From around 1900 until the 1960's, the Red Hills of Dundee were covered in prune orchards.

The Maresh family farm, with 27 acres, began in 1959,and at one point spanned 200 acres across the Red Hills, well before grapes were planted in the Willamette Valley. The family orchards included prunes, walnuts, cherries, and filberts.

The ten acres that are now Baptista Maresh Vineyard were planted in filberts in the '50's. Baptista Maresh Vineyard co-owner Dave Maresh helped farm it as a boy, and was always attracted to its slope and views.

The first block of the family's Maresh Red Hills Vineyard was planted in 1969, which today encompasses about 50 acres of 100 acres still held. It is the fifth-oldest vineyard in the state, and the first on Worden Hill Road, considered by many to be the best viticulture region in the Oregon wine industry.

Dave bought the ten acres from his dad in 1986 for a future vineyard and home site. Three years after the purchase, Suzanne Baptista and Dave got married, and share the dream of a beautiful home in a world-class vineyard.

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.
