Cardwell Hill Cellars

Cardwell Hill Cellars Cardwell Hill Cellars began producing premium wines with the vineyard’s first harvest in 2001. While the design and construction of the bi-level processing building was being completed, the owners contracted with LaVelle Vineyards in nearby Elmira (OR) to custom crush their grapes and bottle the 2001 as well as, a year later, the 2002 Pinot Noir vintages. The 2003 harvest included, for the first time, grapes from the original Wadensvil vines combined with those from the new plantings of Pommard, Dijon 115 and Dijon 777 clones. Having just joined the staff, winemaker Jim Kakacek oversaw the crafting of the award-winning, 2003 Estate Bottled Pinot Noir. Next, Cardwell Hill Cellars introduced a 2004 Pinot Gris. Picked in early October, the grapes were vinified by whole-cluster pressing and cool fermentation. The wine was aged in the Alsatian style sur lies, then filtered and bottled in February, 2005.

Cardwell Hill Winery is just a short, three-quarters of a mile from Kings Valley Highway 223. From Corvallis, take Highway 20/34 west to Philomath. Bear right at the split between Highways 20 and 34, continuing on Highway 20 towards the town of Newport. Follow the blue sign directing a right turn onto Kings Valley Highway 223. Cross over the Marys River and, near the top of the rise, turn right onto Cardwell Hill Drive. Continue past the Degas Vineyard on the left and continue back to the wine tasting room, which is located at the front of the winery.
