This remarkable, secluded 40 acre estate is one of the hidden jewels of Oregon—and in close proximity to both Portland and McMinnville (an acclaimed hub for the food and wine industries). Approaching from the tree-lined, gated driveway you’ll take in the immediate tranquility and peace of the location; the trees, the ponds, the gentle landscape. Just a few moments afterward you’ll realize… you’re home. This stunning 2,690 square foot custom-designed home features amazing wrap-around porches on both levels, where you can enjoy wonderful views of the countryside. Inside, you’ll be greeted by bright, open space and warm wooden floors—a refined, welcoming feeling of livable elegance that reverberates throughout the house. The residence has been customized with amazing woodwork, elegant high-end finishes and has been meticulously maintained. An open-concept kitchen promises an easy family breakfast routine as well as robust entertainment opportunities—the ultimate in country estate living. Outside, you’ll find an enormous 22 stall barn complete with office space and a truly impressive arena that’s more than perfect for any equestrian ambitions your family has or might already have. With approximately 20 plantable acres you could apply for a winery permit. The adjacent lot presents a unique opportunity to acquire approximately 30 additional plantable acres, with which you could establish a premier Oregon vineyard site. Of course, the possibilities are endless. A property like this could easily become an outstanding destination vineyard—using the main house as a tasting room and even providing horse rides around the property. Or maybe a B&B? You could build a new home on the adjacent lot—also gorgeous and with astonishing views of Mount Hood and Mount St. Helens— and let guests enjoy those wrap-around porches and a private, luxurious country escape all to themselves. All you have to do is take in the view. There’s room and opportunity here for practically any size dream.

VINEYARD SITE ANALYSIS performed by — results partners vineyard development & management
GROSS PLANTABLE VINEYARD ACRES: Tax Lot 300 (29.0 acres), Tax Lot 301 (20.0 acres), Combined (51.75 acres). Note that a thirty-foot set back has been accounted for around the perimeter of all vineyard areas as required access. NET PLANTABLE VINEYARD ACRES: Dependent upon vineyard layout, avenue width and degree of maximization. Typically 80-90% of gross plantable vineyard acres. AVA (AMERICAN VITICULTURAL AREA): Yamhill-Carlton VINEYARD SOIL TYPES PRESENT (NRCS SOIL SURVEY): Primarily Windygap, Jory, GoodinSaum and Dupee. All of which are highly regarded vineyards soils which support dry-farming. Please refer to the soil report created for this property by Red Hills Soil. SLOPE/ASPECT: There are a variety of sun exposure aspects to take advantage of on this property ranging from west to southwest and west to slightly north facing. DRAINAGE: The soils on this property are noted for having good to very good natural drainage characteristics. However, sub-surface drainage will likely need to be installed in the natural drainage ways and swales in order to realize the plantable acreage outlined. ELEVATION: 630’ to 900’ above sea level appears to be the elevation range for these particular parcels. The bottom of the natural drainageway on the western property line represents the low elevation mark while the top of the property near the location of the small green shed represents the upper reaches. This lies within the acceptable range for ripening cool climate wine grapes in the Willamette Valley. MICROCLIMATE: The property is located near other proven vineyard operations, which bodes well for the site’s potential for producing high quality wine grapes. Although specific weather data for this site is not available, it is reasonable to assume that this site will have the potential to adequately ripen cool climate grape varieties such as Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Pinot Gris or similar, under proper management. It is recommended that either a weather station or temperature recording thermometers be used in the lower reaches of the property to record temperatures mainly between the months of April 1st and October 31st to determine if freezing temperatures are realized during the growing season. “FARMABILITY”: Although much of the ground has gentle rolling slopes, some areas are quite steep and will require the use of a crawler-type tractor to farm the future vineyard. IRRIGATION: Although drip irrigation can help reduce variability in a vineyard’s establishment period, can help reduce vine stress in drought years and serve as an alternative means for applying fertilizer to vines; drip irrigation will likely not be a requirement for vine establishment. SUMMARY: These are two very nice parcels of vineyard land. A good portion of the land has been cleared and is well on its way to being ready for vineyard ground preparation. The steeper slopes may not be as efficient to farm as those on the lower sections, but do offer very nice aspects for late season ripening. Higher elevations (>800’) are becoming more popular with winemakers seeking higher acids, lower sugars and terroir driven flavors achieved with longer growing seasons.
