Join us for a walking tour of our Dundee Hills estate, including our winery, vineyards and oak woodlands. This is a chance to get up close and personal with the soil & vines that provide us the wonderful grapes we need to create our delicious wines. You will enjoy a guided tasting of our wines along with a detailed explanation of how the soil, slope, and environment all help to shape our wines. We'll finish with a gourmet picnic lunch on our patio overlooking the coastal mountains.
Meet at Winter's Hill Estate nestled in the Dundee Hills approximately 1 hour drive from Portland. We will introduce you to our wines and our winemaking techniques in our modern working winery. At Winter's Hill, tastings take place within the winery, so you can see and learn about the winemaking activities taking place that day.
Next we will walk approximately 1/2 mile to the vineyards where the grapes for our wines are grown. Wear appropriate clothing and comfortable shoes and be prepared to walk up and downhill. You will learn how the climate, soil, slope and farming techniques all impact the wines that we create. Depending on the season, we will explain the development of the vines and fruit, and the work that is being done in the vines.
After we return to the winery, we'll complete our wine tasting and enjoy a picnic lunch on our patio with sweeping views to the South and West. In the case of inclement weather, we will eat inside the winery.
