Vineyard Overview

Premium Quality Pinot Noir, Gamay Noir, and Riesling Wine Grapes from Oregon’s Northern Willamette Valley

Our goal at Cherry Grove Vineyard is to assist the site and the vines in producing the ideal fruit to enable each winemaker to achieve their unique vision for their wine.

To achieve this goal we follow a well defined data intensive process, extending over many years, employing the best available technology,  firmly grounded in proven techniques and long held traditional values, and certified to the highest sustainable standards.

Vineyard Properties


  • Nestled in the foothills of the Oregon Coast Range on steep south facing slopes overlooking the Patton Valley and the headwaters of the Tualatin river.
  • Situated just North of Yamhill in the rural southwestern corner of Washington county.
  • In the North west corner of the Willamette Valley AVA, just north of the Ribbon Ridge and Yamhill Carlton AVA’s in the Tualatin Hills AVA.


  • The soil is Melbourne, a unique combination of sedimentary and volcanic origins. The upper layers are sedimentary weathered silts and sandstones, the lower layers are fractured volcanic basalt. The soil has a high clay content which provides superior water retention during the dry summers.


  • Planted elevations range from a low of 250’ to a high of 550’, ideal for cool climate grapes such as pinot noir, Gamay Noir and Riesling. Each block has an individual orientation which also affects the flavor of its fruit.


  • The microclimate is representative of the site’s northern Willamette Valley location and elevation, but its specific location in the coast range foothills also provides both a rain shadow and a consistent cooling afternoon marine breeze.
