• Coeur de Terre Vineyard

    Scott and Lisa Neal established this winery in 1998, planting each grapevine by hand on a small, three-acre plot. Their acreage at the foot of the Coast Range has expanded significantly since then, but their workforce has not. The couple proudly grafts, grows, plants, tends and harvests fruit together, then cooperatively turns grape juice into quintessential Oregon Pinot Noir. The “Heart of the Earth” varietals are mainly Pinots, but some Rieslings and rosés are available as well. Visitors can meet members of the Neal family and taste a glass of their single-mindedness from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day in the tasting room.

  • Coleman Vineyard

    Randy and Kim Coleman are another pair of winemakers dedicated to producing top-quality Oregon wines while also using sustainable practices in the growing and farming process. They tout the benefits of cover crops, composting and in-row cultivation in extending the life of the vines and the soil in their blocks, which abut the Van Duzer Corridor through the Coast Range. Coleman Vineyard Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris, Chardonnay, and Syrah all bear the terroir of the area’s silty clay loam over fractured volcanic basalt. Samples can be had at the vineyard from noon to 5 p.m. Friday through Sunday each week and by appointment other times.
