Cooper Mountain Vineyards rests on the slopes of an ancient volcano. Over thousands of years, erosion helped create the terrain, soils and characteristics that make our wines unique. Our vineyards sit on land once farmed by Oregon pioneers who took to the unique location despite its challenges and lack of water. Cooper Mountain has a rich heritage. We are proud to be part of its story.

Cooper Mountain Vineyards got its start in 1978 when Dr. Robert Gross and his wife, Corrine, planted the first Pinot Noir and Chardonnay vines. The two of them tended the vines and carefully nurtured them as they established in the unique soils of Cooper Mountain.

The vines were well tended and matured gracefully to produce true Oregon Pinots. At first, the fruit was sold to other wineries and crafted into wine by some of Oregon's finest winemakers. In 1987, the winery opened to offer its first vintage to the public and began a quest that has brought us to more than 100 acres, four varietals, a commitment to affordable Oregon wines, and an expanded tasting room for our visitors.

1978 Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Pinot Gris vines were hand planted by Dr. Robert Gross, wife Corrine and family friends.

1982 Dr. Gross and family plant "Meadowlark" vineyard located on the south side of Cooper Mountain.

1985 The Grosses consult with winemaker Rich Cushman on starting a winery. Cushman advises on setting up a small winery and agrees to oversee winemaking.

1987 Cooper Mountain Vineyards releases its first vintage.

1990 Dr. Gross seeks alternative farming methods that match his interest in homeopathic medicine and decides to take the vineyards organic. His interest in alternative farming leads him to Biodynamic® agriculture. Once learning of its practical applications, he decides to take a dual track toward Biodynamic® certification.

1995 Vineyards attain organic certification: Certified by Oregon Tilth.

1999 Vineyards attain Biodynamic® certification: Certified by Demeter.

2002 Winery is certified organic for operations and processing: Certified by Oregon Tilth.

2002 Cooper Mountain Vineyards becomes first U.S. winery to gain label approval for a no-sulfite-added wine under the new National Organic Program standards. Label approval process proves difficult, but “Made with 100% Organic & Biodynamic® Grapes” statement approved for use on label.

2004 Gilles De Domingo becomes Cooper Mountain Vineyards’ new winemaker, making him the first full-time winemaker.
