Together we will build a winery adjacent to Elton Vineyard. Dick and Betty O’Brien planted the Elton Vineyard in 1983 and spent their lives growing Pinot Noir and Chardonnay in the Eola Hills south of Dundee. It was named one of Oregon’s top ten vineyards by Wine Press Northwest and in Wine & Spirits as one of the five key vineyards in the Eola-Amity Hills AVA. They have enjoyed providing their winegrapes to some of Oregon's most talented winemakers over the years, including our Consulting Winemaker on the project, Isabelle Meunier. Since Isabelle's first vintage in Oregon (2007), 22 wines have been awarded a score of 95 and above, by Wine Spectator Magazine,
citing them as "Classic." Isabelle produced 11 of those wines, including the highest rated Oregon Pinot Noir and Chardonnay ever.The Elton winery will focus on small lots of premium Pinot Noir and Chardonnay starting with the 2015 vintage, which is currently aging in the barrel. The boutique winery is being designed by Architect Joe Chauncey of Boxwood and will feature a stunning by-appointment-only tasting room with beautiful vineyard views.

We have planted our vineyard of 15 acres alongside those Cabernet Sauvignon visionaries at SeVein. Located on the Oregon side of the Walla Walla Valley, SeVein is a collection of some of the highest quality vineyard land in the world anchored by the renowned Seven Hills Vineyard. Named in honor of Pierre Pambrun, Walla Walla’s First Citizen who led the Hudson’s Bay trading post there and Founder, Jim Bernau's fifth grandfather. The wines will be made by Consulting Winemaker, Jon Meuret of Maison Bleue Winery, who has produced some of the highest scoring Walla Walla wines. Pambrun will focus on ultra-premium Cabernet Sauvignon wines, starting with the 2015 vintage which is currently aging in the barrel. Together we will build a by-appointment-only tasting room, designed by Architect Joe Chauncey of Boxwood, to feature vineyard views overlooking the Walla Walla Valley and Blue Mountains.
