Before relocating to Ohio, the partners owned Chehalem Valley Vineyards, 40 acres, in Yamhill Oregon, which was sold to Tony Soter (Etude). We researched Walla Walla, the Finger Lakes, Paso Robles and southern Oregon before settling on southern Ohio and our vineyard site with soil similar to St. Emilion, south east facing slope in a historic viticultural area.

Ron is willing to mentor a new buyer for a year or two, and we have a 2013 bottled white wine and 2012 bottled red wine available at half retail to the purchaser. A smaller harvest for 2013 reds, which will be released in 2015 after barrel aging.

Ron sold his vineyard in Oregon to Tony Soter. A unique opportunity to purchase an internationally-recognized vineyard.

"The qualities that make for a happy and genial life... are these: a small estate with fruitful vineyards, a fire to curtail the rigours of winter, freedom from lawn troubles, a contented mind, a man's strength and healthy body, frankness tempered by tact, congenial associates, happy guests, a table spread with simple viands, wine not in excess but enough to drive away care, an unprudish wife, yet virtuous withall; sound sleep to make dark hours fly, no longing for change, just contentment with what you are, no fear of death, nor yet a desire for it."

Martial, Roman poet, The Epigrams
