Welcome to Claygate Estate Vineyards,
a dog friendly, tasting room and vineyard located on the distinguished Ribbon Ridge AVA in Oregon’s Wine Country. Planted in 2008 on 3.25 acres, our small production wines are single estate Pinot Noirs.
Our wine making philosophy is focused on showcasing the natural complexities of the coveted Ribbon Ridge terroir, Pinot Noir clones 115 & 777 and the unique microclimate that surrounds and protects our vines. Our vineyard and winemaking team produce wines that are simple, elegant, unfined and unfiltered.
Ribbon Ridge AVA
Our vineyard is one of few in this small appellation that is nestled like an island within the larger Chehalem and Willamette Valley AVAs – protected by the surrounding mountains to allow for a consistently warmer and drier environment during the growing season.
