Cardoon

For over 30 years we have produced Pinot noir, Chardonnay, Nebbiolo and a blend of white Italian varietals in Dundee, Oregon. Our estate vineyard, Clos Electrique, is planted with multiple clones in the Burgundian style. Our partner, Abbey Ridge, is one of the oldest and most beautifully-farmed vineyards in the state. Our grapes are sustainably farmed & not irrigated.

Every year, we put out a newsletter with information vital to your survival. Here’s the most recent one: Cave of Fermented Dreams To peruse the entire vault of mailers and newsletters, simply click here.
