First Pinot Noir vinesVip_Wine_images_4_2_15

Did you know that this weekend, the Willamette Valley‬ is celebrating 50 years since the first Pinot noir vines were planted in our region?  We are so excited to be a part of this history! Check out the awesome ‪#‎TBT‬ pic we have of Hyland Vineyard and the original people who planted it!

Fifty years ago, David Lett planted Pinot noir where nobody thought it would grow. Since those first vines were planted in Oregon’s Willamette Valley in 1965, we’ve grown from a few brave families and their dreams to a world-renowned wine region in just half a century. Here’s to the next 50 years!
