Join Durant Vineyards at Red Ridge Farms in celebrating 40 years of family farming!
The Durant family commemorates this 40-year milestone, with an open house celebrating the development of their property. Guests are invited to meander through the beautiful grounds, gift store, plant nursery, wine tasting room, olive grove, and the Northwest’s only commercial olive pressing facility. Enjoy appetizers, hand-made ravioli, house-pressed olive oils, and finish off with artisan Arbequina ice cream from Salt & Straw. A flight of Durant Vineyard wines will be offered throughout the property and will be featuring the exciting re-release of our 2011 Bishop Pinot Noir. The Bishop Pinot is a limited release crafted from the fruit of the original Pommard vines planted by the Durant family in 1973: a perfect way to celebrate.

About Red Ridge Farms
Red Ridge Farms, as featured in Food & Wine Magazine and EveryDay with Rachael Ray magazine, is owned by the Durant family and is a unique destination in Oregon’s Willamette Valley with a nursery and garden shop, the Oregon Olive Mill, Durant Vineyards and a country cottage. The Durants planted their first vineyard in the Dundee Hills of Oregon in 1973 and are pioneers in Oregon’s wine industry. Many of the original vineyards continue to flourish and produce grapes today and Durant Vineyards provides wine grapes to the premier wineries in Oregon and produces over 1,600 cases of Pinot noir, Pinot gris and Chardonnay. Continuing to lead the way in agricultural ventures, the Durants opened Red Ridge Farms in 2001, a herb and specialty plant nursery, and have planted one of the largest olive groves in Oregon. At the Oregon Olive Mill, they process their olives into oil using olive varietals grown on site including: Arbequina and Picual from Spain, Leccino, Pendolino, and Coratina from Italy and Koroneiki from Greece. The bottled olive oil is augmented by additional olives from California as the trees reach their full maturity. The Oregon Olive Mill also houses an event space with a patio overlooking the Willamette Valley used for corporate and private events. Two lodging accommodations are available for guests at Red Ridge Farms, a one bedroom guest suite overlooking the valley and the two bedroom Stoneycrest cottage, which overlooks Durant Vineyards. Both properties are available to rent by the night, weekend or week and feature full kitchens and breathtaking views.
