Vista Hills Vineyard & Winery

About

We produce small-batch estate Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris high atop the storied Dundee Hills. The Dundee Hills AVA is situated in the northern stretch of Oregon's famous and fertile Willamette Valley. We source only from our vineyard, applying a minimalistic approach in the cellar in order to showcase both site and vintage. We are family owned and operated and proud to be a part of the rich and growing tradition that is Oregon wine. In addition to producing wine, we sell about twent acres of estate fruit to prominent area wineries like White Rose, Dobbes, Le Cadeau and Elizabeth Chambers Cellar. Our high-elevation setting allows for slow ripenening conditions and affords tremendous panoramas of the Coastal range. Drop by the Treehouse Tasting Room for expansive views and award-winning Willamette Valley wines.

Winemaker

The majority of the cellar work is done by in-house winemaker Dave Petterson. A former cartographer, Petterson has been making wine since the late 1990's. He joined Vista Hills in 2007 after nearly a decade of work as assistant winemaker at Panther Creek Cellars in McMinnville.

History

What started in 1995 as a small vineyard block in the red soil of the Dundee Hills has sprouted into a boutique winery producing about 3,500 cases of world class wine a year.

Estate Vineyards / AVA

Our 42-acre vineyard sits high atop the Dundee Hills AVA, reaching heights of nearly 900 feet above sea level. The slow ripening conditions and well-draining Jory soil are ideal for Willamette Valley Pinot Noir. The vineyard is LIVE certified sustianable and Salmon Safe, producing premium fruit without taking a toll on the special environment its nestled in. All of Vista Hills wines are estate wines, crafted from blocks that vary by age, clone, elevation and exposure.

Just a stone's throw from the oldest Pinot Noir vines in the Valley, our estate rests within one of the most established and sought-after viticultural areas on the planet. We first planted in 1997 and have grown gradually since. We are as much a vineyard as we are a winery, having sold estate fruit to area labels such as Dobbes Estate, Adelsheim Vineyard, Soter Vineyards, White Rose and Panther Creek Cellars.
