Wineries in Oregon: ArborBrook Vineyards may have been born out of love at first taste. When wine connoisseur Dave Hansen first started dating his future wife, Mary, it was determined that Mary needed to “learn how to drink wine.” This interest evolved—and so did they—and the couple eventually made their home on 30 acres draped along the southern flank of Yamhill County’s Chehalem mountain range. In an area widely established as an excellent incubator for Pinot Noir, this family-owned boutique winery produces award-winning wines that deliver sheer elegance.
Pouring wines that have been esteemed by Wine Spectator to “linger effortlessly” is easily done in an atmosphere full of casual grace. From Arborbrook’s delectably catered events to regular tastings, offered every Thursday through Sunday in Dave and Mary’s converted 100-year-old , barn, guests are treated to the Hansens’ personal touch that combines “life with wine.” They can also look forward to tasting the many wines that have earned high praise from Robert Parker and high points from Wine Enthusiast, and often an unplanned conversational walk through the vineyards with either Dave or Mary. The Hansens’ love of wine and family is at ArborBrook Vineyards.
