About Us

The Sims Vineyard sits in the heart of the Dundee Hills between 600 and 700 feet in elevation. It was once an old hazelnut orchard, but as hazelnuts became unviable in the late 1990s, it made sense that the orchard become a vineyard. On the 10-acre property there are 7.5 acres planted to Pinot Noir grapes with the remaining acreage set aside for gardens. Within the gardens still remain a few hazelnut trees keeping the legacy alive. The Dundee Hills were formed between 6 and 17 million years ago by the Columbia River lava flows that made its way from the Oregon-Idaho border all the way to the coast. The lava solidified to form basalt. Over the years the rock weathered away in the high rainfalls of the Willamette Valley to form deep red clay soils. These volcanic soils are exceptionally good for growing grapes, particularly Pinot Noir.
