If Hand-Crafted, Limited Availability wines are of interest to you, you’ve come to the right place.

Hanson Vineyards is a small boutique winery in the northern Willamette Valley. With our “hands-on” style, we like to think that our role as grape grower plays as important a role as that of winemaker. Farming has been a part of our family’s legacy for many generations.

The farm in Monitor, Oregon came into our family in the late 1920s – that is where our long history of growing grapes begins! During prohibition, our great-grandfather had a substantial planting of concord and Niagara grapes which he sold to people throughout the north Willamette Valley for less than legal purposes. As time and generations have passed, we eventually turned to the art of making wine. First as a hobby, we made grape and berry wines for our family and friends starting in the early 1970s.

Things took a serious turn in 2000, when Clark planted his first round of carefully selected vinifera to improve the quality of our wines. From this French varietal stock, we now make a solid selection of wines conducive to Oregon’s unique wine-making weather and climate:

Pinot Noir • Riesling • Pinot Gris • Pinot Blanc

Over the next few years, we will be planting many acres of these vines, slowly, but surely, as we plan our growth and expansion. We will not, however, vary from our hands-on philosophy of raising vines and making wines.

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.

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.
