Winery Description and History (Continued)

...Sharon and Bill can do all the winemaking with the help of friends, neighbors and family during crush and bottling. The winery is completely self-contained and handles all bottling, labeling and case storage on-site.

The winery and vineyard are wholly owned by Bill and Sharon Beran. Bill is the primary winemaker, but he relies heavily on Sharon's palate and nose when it is time for major decisions. Bill is a retired physicist with a forty year career in high-tech research and development. Sharon has recently retired as the business manager for a dental practice.

Our winery is located in a picturesque converted dairy barn just 20 miles southwest of downtown Portland, on a site that was homesteaded in 1875.

We are dedicated to the exclusive production of small quantities of premium estate bottled Pinot Noir. The vineyard, planted in 1972 and 1979, lies in the curve of the Chehelam Mountains and has spectacular sweeping views of Mt. Hood and the High Cascades. The winery's historic building is open to the public twice a year on the Memorial Day and Thanksgiving weekends. Please call to arrange your visit any other time.
