Methven Family Wines

Thursday, November 11th, 2010

Allen and Jill Methven’s family spans the United States with ties in Michigan, Texas, California, New York, Washington, Hawaii and Alaska but their heart exists in the Willamette Valley of Oregon. It is here, near their home in the Eola Hills, that they have planted vineyards dedicated to the grapes that have made this area famous…Riesling, Pinot Gris and Pinot Noir. From these meticulously tended vines, some of Oregon’s finest wines are being crafted in extremely small lots, each hand selected for quality.

Methven Family Wines is famous for boutique wines including Riesling, Pinot Gris, Chardonnay, Gamay Noir and Pinot Noir. Our 2008 Estate Cuvee Pinot Noir was a Gold Winner at the 2012 Oregon Wine Awards.

Dobbes Family Estate

Thursday, November 11th, 2010

Owner and winemaker Joe Dobbes believes that superb wine depends on the fruit from which it is produced. Therefore, Joe sources fruit from only the best of what Nature has to offer. Careful selection of grape clones from unique vineyards, with a focus on soil composition, site elevation and specific vineyard blocks, is an example to Joe’s fine attention to detail.

Dobbes Family Estate Tasting Room

The Dobbes Family Estate offers wine tasting daily from 11am-6pm, but encourages you to contact Charles Hesson, their Tasting Room manager, for complimentary concierge services for restaurant reservations, accommodation assistance, winery tours and tasting scheduling, and arrangements for other attractions and activities.

dobbes family estate oregon winery

At Dobbes, we are passionate about letting the grapes speak. We aren’t in the business of bending nature to our will — that never turns out well. Our job is to bring forth the flavors, the textures, the colors and aromas that the fruit is eager to share with us. And in Oregon, we are blessed with some of the best fruit in the world.

Nature. From early spring until harvest, winemaker Joe Dobbes scrutinizes the vines, selecting the best sites and clones, as well as crop loads. His sole objective is to produce wines true to their varietal character with as much depth, elegance, opulence and balance of flavor possible.

In addition to our own vineyard, we have relationships with some of the best winegrowers in Oregon’s Willamette and Rogue valleys. Dobbes understands the important role terroir plays in the character development of wine, so he carefully selects all of our fruit from vineyards with differing elevations, soil types and clones. The ingredients, after all, are the most important factor in producing the most expressive Pinot Noirs.

Nurture. At harvest and crush, the fruit is fermented and barrel aged separately — essentially producing 23 single-vineyard Pinot Noirs, which Dobbes and his trusted team evaluate individually. Each Pinot Noir lot is then designated for our exquisite cuvées and single-vineyard offerings.

Artistry. Experience and passion come together in the craftsmanship of our superlative Pinot Noirs. Our single-vineyard designate Pinot Noirs are an expression of each vineyard’s unique terroir and a sensory journey for the palate. At the heart of the Joe Dobbes Collection are distinct cuvées which showcase our winemaking talents while staying true to vintage and varietal character.

Rex Hill Vineyards

Wednesday, November 10th, 2010

Rex Hill Winery, founded in 1982 by Paul Hart and Jan Jacobsen, was built around an old fruit and nut drying facility and opened in 1985. The original vineyard around the winery is now exclusively Pinot Noir grapes, except for one row of Muscat left for the sweet delight of harvest visitors. In 2007, A to Z Wineworks (the William Hatcher Family, the Francis Tannahills, and a few partners including San Antonio Spurs coach Gregg Popovich) purchased Rex Hill Vineyards and Winery, bringing fresh enthusiasm and energy to the properties and strengthening both brands. A commitment to excellence is evident in their Biodynamic farming and sustainable business practices. The two families also brought wine education to REX HILL which now offers classes and seminars to professionals and the public.

domaine serene oregon winery


2008 Evenstad Reserve® Pinot Noir

“Dark, full, generous and ripe to the far edge of elegance, this powerful Pinot is saturated with black fruits, annotated with fennel, pepper, smoke and espresso, the rich and varied flavors rolling right through a lush midpalate and on into a gently fading finish. Retasted over 24–48 hours, it continued to evolve and develop additional nuances. A wine to cellar for a decade or more.”

2010 Evenstad Reserve® Chardonnay

“Fresh and expressive, this is vibrant with pear, pineapple and grapefruit flavors that get a lift from a deft balance of acidity. Shows richness and refinement. Drink now through 2016.—H.S .”
