Bjornson Vineyard is part of a scenic 107-acre farm, located in the heart of Oregon’s Eola-Amity Hills. The vineyard is planted with 28 acres of vines on volcanic soils (Jory/Nekia) ranging in elevation from 450-550 feet.

Our priorities are simple: care for the land, make exceptional wine, and enjoy life’s journey. We support these goals by generating renewable energy, and farming sustainably to protect the ecosystem in the vineyard, surrounding creeks, and woodlands. In 2014, the grapes were harvested on September 22, and the wine was aged in French oak before bottling.

This barrel selection honors Mark’s grandfather, William Arthur (Art), who tenaciously worked his North Dakota farm through the drought of the 1930’s. His thrift, hard work, and partnership with his wife Isabel, enabled them to send two children to college during the Great Depression.
