About MonksGate Vineyard

Garnering our name from the gate erected to allow monks from the nearby Trappist Abbey to continue their journeys across our land, we are a limited production Estate vineyard located in the much-famed Yamhill-Carlton AVA. Family owned and operated since 1998, our hillside vineyard is planted to premium Pinot noir and Riesling. With a family history rooted in agriculture, we act as dedicated stewards of the land. The vineyard site ranges in elevation from 260 to 440 feet on predominantly south to southwest slopes. The soil type is primarily Willakenzie, a silty clay loam over siltstone. The vineyard is not irrigated and is farmed sustainably to ensure that it will be environmentally and economically viable for generations to come. With ideal soils, slope, aspect, warm sunny days and cool nights, our vineyard is able to produce wines with a true sense of place. We hope you will join us and experience the beauty of our vineyard, and the exceptional quality of our wines. Cheers!
