Beginnings in the Willamette Valley

Daniel Klieman at Lonesome Rock


The short clip below is from our first visit to Lonesome Rock back in October 2020. If you turn up the volume, you can hear the birds feasting on the gorgeous grapes that were all left unharvested due to smoke taint from the worst fires the Willamette Valley had ever experienced. It was humbling, to say the least, to see an entire year's worth of painstaking work evaporate in front of our eyes… a stark reminder of the risk involved if we were to purchase this property and pursue our dream of the past 30 years to cultivate our own Oregon Pinot Noir vineyard.
