A combination of determination and extraordinary people has brought Willamette Valley Vineyards from an idea to one of the region's leading wineries, earning the title "One of America's Great Pinot Noir Producers," from Wine Enthusiast Magazine. Founder, Jim Bernau, purchased the Estate site in 1983 and planted Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, and Pinot Gris. In the beginning he hand watered the vines with seventeen lengths of 75' garden hose. Jim's vision of organizing the support of wine enthusiasts to grow world-class wines through shared ownership has resulted in over 9,000 owners. The winery now sources all of its barrel-aged Pinot Noir from its estate-grown vineyards and meticulously farms sustainably through LIVE certification standards.
