Our Vineyards
Kason Vineyards' primary vineyard sits on 15 acres of sloping valley terrace at 325 feet above sea level in Oregon's Yamhill-Carlton District, an American Viticultural Area rapidly gaining reknown for its exemplary Pinot Noir. Situated in the rain shadow of Oregon's coast range and surrounded by wide vistas of open hills and fields, our vineyard benefits from low humidity and exceptional airflow. Such conditions offer our vines enhanced protection from fungal diseases which can devastate harvests and compromise vine health. The vineyard's soil is comprised of Woodburn silt loam and Willakenzie loam, a mix of soil that drains well and allows us to produce grapes that yield both intense fruit character and fully developed structure.

Eight acres of the vineyard are planted with the Pinot Noir clones Wadensville, Pommard, Dijon 777, and Dijon 115, and in spring and fall of 2006, we expanded our plantings to include one acre of Chardonnay 76 and two additional acres of Dijon 115 Pinot Noir.

In addition to our Yamhill-Carlton District vineyard, we also offer wines from our Bell Road Vineyard, on a southwest facing slope of the Chehelem mountains, and a planting of Pommard Pinot Noir in the Dundee Hills. Our vineyard manager and vintner bring the same commitment to not only fostering vines that will produce the highest quality fruit, but also to ensuring the long-term health of our sites' land and soil, to all of our vineyard plantings. We feel this commitment and dedication shows in the exceptional wines we strive to produce.
