What started as Mark Eastburn’s dream of owning a prime vineyard in his native Oregon to produce outstanding wines became a reality on a crisp morning in the early days of the new millennium. Over lunch with a longtime colleague in the mortgage business, he learned of a remarkable property newly listed on the highest slopes of Parrett Mountain. Owned by an absentee German family for over 50 years, the south-east facing wheat field, a mere 30 minutes from downtown Portland, had the perfect potential for his vineyard.

Sensing that his dream might finally become reality, Mark drove directly to the site, stepped out of the car in his suit and tie, and sank his wingtips into the cool, volcanic Jory soil.

Within the hour, he had contacted his friend Buddy Beck, one of Oregon’s foremost vineyard specialists, to determine whether the property was indeed all he hoped.


Buddy enthusiastically approved, the vineyard was planted and Mark never looked back.

Over the years, family and friends often join Mark in the vineyard to tend the vines, always celebrating with the fruits of their labor…

Great wines owe their origins to excellent grapes which is why vineyard management is critical to quality winemaking. Buddy Beck and his team at Advanced Vineyard Systems share Mark’s commitment to healthy vines from the roots up and oversee every stage of the vineyard’s calendar. His degrees in soil science and agriculture applied over 20 years of planting and nurturing Oregon’s top vineyards makes him the perfect steward for the vineyard. Plus he’s a straight talking Texan with a passion for Pinot Noir and tells a great fishing story!


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Premium grapes deserve a state of the art winery and gifted winemaker. Mark found both at DePonte Cellars in the nearby Dundee Hills AVA where his close friend Scott Baldwin, owner of DePonte extends a ‘custom crush’ arrangement with Eastburn Vineyards. Winemaking phenomenon Isabelle Dutartre consults with Buddy on critical vineyard decisions and takes over when the fruit arrives at the winery. Isabelle’s gentle and intuitive winemaking skills have earned her a growing recognition as one of Oregon’s most talented winemakers. Originally from France, Isabelle trained in Burgundy for 10 years and completed several vintages in Oregon. She made multiple transatlantic trips a year to oversee her wines, and recently relocated with her family to settle full time in the Willamette Valley.
