Thursday-Monday 11am-4pm; or by appointment
Physicist, farmer and winemaker, Don Hagge personally crafts VIDON wines from the Chehalem Mountains estate vineyard he has built with his wife, Vicki (hence the name Vi-Don). VIDON produces 7 wine varieties and is 100% Estate. Although the emphasis is on 5 clones of Pinot noir, small blocks of Chardonnay, Pinot gris, Pinot blanc, Viognier, Tempranillo and Syrah are also planted. The winery and vineyard is certified LIVE and VIDON practices sustainable farming and minimal intervention in the winemaking process including indigenous fermentations.
The tasting room is in the winery and provides an intimate setting to experience VIDON wines while the patio on the crush deck offers a relaxing spot to get to know the winemakers and enjoy the dramatic views of the Willamette Valley and Mount Jefferson. The current tasting flight provides a compare-and-contrast that showcases the unique characteristics of the individual clones and underscores the differences between recent vintages at the estate.
VIDON welcomes wine lovers Friday through Sunday or any other day by appointment. We pride ourselves on getting to know each visitor personally. No buses or limousines please.
