Led by owner, Paul Durant, this is a rare opportunity for a behind-the-scenes look at the family’s extensive vineyards, unique olive grove and state of the art olive mill. The tour will offer a history about the family’s 40 years of farming in the Dundee Hills, a tour of the olive mill & tastings of our award-winning olive oils. Next, the tour will head into the vineyard and explore the journey from grape to glass. Amongst the vines, tastings from the family’s estate wines will be offered and discussed.
The tour will conclude with an al fresco gourmet lunch catered by Community Plate which showcases our distinctive Oregon Olive Mill extra virgin olive oils and Durant Vineyards estate wines in a private and secluded area of the vineyard.

Red Ridge Farms
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. For more information about upcoming events and lodging availability, please call 503-864-8502. Red Ridge is located at 5510 NE Breyman Orchard Road, Dayton, Oregon.
