STOLLER FAMILY ESTATE, Dundee Hills
The Stoller family established the property in 1943 as a turkey farm. A vineyard followed 52 years later when Bill Stoller - already a partner in the esteemed Chehalem Winery - planted 20 acres of Chardonnay & Pinot Noir under the tutelage of Burgundian winemaker Patrice Rion. Today, it is the largest contiguous vineyard in Oregon’s Dundee Hills, their wines are 100% estate grown, and Stoller Vineyard is a highly-regarded source of fruit for several other top Oregon wineries. The 373 acres estate includes 200 acres of vineyard at elevations from 220 - 640 feet.
The family controls every step of the winemaking process, from pruning to bottling and everything in between. Winemaker Melissa Burr, a Willamette native, joined Stoller in 2003. The result is award-winning wines that are balanced, complex, and consistently exceptional. Much has changed from the original farm, but one thing remains constant: a pioneering spirit. Stoller winery was one of the first in in the world to receive LEED Gold certification for being sustainably built and environmentally friendly.
