Founded in 1995 by winemaker Scott Shull, Raptor Ridge Winery gets its name from the many families of raptors – Red-tailed Hawks, Kestrels, Sharp-shinned Hawks and Owls – that share the winery's 27-acre estate. The vineyard is named "Tuscowallame," the indigenous word for "place where the owls dwell."

Tuscowallame Vineyard is nestled along a foggy ridge on the northeast side of the Chehalem Mountains, ten miles north of Newberg, Oregon. There are 18 acres of property under vine, including blocks dedicated to Pinot noir clones 115, Wadenswil, 677, 777, Pommard and 114. A small amount of Gruener Veltliner and Pinot gris are also planted in the site's Loess-based Laurelwood soil. Each Tuscowallame Vineyard block is named to honor the foreman who planted it: Adalfo, Macario and Dustin.

In addition to production from its own estate vineyard, Raptor Ridge harvests winegrapes from other Willamette Valley growers, including: Arbre Vert, Bellevue Cross, Gran Moraine, Harbinger, Hawks View, Meredith Mitchell, Shaw, Shea, Stony Mountain and Yamhill Springs Vineyards.

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.
