About Us

Established in 1982, Montinore Estate is the largest estate producer of wines made from Biodynamic® grapes in the country. With a 200-acre Demeter Certified Biodynamic® and Stellar Certified Organic vineyard located in north Willamette Valley in Oregon, we focus on producing superior Pinot Noirs, cool climate whites, and fascinating Italian varietals.

President and Chief Viticulturist, Rudy Marchesi, side-by-side with Head Winemaker, Stephen Webber, and General Manager and daughter, Kristin Marchesi, work closely to shepherd grapes through the evolution from fruit to wine.

By employing thoughtful Biodynamic® and organic growing practices and utmost care in winemaking, the quality of the vineyards is reflected in the grapes and then in the wine.

The majority of grapes used in our wines come from our home estate vineyard. Planted in 1982, Montinore Estate is a 200-acre Demeter Certified Biodynamic® and Stellar Certified Organic estate that lies at the northern end of the Willamette Valley appellation and along the east-facing slope of the Coastal Range foothills in Oregon. In addition to the certifications, we use dry farming and sustainable growing practices. This is an ideal site for the nine grape varieties we grow here: Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris, Gewürztraminer, Riesling, Müller-Thurgau, Teroldeg, Lagrein, Muscat and Sauvignon Blanc.

The approach to winemaking focuses on producing wines that are an expression of the Willamette Valley, while ensuring they are approachable, food friendly and structured for graceful aging. From harvest dates to fermentation temperatures, from cultivating indigenous yeasts to selecting the perfect barrels for aging, each decision is thoughtfully made with one end goal in mind: To craft wines that reflect the place where the grapes are grown, offering freshness, liveliness and complexity, while showcasing the best characteristics of each variety.
