Antica Terra Vineyard


Website: anticaterra.com

Antica Terra is an 11-acre vineyard located on a rocky hillside in the Eola-Amity Hills AVA. The first vines were planted here in 1989 in a clearing within the oak savannah. The geology of the site is extremely unusual; in this place, the remains of a far older prehistoric seabed rise to the surface, leaving the vines to struggle, without topsoil, amongst a fractured mixture of sandstone sown with fossilized oyster shells.

Bethany Heights Vineyard

503-835-0302 & 503-502-4835

3,500 vines were planted in March of 2007 on 3 acres.  Soil is Jory.  Elevation is 900’ at the top, down to 700’ at the bottom. Pinot Gris clone is 152 – 1 acre is planted at the top elevation. Pinot Noir clones are 667/777 – 2 acres are planted at the lower elevation. We got our first harvest in 2009.  In 2010 the birds ate everything – we now net.  In 2011 the grapes never ripened.  2012 was a very good year and although we didn’t get the quantity, the quality was very good and we sold all of our grapes.  2013 bud break occurred two weeks ahead of the 2012 crop and we harvest the Pinot Noir on September 17th and the Pinot Gris on October 9th – we sold all of our grapes to two wineries.

Big Cheese Vineyard


Address: 17945 SE Walnut Hill Road, Amity, OR 97101

Big Cheese Vineyard is composed of 3.5 acres planted to Pinot Noir grapes. Clones are 777 and Pommard. We planted in 2008 and Bob Bailey was our vineyard contractor. We built a custom house on the site in 2011-12. We farm in the summer and live in Ft. Lauderdale, FL in the winter. Joe and Marilyn Merrit are the owners and Joe is the Big Cheese.

Björnson Estate Vineyard

Website: bjornsonwine.com
Year First Planted: 2006
Acres Planted: 28
Vineyard Certifications: LIVE Certified Sustainable
Varietals Grown: Pinot Noir, Gamay Noir, Chardonnay, Auxerrois

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.

The vineyard is planted on what used to be fruit orchards, now considered to be the heart of Eola-Amity’s wine country. Joe calls this western mid-slope of the Eola-Amity Hills the Eola-Bench, or the 90210 neighborhood of the Eola-Amity Hills. The estate is 485 – 625 feet in elevation and just over 21 acres total with 11.98 acres planted to vines. Varietals include Pinot Noir clones 114 and 115 planted in 2000 and Chardonnay clones 548 and 76 planted in 2016. New to the property is Sauvignon Blanc planted in 2021.

The vineyard is predominantly south and southwest facing. This vineyard aspect lends full advantage to the growing season sunlight, while simultaneously influenced by the cooling Van Duzer corridor winds which funnel Pacific Ocean breezes to the west slope of the Eola-Amity Hills. This unique combination of microclimates translates to a longer drawn out ripening season. A range of soils can be found across the farm with the planted vineyard consisting of Jory volcanic basalt and Nekia soils. The old vines produce smaller yields with exceptional concentration of flavors. The diversity in clonal makeup and influence of microclimates within the property produces fruit with great intensity and power in some blocks and elegance with finesse in others.

Contact: 
541-908-2515

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.

Thus, the first vineyard plantings in 2016 were to Pinot Noir and Chardonnay with 5×7 spacing. Additional Chardonnay vines were planted in 2019 and 2021 with a 4×7 spacing in our deeper Jory soils. In 2021, we also added plantings of Aligoté and Pinot Meunier. We have selected a diversity of clonal material to ensure that the wines made from our site tell a story about the uniqueness of Bracken.

We believe in maintaining clean soils and a clean environment. We farm organically and began biodynamic practices in 2019. Bracken is the estate vineyard for Perkins Harter wines.

The 18-acre property was developed with an approach to maintain the beauty and sense of place. The site will be farmed to produce the highest quality fruit and wines possible. The soils consist of the basalt /volcanic series on the upper half with Ritner, Nekia and Jory and the lower half is Steiwer soil composed of ancient uplifted ocean sediments. The vineyard is currently planted to about 4 acres of Pinot noir (clones 115, 777, 943, Pommard and Wadenswil) and 2 acres of Chardonnay (clones 76, 95 and 96).The vineyard is owned by Jessica Cortell and Doug King and managed by Vitis Terra Vineyards Services.

FAQ: Farming practices include organic and regenerative ag or no cultivation and no herbicide. Biodiversity is encouraged with wild flowers and native plants planted every year along with vegetable gardens and fruit trees.

Carter Vineyard


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. It was planted in 1983 by Jack and Kathleen Carter at an elevation of 325 feet on a southwestern facing slope. This 21.66 acre vineyard is planted on 9 X 6 foot spacing. Carter is 100% Pinot Noir with 34% Pommard clone, 21% 777 clone, 18% 667 clone, 16% 115 clone and 11% Wadenswil Clone. 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.

Daffodil Hill Vineyard


Soil: Jory
Perspective: West facing
Elevation: 
350-500ft
Clones: Dijon 667, Dijon 114 on 101-14 rootstock
Year Planted: 2002
Acres Planted: 21
Description: Daffodil Hill is our first Estate Vineyard.

While we love walking through all of our vineyards, Daffodil Hill is probably our favorite for a morning walk. You start under a beautiful old walnut tree outside the farmhouse and walk up the center ravine of the vineyard heading east. You ascend rapidly (the slope is west-facing, up to about 500 ft elevation) through the barn block planted in Dijon 667 clone halfway to the top.

You look back periodically, to the west and realize you can see both to the north and south, the coastal range, including the Van Duzer corridor and Mary’s Peak (the highest peak in the Oregon Coast range). As you continue on up to the top towards the Dijon 114 planting, it just becomes more and more magnificent. The wine always has an intense black cherry nose and palate with an herbal component of lavender, fennel, and rosemary. It reminds Rob of the smell of the earth that has been dry for a long time and then has its first rain – (we all know the smell) it’s called Petracore.

Five Points Vineyard is located in the Northwest section of the Eola-Amity Hills AVA and surrounded by native White Oak trees. Elevation is between 420 feet to 510 feet with a riparian area running through the vineyard, which results in Southeast and Northwest facing slopes. The riparian area also provides wildlife habitat and adds to the property’s biodiversity. Like most vineyards in the Willamette Valley, it is dry farmed. We purchased our 20-acre property in 2019, and worked with Results Partners to develop and manage a 10-acre vineyard.

The site has very diverse soils with seven different soil types, which are a mixture of marine sedimentary and volcanic basalt. For rootstock, shallow soils were paired with 3309, and for the moderate to deep soils, we used Schwarzmann and 101-14.  Eight acres of Pinot Noir and two acres of Chardonnay were planted in November 2020. For Pinot Noir clones we chose Pommard, 667, 777 and Mt. Eden, and for Chardonnay we selected the 76 clone. Our focus will be to produce grapes of exceptional quality resulting from high touch, sustainable and regenerative farming practices. We are using to the Simonet and Sirch (Sap Flow) pruning method to maintain vine health and optimize vine longevity. We are certified Salmon Safe and are becoming LIVE (Low Impact Viticulture and Enology) certified.  Our plan is to work towards becoming more organic and biodynamic.

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 animal fossils 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.

Website: iotacellars.com

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.

This climate, combined with the shallow, well-drained volcanic soils of the Nekia series that dominate this area, make the Eola-Amity Hills AVA one of Oregon’s most exciting winegrowing regions. Drouhin Oregon Roserock vineyard is LIVE and Salmon Safe Certified.

The vineyard is planted on what used to be fruit orchards, now considered to be the heart of Eola-Amity’s wine country. Joe calls this western mid-slope of the Eola-Amity Hills the Eola-Bench, or the 90210 neighborhood of the Eola-Amity Hills. The estate is 485 – 625 feet in elevation and just over 21 acres total with 11.98 acres planted to vines. Varietals include Pinot Noir clones 114 and 115 planted in 2000 and Chardonnay clones 548 and 76 planted in 2016. New to the property is Sauvignon Blanc planted in 2021.

The vineyard is predominantly south and southwest facing. This vineyard aspect lends full advantage to the growing season sunlight, while simultaneously influenced by the cooling Van Duzer corridor winds which funnel Pacific Ocean breezes to the west slope of the Eola-Amity Hills. This unique combination of microclimates translates to a longer drawn out ripening season. A range of soils can be found across the farm with the planted vineyard consisting of Jory volcanic basalt and Nekia soils. The old vines produce smaller yields with exceptional concentration of flavors. The diversity in clonal makeup and influence of microclimates within the property produces fruit with great intensity and power in some blocks and elegance with finesse in others.
