“Nice gardens but small tasting room”
Reviewed 13 August 2014

Located in the Dundee Hills, the winery is worth a quick stop. For $15 you can taste 5 wines - mostly pinot noirs and a port. The staff was great but the tasting room is rather small and gets crowed as soon as a few parties arrive. The gardens are very nice. The owner has given a Japanese influence to the place which is a refreshing change.

“Excellent Wines”
Reviewed 27 November 2013

We went on a recommendation from a friend (we are from Pennsylvania) and were not disappointed. The Reds were fantastic (we joined the wine club cause they ship to PA). The pourer was knowledgeable and charming. Overall, a worthwhile experience. Allow 1/2 to 1 hour to taste.

“Great wine, very laid-back, beautiful view!”
Reviewed 3 November 2013

You'll need a car to get here (like all the wineries). This one was small and very laid-back. I suppose because it was so small it got crowded pretty quickly. There were quite a few people who live around the Willamette that just came in to buy a bottle and drink it out on the porch. If we had planned ahead we might have brought our own picnic lunch!

“Very pleasant interlude”
Reviewed 30 October 2013

We had a little time to kill before dinner and took a chance on this winery, based just on the name, which "sounded Japanese" to one of our group. We are so glad we made the detour! What a perfect setting. There is a small Japanese-style garden, a lovely deck with a view of the valley, and delicious wines. We don't drink reds, so we split a tasting ($10) with a friend who likes reds. We bought a bottle of the chardonnay after the tasting. The pinot was also excellent, it was hard to choose. Very nice people.

“Take a break from Pinots with French varietals”
Reviewed 19 October 2013 via mobile

All Burgundian style wines here, how refreshing in a day full of Pinots! Gorgeous Japanese decor, bring a lunch and taste while picnicking on the deck overlooking vineyards. Cynthia gave a wonderful tasting, so personable. Is off the beaten track down a gravel road but worth the trip, especially if you also go to Lange, which is just around the corner.
