Excellence prevails. In the 44-year history of Wine Spectator, there are only 12 Chardonnays from Oregon that have rated 95 points or higher; 10 are from Evening Land. Located at The Dundee Hotel, Evening Land’s tasting room offers a serene setting so you can enjoy the full range of award-winning wines from their Seven Springs Estate, as well as limited release and library bottlings. In addition to chardonnay, they grow and make pinot noir and gamay from their historic estate vineyard in Oregon’s Eola-Amity Hills.

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.
Celebrate one of life’s great simple pleasures: wine! Tertulia is a Spanish word meaning, “a social gathering of friends.” Tertulia Cellars believe that tasting and enjoying with others is the final component of their wines. Their focus is making wines of quality and distinction with the finest fruit from their estate vineyards in the Walla Walla Valley. Bring your own tertulia, and savor Tertulia Cellars’ wines in an atmosphere of true warmth and hospitality in their Oregon tasting room at The Dundee Hotel.
