Failla Wines began in 1998, born of the opportunity to make expressive wines from single vineyard locations across California’s Western Sonoma Coast. Ehren, never one for slowing down, rapidly expanded the Failla stable from two wines in 1998 to over 30 wines two decades later. Our expansion into the Willamette Valley is indicative of Ehren’s forward-thinking nature and desire to constantly challenge himself with excellent vineyards in different regions. In 2001, we sourced fruit from the famous Goldschmidt Vineyard. Logistics proved a challenge, and we only made one vintage. Many years and a few plane trips later, we were offered Pinot from the legendary Seven Springs Vineyard, and the Oregon bug officially bit again. In 2016, we made 6 wines from all over the Willamette Valley (including Gamay!), and in 2017 we expanded the lineup to include Chardonnay, Riesling, and Gruner Veltliner. Long-term, we plan to develop a vineyard at our 80-acre site in the Van Duzer Corridor AVA, located southwest of our current Tasting Room in the Eola-Amity Hills.
