WEBSITE

De Ponte Cellars is the site of one of the oldest vineyards in the Willamette Valley. Purchased by Scott and Rae Ellen Baldwin in 1999, both brought a passion to enliven these historic vineyards. Scott's family comes from generations of Portuguese winemakers, instilling an appreciation for both the process of winemaking as well as the togetherness it provides for family and friends. From the very beginning, Isabelle Dutartre has been winemaker at De Ponte, bringing experience from her native France to put De Ponte on the map as a producer of exceptional Pinot Noir.
