My daughter, Cate, is in Oregon learning about viniculture and the wonders of the wine making process at Witness Tree Vineyards. SHe finds it amazing, the recognition of the grapes, the percentage of sugar versus water, and all the rest still to come. Check out their website to learn more about their wines:
Witness Tree Vineyard is a small producer of premium quality Pinot Noir and Chardonnay made entirely from grapes grown on our 100-acre estate. As winegrowers, we believe that only by tending our own vines can we produce the finest wines. Low yields in the vineyard and minimal handling in the winery allow us to create wines of depth, elegance, concentration, and character. They are the ultimate expression of the earth from which they were born.
Witness Tree Vineyard is owned by Dennis & Carolyn Devine. The Devines are originally from the Midwest, but have lived throughout the country during Dennis’ career as a clinical researcher in the pharmaceutical industry. Carolyn serves as President and Business Manager. Witness Tree is located in the Eola Hills, northwest of Salem, an area recognizedas one of Oregon’s premier growing regions.
