STEEP. DEEP. INTENSE
Great drainage defines great wine.
Burgundy’s Cote d’Or has Kimmeridgian limestone. Chateauneuf-du-Pape has rounded cobbles. Bordeaux’s finest wines are from gravel beds.
Vines with dry feet make the world’s best wines.
In the ‘80s’, Cliff and Allison Anderson searched years for the ideal site; a vineyard property where deeply rooted vines produce delicious wines. The quest ended at a steep massif of broken stones in the heart of Oregon’s Dundee Hills; an ancient landslide of broken basalt: Truly dry feet.
In 1992, Oregon wine pioneer Jack Meyers helped chisel out our vineyard.
Today, over two decades later, we organically farm vines on our steep, rocky slopes.
Anderson Family crafts wine in small lots with native yeast - moved entirely by gravity. Each vintage ages slowly in our cool cave resulting in wines smacking of spice with layers of flavor.
