Sweet Cheeks Winery
Founded in 2005, Sweet Cheeks Winery lies atop a 55-acre estate vineyard with plantings that date back to 1978, sitting on 140 acres of prime sloping hillside overlooking the Briggs Hill Valley. The vineyards were christened Sweet Cheeks because of the curious swell of the hillside that became evident as the soil was plowed and then planted with grapes. The nickname stuck and has been a tongue in “cheek” favorite ever since.
While our vineyard has been producing Pinot Noir, Riesling, Pinot Gris and chardonnay for over 30 years, we have expanded our wine selection beyond the estate grown wines. Forging loyal relationships with other vineyards throughout Oregon, we now produce a wide selection of warmer climate varietals, helping to quench your craving or surprise you with a lesser known varietal like Tempranillo.
Our philosophy is to allow the terroir and varietal characteristics for each harvest to be fully expressed by advocating minimal handling and gentle processing throughout the wine’s life. Attention to detail at every stage is paramount throughout the vinification process.
We opened our doors on Thanksgiving weekend 2005 and have continued to provide delicious wines in a fun, relaxing atmosphere. Open every day year-round, you can walk through our doors and enjoy complimentary tastings while chatting with our knowledgeable staff. Throughout the year we do host signature events with specialty foods and entertainment, giving you even more time to soak in the breathtaking view and grab some select wines.
We look forward to giving you an experience and wine you can come back to year after year!
