About Anderson Family Vineyard

Great vineyards have great drainage. Burgundy’s Côte d’Or has Kimmeridgian limestone. Chateauneuf-du-Pape has rounded cobbles or “galets”. Bordeaux’s finest wines are from graveled riversides or “graves”. Deep drainage and exceptional grapes are created from vines with dry feet.
 
In the 1980’s Cliff and Allison Anderson spent years searching for the perfect Oregon vineyard site; a property with rocky drainage where deeply rooted vines produce intensely delicious wines. Our search ended when we found a steep massif of broken stones in the heart of Oregon’s Dundee Hills; an ancient landslide of basalt scree 500 feet deep: Truly dry feet.
 
During the Spring of 1992, Oregon wine pioneer Jack Meyers helped chisel out our vineyard. Today, we hand farm our hill, naturally growing vines on steep, rocky slopes.Our Anderson Family cuvees are crafted in small lots with native yeasts and moved gently by gravity. Each vintage ages slowly in our cool, dark cave–the resulting wines smack of spice and lengthy layers of flavor – timeless vins de garde.
