Red Lily Vineyards
Red Lily Vineyards
Red Lily is a terroir driven, small cuvee winery whose underlying philosophy is to create wines that have a sense of place. To put it simply, we strive to produce the highest quality wines possible that reflect the unique parcels of land on which the vines are planted. Our wines are created by an uncompromising and passionate focus on quality and attention to detail in all aspects of the wine making process. Great wines are created in the vineyard and this is where our winemaking starts. We also offer a small menu of fresh food items because we feel it enhances the wine experience. However, we are not a restaurant and we have a small kitchen and can get easily overwhelmed with large orders of food.
Located in the heart of Jacksonville, Oregon.
- Red Lily Vineyards is committed to a single goal - producing the finest tempranillo wine possible.

Practices & Techniques
Estate Vineyards / AVA
The vineyard was initially planted with two acres of tempranillo (Clone 1 and Duero) in 2004 and we had our first estate harvest in Fall 2006. The vineyard site has a predominantly western aspect on a 12% average slope that rises to an elevation of 1630 feet. This slope, combined with a predominantly Ruch gravelly silt loam soil composition, affords good drainage and makes for an excellent vineyard site. The vineyard name comes simply from the fact it is located on Thompson Creek and was our very first vineyard.
Bean Patch Vineyard
The vineyard was initially planted with four acres of tempranillo (Clone 1 and Duero) in 2008. We are expecting our first estate harvest in 2012. The vineyard site has a predominantly northern aspect that rises to an elevation of approximately 1600 feet. The site is comprised of primarily manita loam, with some vannoy silt loam. Manita loam is a deep, well-drained soil on alluvial fans that typically contains clay loam along with some gravelly. The name of this vineyard stems from the fact that the initial owners of the property (who homesteaded the property in the late 1800s), used to grow bush beans in this particular area.
In 2011, we planted our newest vineyard. Comprising approximately 14 acres, the vineyard was planted with Tempranillo (Clone 1, Clone 5, Clone 11 and Clone 12), Verdejo (Clone 1), Grenache (Clone 1A and Clone 3), and Graciano (Clone 1). We are expecting our first estate harvest in 2013. The vineyard site has a predominantly northern aspect on a varying slope surrounding a knoll, and sits at an average elevation of 1500 feet. The soil is virtually identical to that of the Bean Patch Vineyard. The name of this vineyard stems from the fact that the elevated knoll in the center of the vineyard provides an incredible view of the night sky, thus a perfect place for stargazing!
