WEBSITE

Planted in 1974, Winderlea Vineyard is highly regarded as one of the oldest and finest in Oregon. Donna Morris and Bill Sweat moved from Boston in 2006 to start second careers in pursuit of their passion for wine, purchasing this 20 acre vineyard in the heart of the Dundee Hills. Both Bill and Donna carry a deep commitment to the Oregon wine industry; Donna is on the board of Oregon Pinot Camp and the President of the Dundee Hills Winegrowing Association, and Bill is the President of the Oregon Wine Board. Focussing on Burgundian style Pinot noirs, Winderlea's winery and estate vineyard are certified biodynamic and organic for both farming and winemaking.
