Van Duzer Vineyards thrives in its cool-weather location in the foothills of the Van Duzer Corridor, where the western wind blows through as it enters the Willamette Valley. The cool breeze slows grape ripening, allowing for a longer hang time in the vineyard and more intense flavor in the grapes. This family-owned estate vineyard practices sustainable farming practices and is endorsed by the internationally recognized organizations Low Input Viticulture and Enology and Salmon-Safe. Van Duzer Vineyards is a donor to the Oregon Wine Research Institute.
