To control weeds, we prefer to hand hoe and in-row cultivate. Our vines are non-irrigated to promote deep root growth. We use a well thought out vineyard management program to ensure a healthy canopy and fruit. Most importantly, we relish the touch of the human hand in all aspects of what we do from pruning in the early spring to harvesting our fruit in the fall. Pelos Sandberg Vineyard is a LIVE-certified vineyard as of 2010.

Seven Springs Vineyard

Address: 4180 Lone Star Rd NW, Salem, Oregon 97304
Website: eveninglandvineyards.com
Description:
Evening Land’s Seven Springs Vineyard is situated in the southeastern Eola-Amity Hills. Initially planted to 65 acres in the early 1980s, today the vineyard is home to ~90 acres of Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and – to a smaller scale – Gamay Noir. A majority of the vineyard is planted to Pinot Noir and consists of several different grape clones well-suited to the climate, including: Calera, Pommard, Swan and Mt. Eden. Having historically produced some of the finest grapes in America, Seven Springs was selected as one of the top 10 vineyards in America by Food and Wine Magazine. The Pacific Ocean breeze, volcanic soil, eastern exposure, and high elevation contribute to the natural preservation of the grapes’ acidity and enrich the wines with elegant flavors and minerality. The most prevalent soil type at Seven Springs is the iron-rich, volcanic soil known as Jory – it is well-drained, having formed from deposits of igneous rock – with just a thin layer of top soil right along the volcanic flow line. Since Evening Land began farming the property in 2007, the vineyard has been LIVE certified and fully converted to organic and biodynamic farming practices.

Toluca Lane Vineyard

Address: P.O. Box 273, Amity, Oregon 97101
Website: tolucalane.com
Description:
The Toluca Lane Pinot Noir Vineyard is family owned, boutique, densely planted, and is located near the top of Walnut Hill in the Eola-Amity Hills AVA. Two of the predominant influences of the characteristics of the wines from this area are the shallow Nekia soils and the Van Duzer corridor. The Nekia soils primarily contain weathered volcanic basalt from ancient lava flows. These shallow, well drained soils tend to produce smaller grapes with greater concentration of flavor. The Van Duzer corridor is a break in the coastal range that allows cool ocean winds to flow into the area dropping afternoon temperatures. These afternoon and evening breezes help provide the cool nights that keep acids firm and are essential for optimal ripening.

Witness Tree Estate Vineyard

Address: 7111 Spring Valley Rd NW, Salem, Oregon 97304
Website: witnesstreevineyard.com
Description:
Located within the Eola-Amity Hills in the center of the Willamette Valley (about 50 miles east to west and 150 miles north to south), Witness Tree Vineyard is roughly an hour east of the Pacific Ocean.  It is bounded on the west by the relatively low Coastal Range of Oregon and on the east by the Cascade Mountain Range. At the top of our hills are the basalt soils known as Nekia and Jory.  Through the mid-slope we have a band of marine sedimentary soils known as Willakenzie.  At the lower elevations in the vineyard we find 15,000 year-old alluvial soils that were washed in at the end of the last ice age. Year-after-year of farming the same vineyard sites at Witness Tree Vineyard gives Steven Westby, our Winemaker and Vineyard Manager an intimate relationship with the land and its nuances. The vineyards have not been managed with a focus on soil-science, but rather by concentrating on vine growth and the resultant wine quality, learning year-to-year how to best change and adapt trellising, fertilization, cover crop, etc. in order to maximize their character.

Our densely planted vineyard is on a rocky hillside in the north Eola Hills. Small lot fermentation with native yeasts allows the full expression of Pinot noir to emerge.

Zeitoun Vineyard

Address: 20550 Madrona Ln., Amity, OR 97101
Description: At just seven acres planted exclusively to Pinot Noir, Zeitoun Vineyard is the smallest of the three vineyards farmed by Coelho Winery. Located on the western side of the crest of the hill on Amity Rd, the soils are silty loam, both Cottrell and Saum-Parrett complex, yielding the darkest-flavored Pinot Noir of all our vineyards. We took over the vineyard in 2014 and started bottling single vineyard wines from it in 2015. Lost now to time, records about which clones were planted in the vineyard are gone, but the resulting wines are always customer favorites. We continue to rehabilitate this vineyard year by year and are coaxing our mysterious fruit to do wonderful things in bottle.
