MarshAnne Landing

About

Welcome to MarshAnne Landing, a small family-run winery and vineyard. Our goal is to produce food-friendly "out of this world" wines from grapes traditionally grown in the Rhone and Bordeaux regions of France. Syrah, Grenache, Viognier, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Cabernet Franc (along with a few other interesting varietals) have all been given a home in our beautiful vineyard located at the site of a former stagecoach stop in the rolling hills north of Roseburg, Oregon. MarshAnne Landing provides an elegant and comfortable setting for tasting wine. One of a kind art work from over 20 local artists surrounds the tasting room and fills the fireplace alcove with a serene sense of beauty. Large windows and doors leading to our deck provide inviting views of the vineyard and the valley beyond. The entire space has a “WOW” aspect that offers visitors a friendly country setting for tasting wine, finding a special gift, and making new friends. Musical entertainment that is “out of this world” has found a home in our Gallery as well as on our deck. Winter months provide an opportunity to drink wine and consume scrumptious appetizers while listening to opera, chamber ensembles and jazz. Summer months on our deck provide an opportunity to watch the setting sun across the valley, drink in the evening air, and enjoy more “out of this world” music. Check our calendar for upcoming events.

History

Our venture began in 1996 with the purchase of a cattle ranch in the Umpqua Valley, a region similar to the Rhone Valley, lying just to the south of Oregon’s Burgundy, the Willamette Valley. In the spring of 1999 12,000 grafted vines representing 10 varieties of grapes were delivered to our “planting party”, 17 friends who came from across the country to help us launch our dreams. After just 4 days, lots of beer and wine, extensive time in the hot tub, our crew had planted 14 miles of vineyard rows! We were all left with a great appreciation of our friendship and a big clue about the underappreciated effort it takes to produce wine. And that was just the beginning of that lesson.

Practices & Techniques

Great winemaking starts in the vineyard. All of the grapes used for winemaking at MarshAnne Landing come from our dry farmed estate vineyard. Warm days, cool nights, shallow soils, a well-managed vertical shoot positioned (VSP) canopy, and limited yields all contribute to the "out of this world" character of MarshAnne Landing wines. The remarkable climate and terrain found in the Umpqua Valley make this area especially well suited for producing world-class wines.

MarshAnne Vineyard currently has seventeen acres of grapes under cultivation. Most of the vineyard was planted on grafted rootstock in 1999. Drip irrigation was used to establish the vineyard. The vineyard has been farmed without irrigation since 2002. Clean cultivation during the growing season has made the vineyard stronger and relatively drought tolerant.

Estate Vineyards / AVA

The site for MarshAnne Vineyard and MarshAnne Landing was found on their first trip to the Umpqua, a 109-acre site located 4 miles north of Oakland, Oregon. The Cramers quickly mapped out a 4-year time line for establishing their vineyard, building a home, “retirement”, and moving 3000 miles across the country to a place they never lived before. The vineyard concept focused on producing wine blends from related grapes. A 20-acre parcel being set aside for the vineyard, ground preparation and vineyard infrastructure including deer fencing, trellising and drip irrigation took place late in 1998 and early 1999. Planting of the initial 14-acre block with over 12,000 grafted vines occurred over 4 days in mid-April 1999. The Cramer's “planting party”, brought together 17 wine loving friends from across the country to help launch MarshAnne Vineyard . The planting of 14 miles of vineyard rows left everyone with a new appreciation of friendship and a big clue about the unrecognized effort it takes to produce wine.
