About Winter’s Hill

Winter’s Hill Estate has been in the family since 1961, when Emily Gladhart’s parents, John and Lena Winter, purchased a fruit and grain farm on a corner of Oregon’s Dundee Hills. Peter & Emily and their son Russell planted the first 19 acres of grapes in 1990, 12 acres of Pinot Noir and 7 acres of Pinot Gris. The vineyard’s elevation of 525 to 730 feet on south facing slopes provides optimum warmth during summer days while exposing it to cool ocean breezes every afternoon that drop evening temperatures into the 50’s. These conditions bring the slow, gentle ripening so essential to the delicate character of fine Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris.

We invite you to join us in the winery for a flight of wine so you can see, smell, and understand how we make our wine, or bring a picnic and enjoy your wine outside while taking in the sweeping panoramic views of the Coastal Mountains.
