Mahonia Vineyard

One of the earliest practitioners of sustainable farming and growing in the Willamette Valley, Mahonia Vineyard believes that what is good for the earth is also good for great wine. We couldn’t agree more. Their definition of profit includes actively supporting various community programs, particularly those benefitting children and the environment. To make the most of their 12-acre plot, Mahonia is trellised and uses a cordon training system that allows for optimum production and fruit quality. The vineyard team proactively thins the vines to balance yields and aim for crop levels in the 2.0-2.5 tons per acre range. Since its inception, the vineyard has been farmed using sustainable methods to control weeds and pests. Mahonia Vineyard is LIVE Certified, Salmon Safe, and meets the Carbon Neutral Challenge (CRC).
