North Valley Vineyards
The “North Valley”, we work to nurture and craft our artisan wines, honoring the best raw materials that nature has to provide. Further, we seek a noteworthy diversity of sources from within the six sub-appellations of the region, giving us a broad palate of flavors and profiles from which to assemble our blends. So whether it is the Dundee Hills, Ribbon Ridge, the Eola-Amity Hills, Yamhill-Carlton District, Chehalem Mountain area, or McMinnville, we are there, spending time with our growers in their vineyards each week, from flowering all the way through harvest.
Hours: Thurs-Sun 11-5. For appointments Mon-Wed, please call to schedule an appointment.
A Pinot geek’s winery! That’s what wine reviewer Amy Glynn called Le Cadeau, where “excellent estate-grown Pinot Noir-Burgundian sensibility meets Willamette terroir.” Le Cadeau wine is produced exclusively with estate-grown fruit on Parrett Mountain in the Chehalem Mountains AVA. It’s diverse slope aspects, rocky soils, and carefully selected clones give their wines a fascinating range of characteristics that you can experience in Le Cadeau’s tasting room inside The Dundee Hotel.
Hours: Reservations requested, open Wed – Sun. Other weekday availability by appointment only.
The Dundee Wine Library makes its home on the beautiful Jory soils in the Dundee Hills AVA. This small family owned winery is operated by Henry and Araminta Miller, who are both native Oregonians, born and raised in the Willamette Valley. They have a young vineyard, and are proud to be able to say they source much of their fruit from several renowned estate vineyards in the Dundee Hills AVA, Ribbon Ridge AVA, and the Chehalem Mountains AVA, McMinnville AVA. The grand piano in their tasting room contributes to an elevated tasting experience. The Miller’s goal is to create an atmosphere of home in every bottle they serve.
Hours: Open Fridays & Saturdays from 11am – 7pm. Open Sundays from 11am – 5pm. Reservations not required.
