Ayres Vineyard & Winery is located in Oregon’s North Willamette Valley; it is part of the newly designated AVA named Ribbon Ridge. AYRES Vineyard & Winery was established in 2000 when the property was purchased by partners & family members, Brad & Kathleen McLeroy and Don & Carol McClure.

THE VINEYARD includes 10 acres planted to Pinot Noir Dijon clones 667 (3 acres), 115 (3 acres), and 777 (4 acres) all situated on a gently eastern sloping hill; Willakenzie soils predominate the vineyard. One acre of Pommard and one acre of Dijon clone 113 will be planted Spring 2006 and our small experimental plot of Pinot Blanc, Sauvignon Blanc, and Pinot d’Auxerrois will be harvested in Fall 2006. We are committed to sustainable growing practices; our health, the earth’s health, and the health of the plant are our top priorities. We limit each plant to less than two pounds of fruit and it shows…our clusters are beautiful.

WINEMAKER Brad McLeroy honed his winemaking skills at the famed Domaine Drouhin Oregon under the direction of Veronique Drouhin. His full-time position at AYRES completes his circle of wine experience from retailer to distributor to producer. According to McLeroy, “My wines will always have a soul.” Open a bottle and it shows… We believe our wine gives voice to the soil. We believe that our wine guides us as much as we guide our wine. It’s about reciprocity. It’s a relationship that begins in the vineyard, from the first sign of bud break to the last cluster harvested. We have the luxury of growing the grapes, making the wine on-site, and living in the company of the vines. We love what we do here at AYRES.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty 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.
