Social distancing is over for now but we still have a long way to go to recover financially from the 15 month clusterf*@k that defined the COVID era. While sales are rapidly improving, we
still have multiple vintages of wine in barrel, and that wine paradoxically is not a liquid asset. We are trying to get a little cushion back in our bank account so if you purchase any 12 bottle
combo we will give you an extra 10% off for a total discount of 20%!

Starting with our first vintage in 2004, our mission has been simple-make wines that we want to drink, and make them reflective of our passion: crafting special occasion wines you can drink everyday. And the only way to make exceptional wine is to start with exceptional grapes.
Grapevines, like people, wear their emotions on their sleeves. Varietal expression is maximized when grapes are grown in climates that most closely resemble their native habitat.
As vintners, we believe that our job is to use subtle winemaking techniques to make sure that this varietal character stays true throughout the fermentation and aging process. Click here for more info on varietal character.
Our tasting room is located in downtown Pacific City, a quaint little drinking town with a fishing problem. We are a small, family owned négociant style winery. We believe the best wines are made by selecting vineyards in climates similar to each grapes genetic history. We make all of our own wine in nearby McMinnville, Oregon and serve them here at the beach, along with a smattering of some exciting beer.
We fell in love with wine in the early 90's and moved to the Napa Valley-Chenin in 1992 and Sean in 1994. There we worked for some of the best wineries in the Valley as we learned the art of making wine: Domaine Chandon, Groth Vineyard and Winery, and Pine Ridge Winery. We followed this passion to Oregon in 2001 and learned the Oregon way at Archery Summit Winery, Lange Estate Winery, and Cristom Vineyards. In the last 20 plus years we've learned to make what we like, and we hope you like what we make!
Our eclectic mix of wine, relaxation, suds and experience will set you on your path to wine appreciation without all the pomp and circumstance. Whether you want to geek out on winemaking or just enjoy a glass of wine, we hope you visit us for that much deserved relaxation we all need so much!
