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.

A farm is more than land & crops, it is it's family's heritage & future.⁠

Every day can be Earth Day🌿This is a value Youngberg Hill & the Bailey family live by...caring for the land in collaboration with nature and creating a symbiosis that consistently makes the land better than it was the year before so that generations from now our farm will not only be a gift from Mother Nature but also a gift to her🌎💚⁠

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.

Hike @ YVV! Enjoy the sights, sounds, smells, and freedom of walking through a growing vineyard. Choose from two trails (easy or moderate) or combine the two for a longer hike. Trails are open 11am-3pm daily. Just check in at the Tasting Room for a map and schedule your wine tasting for when you’re done 🥾🍇🍷🤙🏼 ...
