  1. "Ma & Pa" Wineries /Boutique/ small producers:

Many, if not most Oregon wineries could be classified as 'Ma & Pa's', that is, family-owned wineries.  But for our listing purposes, we are restricting it to those where the winery owner is also the wine maker & wine pourer, the smallest of the small. 'If we visit a tasting room a couple of times and haven't met the owner or the winemaker yet, we're not likely to include it here'. 'Genuine', smaller, family-owned vineyard location wineries & multi-generational farmers who are literally Ma & Pop & family or otherwise very small producers.  They're usually the farmer, the winemaker and the sole tasting room employee, where typically you can only find their wines at their tasting rooms. It doesn't get any better than that!'  Click on the winery to go to their website. Appt required unless otherwise noted. Click on the winery to go to their website.

  1. 'Top of the Line' Pinots

This category is tricky, as there are so many of them.  Hence, this will be a category in progress...

As a reflection of both demand and confidence, you don't have to look far to find a Willamette Valley pinot noir priced at $100 or more. Those higher prices are justified by the plateaus, potency and persistence that the wines uniformly reach. Some standouts include...

Notable Sparkling Wine Wineries -

Argyle Winery: The largest producer of traditional sparkling wines, Argyle has been crafting bubbly since its first vintage in the 1980s. Argyle, based along the highway in the Willamette Valley town of Dundee, is the quality and quantity leader in Oregon sparkling wine and are known to have produced the world’s highest rated Sparkling Wines outside of Champagne.

Anne Amie Vineyards: This longtime winery (formerly known as Chateau Benoit) is in the Yamhill-Carlton AVA, and it produces a delicious Brut Rosé using estate Pinot Noir.

Apolloni Vineyards: Alfredo Apolloni leads this small family operation near the north Willamette Valley town of Forest Grove, and he focuses on Pinot Gris and Pinot Blanc. He now makes a small amount of sparkling Pinot Blanc that is rich, luscious and shows off the bright fruit typical of western Oregon wines.

Castillo de Feliciana Vineyard & Winery: Dentist-turned-vintner Sam Castillo leads this small, family-owned winery on the Oregon side of the Walla Walla Valley. It focuses on Spanish-style wines, but it also makes a small amount of a superb bubbly called Brillánte, which is made using Pinot Blanc.

Coeur de Terre Vineyard: This small producer in McMinnville is best known for its Pinot Noirs, and in 2011, it produced a tiny amount of sparkling Riesling. It’s a delicious example that emphasizes bright fruit and acidity.

Division Winemaking Co.: Portland vintner Thomas Monroe launched his Crémant de Portland starting with the 2013 vintage, a bottling that includes Chenin Blanc from Willard Farms in Washington’s Yakima Valley, which he’s followed up with his Gamine 2014 Grenache Rosé Petillant.

Domaine Meriwether: This winery west of Eugene has long focused on sparkling wines, and that tradition continues. Raymond Walsh makes the wines for Eric and Lorrie Normann, who latter who helped launch Sweet Cheeks Winery.

Edgefield Winery: Edgefield, owned by McMenamins, is in Troutdale at the entrance of the Columbia Gorge. Among its many offerings is a Blanc de Noirs made from Pinot Noir

Kramer Vineyards: Second-generation winemaker Kim Kramer has taken over cellar duties for this longtime producer in northern Yamhill County, and she is starting to focus on making some of the best sparkling wines in the Pacific Northwest. She makes four bubbles: Müller-Thurgau, Pinot Gris, Brut and Rosé of Pinot Noir.

Lundeen Wines: After working for a few other wineries in the Willamette Valley, Michael Lundeen decided in 2005 to launch his own winery in McMinnville. He produces a small amount of vineyard-designated sparkling wine using Pinot Noir, and it is a beauty.

Maysara Winery: Based in the McMinnville AVA, this beautiful winery crafts a sparkling rosé made from estate Pinot Noir.

Mellen Meyer Winery: This small producer in Portland is just getting started up and will be focusing on crafting small lots of sparkling wine.

Ponzi Vineyards: Second-generation winemaker Luisa Ponzi crafted her Cin Cin Brut Rosé from Pinot Noir grapes. Just for fun (and for the kids in the Ponzi family), she also makes a sparkling grape juice from Gewürztraminer called Cugini.

Rallison Cellars: Parrett Mountain winemaker Jared Rallison offers three sparkling wines, with a focus on single-vineyard bottlings with varieties native to Burgundy.

Raptor Ridge Winery: Owner/winemaker Scott Shull crafts a small amount of vineyard-designated sparkling Pinot Noir rosé at his winery near Newberg. The inaugural vintage was from 2011.

St. Josef’s: This longtime winery (more than 30 years old) in Canby makes three different sparklers: Chardonnay, Riesling and Syrah. They are made in the off-dry, semi-sparkling Prosecco style.

Season Cellars: One of the more famous names in Oregon wine is Scott Henry of Henry Estate in the Umpqua Valley. Scott Henry IV owns this small winery and has produced a delicious off-dry semi-sparkling wine called Transparency that uses such grapes as Müller-Thurgau, Early Muscat and Riesling.

Sokol Blosser: The second generation has taken over this longtime Dundee Hills producer. It makes two sparkling wines. One is a rosé using Pinot Noir, and one is a white sparkling brut under its wildly popular Evolution series.

Soter Vineyards: Longtime West Coast winemaker Tony Soter has made a Pinot Noir from estate Mineral Springs Vineyard Pinot Noir for several years, and it’s always among the finest made in Oregon.

R. Stuart and Co.: Rob Stuart, who has worked at wineries on both sides of the Columbia River, launched his eponymous brand in McMinnville. He produces two sparkling wines: a dry Chardonnay and a rosé.
