The Vineyard
Jubilee Vineyard sits on the western edge of the Eola-Amity Hills on a mix of sedimentary and volcanic soils. Powerful coastal winds from the Van Duzer corridor preserve acidity and boost color saturation. Gamay planted in 2011. Dry farmed. Owners Steve and Mary Walker are conscientious growers dedicated to fully transitioning their vineyard to organic farming practices.
