Producers of internationally recognized, award-winning, ultra-premium vinifera wines. Featured in international wine reference book Opus Vino; and 1000 Great Everyday Wines from the World's Best Wineries; and twice made Tom Stevenson's list of the 100 Most Exciting Wine Finds in the World (British Editor of the Wine Report paperback).

Before relocating to Ohio, the partners owned Chehalem Valley Vineyards, 40 acres, in Yamhill Oregon, which was sold to Tony Soter (Etude). Established vineyard ground in Oregon is now $100,000 an acre, which makes our vineyard a real bargain. 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.

Why are we selling: retiring to North Carolina. We grew Pinot Noir in Oregon in Yamhill, Chehalem Valley Vineyards, for 10 years. Those grapes were sold mostly to Erath.

"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
