Ned oversees day-to-day operations at the winery and work closely with the vineyard team to manage all estate vineyards. Ned’s winemaking philosophy balances old-world tradition with modern science and technology. He believes in creating wines that have long cellar potential, yet are approachable upon release. His combined experience and winemaking style make him a great fit at Canoe Ridge Vineyard.

Our winemaking philosophy is based in the vineyard, where the level and quality of ripeness become the foundation of every new vintage.

Throughout the entire growing season we monitor soil moisture, heat units, pest pressure and plant growth. We balance the crop, green thin and irrigate to allow the vines the proper health to ripen the crop. Ripeness is achieved when balance, flavor maturity and sugar levels converge, making the decision of when to pick by far the most important one we make each year.

Our estate vineyard overlooks the vast Umatilla National Wildlife Refuge, which encompasses 29,370 acres of marshes, sloughs, open water and cropland. This is a popular nesting area for Great Basin Canadian geese, several species of ducks and other marsh and water birds.

Red, White & Drunk all over by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean writes about wine with a sensuous obsession... and often laugh-out-loud funny... Terrific.

Ms. MacLean is the disarming Everywoman. She loves wine, loves drinking ... ultimately, it's a winning formula.

Unquenchable: A Tipsy Search

  Best Books of the Year

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.

Gary Vaynerchuck, Wine Library TV
