Airlie Winery

 Mary Olson  purchased Airlie Winery and the estate vineyard in 1997. Their winemaker Elizabeth Clark joined the Airlie Family in 2005 along with Susan Simons, marketing and sales in 2018. Sebastian, 2003 and Gustavo 2012 round out the Willamette Valley’s best vineyard crew.

Nestled in the coastal mountain range on the western edge of the Willamette Valley, the inviting setting, complete with a picnic area and pond, extends any plans for just a brief stop. Located in the Heart of the Willamette Valley, Corvallis, Salem, Albany, Dallas and Monmouth are just a short drive away.
Thirty acres of grapes consisting of nine varietals: Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris, Pinot Blanc, Chardonnay, Riesling, Müller Thurgau, Gewürztraminer, Maréchal Foch, and Muscat Ottonel make up sixty-five percent of the grapes used in making Airlie Wines. BeckenRidge Vineyard, located 20 miles away west of Dallas Oregon, supplies the remaining grapes.


Varnum Vintners

At Varnum Vintners our passion is to make delicious, small production wines that have a clear expression of vineyard and vintage. We make the wines we love and experiment with new grapes and styles that peak our interest. Our focus is on old vine Riesling, Pinot Noir and Sparkling Wines. Our hope is to share these wines with people whom share our love of wine and the experience of wine country.
