Founded in 1998, Brooks is a reflection of the visionary Portland native, Jimi Brooks. His great respect for vineyard individuality and master of blending allowed his wines to achieve the greatest depth, flavors, and balance. While Jimi is no longer with us, his dynamic spirit lives on through his wines, family, and friends. His son Pascal, who was the source of his ultimate passion for life, is the sole owner of the winery and sister Janie Brooks Heuck has remarkably volunteered her time to lead it. 

In 2008, Brooks moved into its own space, not only granting winemaker Chris Williams complete control over production, but also providing a tasting room where the family can welcome the legions of fans from across the country. The next year, 2009, saw the purchase of the historic Eola Hills Vineyard. Planted in the 1970's, it comprises 5 acres each of tself-rooted Riesling and Pinot Noir and was certified biodynamic by Demeter in 2012.

Brooks Winery is steadily guided by the legacies  Jimi left: his dedication to organic and biodynamic farming in the vineyards, a gentle approach to winemaking, and his belief in how beautiful Pinot Noir and Riesling can be grown and produced in Oregon.
