Yamhill County, the center of Oregon's Pinot Noir production since the 1970s, is a beautiful landscape that is both welcoming to the eyes and calming to the soul. Most of the County is no more than an hour's drive southwest from downtown Portland. Gently rolling hills, lushly green in springtime and sere tan and brown after the long warm days of late summer, are covered with firs, oaks, and, of course, Pinot Noir vines.

The winery sits at the southern end of a range of hills overlooking the Coast Range and the small (and friendly) town of Carlton.
