1789 Wines

This is winemaker Isabelle Dutartre’s own label. Dutartre, a native of France,  notes that 1789 was a time of revolution in France and 1789 wines reflect her own personal revolution when she moved her three children from the south of France to Oregon wine country. She has made wine for over 28 years, beginning in Oregon in 1993 when she commuted back and forth between Oregon and France. She currently is the winemaker for De Ponte Cellars in the Dundee Hills where she as been the winemaker since their first vintage in 2001.

Brigadoon Wine Company

Nestled against the coastal foothills of the southern Willamette Valley, just northwest of Eugene, Brigadoon Vineyards represents a multi-generational commitment to sustainable agriculture. From soil preparation to planting and harvest, each family member takes an active part in the growth and development of the farm, whose vineyard is complimented by timber, Christmas and fruit trees, and a seasonal herd of sheep.

Brigadoon is committed to growing grapes and producing wines that accurately portray the variety, the vineyard and the vintage.


Brittan Vineyards

With more than 40 years of experience growing grapes and making wine, Robert Brittan brings a significant amount of viticultural and winemaking knowledge to Brittan Vineyards. He has always had a passion for Pinot Noir, and hopes that with the fruit from the Brittan estate vineyard in the foothills of the Coastal Range, he can bring a new voice to the McMinnville AVA, and help form the style and definition of Pinot Noir from this recently designated winegrowing region.


Dion Vineyards

For over 30 years, three generations of the Johnson family have been stewards to the land and terroir that is Dion Vineyard. Located in the Northern Willamette Valley, the vineyard is 60 acres of southerly slopes. The vines, some over 30 years old, are rooted in Laurelwood soils at elevations from 300 to 500 feet.

In the grapes and the wine the Johnsons strive to achieve a sense of terroir — a sense of the people and the place that are home to these vines.



Created by the Ransom Wine Company whose intent is to create artisan crafted wines that exemplify true varietal character and express the individuality of the growers, vineyard sites, and vintages.

Their belief is that wine is best made by hand with minimal intervention. Winemaking decisions are mainly based on taste, instinct, the will of the grapes, and a bit of common sense.


Machine Breaker

The Machine Breaker label was conceived of as an homage to farmers with in the Eola-Amity Hills, to their ungrafted Pinot Noir vines and to their ultimately doomed plight. After years of working with the produce from three of the region’s old-timers, winemaker Tad Seestadt realized that consistently these older vines were producing the best, most complex and interestingly flavored fruit year after year.


Mad Violets Wine Co.

Mad Violets creates delicate, complex, age-worthy wines, consistent in style while allowing the expression of both the terroir and the individual growing season. In the cool climate Willamette Valley, each vintage is different so Mad Violets strives to showcase what Mother Nature has bestowed by expressing the unique attributes of the year. They farm sustainably and use a minimalist approach in the winery to create delicate, pure, and food friendly wines.



Ransom wines exemplify true varietal character and express the individuality of their growers, vineyards, and vintages.  Choosing vineyards with a commitment to quality and sustainability is always their first step, but they must look for a pure expression of terroir, unique flavors, and a fellow iconoclast aboard the tractor. Ransom seeks out old vine, high elevation sites, many in the Eola Hills, which have the innate nerve and balanced acidity to make evocative, food-friendly wines naturally.


Tractor & Vine

This Dundee Hills, single-vineyard wine showcases the beauty of Oregon and small-production Pinot Noir.  Tractor & Vine fruit comes Jody and Michelle Kropf’s ysmall, two acre jory soil vineyard aptly named as Kropf Family Vineyard. This wine was produced by two well aged friends and neighbors;  Jesse Lange and Jody Kropf.
