Estate vineyard on the farm
St. Columban Vineyard, Willamette Valley AVA - Oregon
As with any farm, each generation must encounter and adapt to agricultural changes, trends in the market, and current opportunities. In 1995, we saw the potential of planting a vineyard to diversify the overall crop structure of the farm, and participate in the rising star of the Oregon wine industry.
Fifteen acres of Pinot Blanc, Pinot Gris, Pinot Noir, and Chardonnay were planted on a gentle south facing slope a mile from the Homeplace. Deep rooted, now of a mature age, St. Columban varietals provide complexity to the Lady Hill wines. The vineyard is enclosed within a 200 acre parcel of the farm with beautiful Mission Creek flowing through it, and bordered by the signature fir trees of the Northwest. It has served as a venue for a number of memorable farm to fork and other premium vineyard dinners.
