Knudsen Vineyards is a 50-year- old vineyard located in the North Willamette Valle’s Dundee Hills AVA. Knudsen Vineyards is known as one of the earliest established vineyards of the Willamette Valley, founded by Page’s parents Cal and Julia Lee Knudsen.
While the Knudsen Vineyards wine label represents a return to winemaking under the family label (2014), “Knudsen Erath Winery”; was founded as the first commercial winery in the Dundee Hills Ava in 1975 in partnership with Dick Erath, another Oregon wine pioneer.
Knudsen Vineyards has also long been a premium supplier of the highest quality fruit to the award-winning Argyle Winery since 1987.
Our goal is to produce exceptional quality, distinctive Pinot Noir and Chardonnay wines. The formula is straight-forward. We care for our land and vines by practicing sustainable viticulture. We cultivate to optimize fruit quality through diversity in vine age, clonal breadth, exposure and elevation. Our grapes possess a richness of flavor and complexity unique to our vines, Jory soil and location. Our winemaking is designed to capture this singularity and present elegant wines expressive of this terroir.
Please join us on our grape growing and winemaking journey and enjoy our wines for their pure expression of our land, fruit and family.
