to Del Rio
Our ranch has a rich history in this young land. It began as a pear orchard, producing pears for over 90 years, supplying premium fruit around the globe. The property was acquired in 1997 by our business partner, Lee Traynham. Lee had a new vision for the property and planted grapes over the next two years. After selling our tomato farm in Arbuckle, California, our family joined Lee in Oregon. Ready to take on the new adventure we took our expertise and roots in farming and created a dynamic viticulture operation in the heart of Southern Oregon.
We have continued to expand our estate over the years and now grow 530 acres and twelve grape varieties at Del Rio, Table Rock, and Birdseye vineyards. Del Rio is the largest single vineyard in Southern Oregon and we are one of the top wine producers in the state. In addition to splendid vineyards we have a state of the art winemaking facility in the iconic red barn, once home to the pear packing house. Our facility produces fruit, juice, and wine for many wineries throughout the United States in addition to crafting our family of brands.
Growth and improvement excite us, yet we seek to always maintain the pivotal balance of remaining down to earth. The family we have established with co-workers, customers, and friends is what makes producing each vintage meaningful. We are pleased to share our wines that we have worked so hard to craft.
