The iconic Witness Tree at the northeast corner of the vineyard is a symbol of our mission to bear witness to the vineyard’s incomparable design and meticulous farming, allowing it to produce grapes of rare quality and concentration.

Who are we?
We are Oregonians, entrepreneurs, farmers, winemakers.

Most of all, we are the devoted stewards of the singular experience that is Witness Tree Vineyard terroir and viticulture.

Our stewardship is the fruit of an enduring passion for the art of boutique, world-renowned winemaking, especially terroir-driven Willamette Valley Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.

The Land + The Vine

The beautiful 105-acre domain of Witness Tree Vineyard sits amidst a family of pedigreed vineyards in the Eola-Amity AVA, including Cristom, Spirit Hill, and Temperance Hill Vineyards.

Like many prime grape-growing regions around the world, Witness Tree Vineyard sits on a slope, facing southeast.

Going up the hill, the vineyard is classified into three distinct sections; each at a different elevation, with a unique soil profile, and producing three distinct quality categories of grapes.

A comprehensive terroir and soil analysis was completed by geologist Pedro Parra and the farming team led by vineyard manager and world-renowned viticulturist Ryan Hannaford to maximize soil fertility for each varietal, clone type, and planting method.

53.35 acres of the property are currently fully planted and producing, composed of Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, and a single, choice block of Aligote.

We firmly believe that great winemaking begins with great farming in the vineyard.

Our farming practice, led by Jorge Chavez and his team (many of which live on-site at Witness Tree), are hyper-focused and detail oriented, with such careful attention reflected in each aspect of their vineyard work.

On the technical/analytics side, Shane Moore of Atlas Farming diligently oversees the farming team’s practices, consistently running diagnostics to ensure that the vineyard soils and practices are operating at optimum health.

This degree of care gives winemakers who source from Witness Tree the ability to produce unparalleled, small batch, premium, terroir-driven wines, redolent of a characteristic Eola-Amity Hills terroir.
