About

The McMinnville AVA of nearly 40,500 acres sits due west of Yamhill County’s seat, the city of McMinnville. It extends approximately 20 miles south-southwest toward the mouth of the Van Duzer Corridor, Oregon’s lowest Coast Range pass to the Pacific Ocean.

Encompassing the land above 200 feet and below 1,000 feet in elevation on the east and southeast slopes of these foothills of the Coast Range mountains, the soils of the McMinnville AVA are primarily uplifted marine sedimentary loams and silts, with alluvial overlays and a base of uplifting basalt.

The soils are uniquely shallow for winegrowing. The planted slopes sit in the protecting weather shadow of the Coast Range mountains, and rainfall is lower than on sites to the east. The primarily east- and south-facing sites take advantage of the drying winds from the Van Duzer Corridor. Approximately 600 acres are currently planted here.

We love to explore on the weekends, so it’s been a bummer being stuck inside due to the hazardous air quality. Lots of movies, legos, and snuggling over here instead! God bless Netflix.

My happy Friday face when I get to visit acheerfulnote for lunch, while sipping the rosé she cultivated and crafted 😍 blessed. If you haven't had yamhillvalleyvineyards 2019 rosé... You're truly missing out. I love a good tannic structure soaked for 10 hours 😍
Who else is indulging in an early happy hour drink? 🍷🥃🥂🍻🍹🍸

New mission: get a shot of my car like this at all the McMinnville wineries 😂
I may live in Portland, but I now have a satellite office in #downtownmcminnville!!! I'm addicted to going places to see the various forms of beauty around Oregon. I'm truly grateful that all the people I work with bring me to places like this... The wine country. mcminnville_ava I love you! (winecrushpodcast I luh you too)
This view of my cute little car maysarawinery depicts me quite perfectly. 👉🏼 The winery, the flowers, the barrels, the trees, the openness 😍🍷 🥂

On a similar note the wineries of the #mcminnvilleava are all so damn gorgeous!!!
Happy almost weekend everyone ♥

Hanna Momtazi is a culinary wiz (but won't necessarily let you know right away because she LOVES to be cooked for!) who cooks delicious meals for our harvest crews, and is a master of cheese plate design when she’s not working in the acounting side of the businesses. She'll tell you it isn't perfect because she bought pre-cubed butternut squash when she just didn't have time to stop at the local farm to get one — but she'll be wrong. It's always perfect and full of love.⁠

Her favorite bottle from Maysara is our NV Sparkling Pinot Noir Rose paired alongside a charcuterie board with her staples of triple cream French Brie cheese, smoked gouda and manchego- the one pairing she could eat all the time⁠

Her favorite vintage is: 2007⁠

Her favorite NON-Maysara adult beverage is: Chardonnay from Brick House or Cameron Winery or a simple Kentucky Mule with Bulleit Rye

Repost kidsinthecellar Celebrating #nationalwhitewineday with Riesling from varnumvintners (happy birthday month Cyler! ❤️ how easy this goes down. We grilled tonight and it is nicely acidic with juicy pear, grapefruit and a hint of sweetness. Yum! (the 🐝 who flew into my glass thought so too. BTW, I freed her unharmed 😊)
