The vineyards of Cardwell Hill Cellars are located on a south-facing slope in the western portion of the Willamette Valley – a region fast gaining worldwide acclaim for the production of premium wines.

Less than a half-hour’s drive west of Corvallis, breathtaking scenery and open roadways offer visitors an idyllic opportunity to enjoy a very special glimpse into the world of winemaking and fine wines. Here, in Benton County, amid the foothills of Mary’s Peak, the tallest mountain in Oregon’s renowned Coast Range, a cadre of a dozen-plus vineyards and wineries is taking advantage of some of the valley’s most favorable growing conditions.

Along the southernmost slope of Cardwell Hill, the vineyard encompasses a total of 57 acres. Thirty six acres are now planted with Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris Vines. Ninety percent of the plantings are Pinot Noir.

The region’s rainfall, which approaches an average of 40 inches per year, creates a natural supply of water that seeps deep into the ground at the higher elevations and then slowly percolates down the slopes throughout the summer months. Taking advantage of this natural flow of subterranean moisture, Cardwell Hill Cellars utilizes a “dry farming” approach.

Meticulous care is taken to adhere to environment friendly practices and to utilize sustainable agricultural techniques in every aspect of the cultivation of quality wine grapes. With great pride, owner Dan Chapel proclaims, “only the juice of the grape is removed from the vineyard – all of the rest is recycled back into the land.”

Cardwell Hill has been certified both “Salmon Safe” and “LIVE”. Vineyard practices meet or exceed the rigorous standards set forth by this grower organization.
