In 1986, David and his wife Susan joined two other couples to found Laurel Ridge on the former site of an 1880s winery near Forest Grove. By 2000, the Teppolas were the winery’s sole owners. In 2001, Laurel Ridge moved to a new gravity-fed winery on the family farm.
After David passed away in 2006, Susan Teppola took over the winery. Laurel Ridge has an extensive catalog, including ports, dessert wines and one of Oregon’s few méthode champenoise sparkling wines. This family farm turned winery has something for everyone to enjoy.
Susan Teppola founded Laurel Ridge in 1986 with her husband David Teppola and two other couples. She also served as an Oregon administrative law judge until mid-2013 and raised the Teppolas’ two daughters. Now that she has retired, you can find Susan in the Laurel Ridge tasting room or behind the desk, handling communications and holding the winery to the Teppolas’ high standards for warmth and hospitality.
