Recommended length of visit: <1 hour
Owner description: Enjoy hand-crafted wines in a stunning natural setting. Estate grown Pinot Noir, white wines, and dessert wines show the range of excellent wines. Tastings take place within the winery so you can see, smell, touch and taste how we make our wines. Sitting atop the storied Dundee Hills of Oregon, Winter's Hill is owned and operated by the Gladhart family. Today the third generation is developing the farm established in 1961. Together with our employees, we manage our vineyards, fields, and forests for the long term benefit of our family and our community. We are proud to share our estate Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris, Pinot Blanc (and a few other gems), and our land with our customers and visitors, and we look forward to your next visit.

We love this family run winery! All of their wine is great, my personal favorites are the dessert wines. They have a cute tasting room but are often set-up in the warehouse so you're in the middle of the action. Join the club for specials. The view is amazing, can see the whole valley.

We went here on a Thursday and while they were not officially open for tasting one of the owners (who I am sure was actually trying to get some work done) stopped and offered us a taste and talked with us awhile. It was very warm and inviting and the wine was wonderful. There is a place to picnic, also.

My husband and I stopped here after it was recommended by Jacques and Liz Rolland (A Tuscan Estate B&B). We are so glad we did! The owner did our tasting and she was extremely nice and friendly. It was also nice to taste a 2006 Pinot Noir after tasting tons and tons of 2008 and 2009 vintages at the other wineries. And their 2006 was fabulous! We will be looking into having some of it shipped to us. And their views are spectacular. We enjoyed a bottle of their 2006 with a picnic lunch from Red Hills market on their patio. Don't miss Winter's Hill!

Thank you for visiting Winter's Hill Vineyard and posting a review. I'm so glad you enjoyed our wines and patio. You also made great choices with a picnic from Red Hills Market, and by staying at A'Tuscan Estate, one of the best inns around. Sounds like a great trip!

Winter's Hill is a lovely stop for those spending a day in the Willamette Valley. You have to work a bit for it, up a road, a turn, a turn and a gravel road to the door. I promise you, it is well worth it. The Gladhart family are always on hand to welcome you, talk to you about wine and winemaking, and to pour you a taste or several. The wines are excellent, really great pinot noirs, pinot blancs, pinot gris and a very nice rose of pinot noir. The view is incredible, a sweeping vista across vineyards and hills, and if you are lucky you might just meet up with a group touring on horseback. They have wonderful, imaginative and unusual events (my favorite has been the wine and words events they do at Valentine's - where local authors read and sign their works). It really is one of my favorite places, I can't recommend it enough - so take the time to find it, you'll be glad that you did!
