Deep rooted in family tradition, the family first planted in the Willamette Valley in the 1940's, started Scenic Valley Farms in 1970, and is now run by the third generation. Today they grow grapes, cherries, pears, hazelnuts, green beans, grass seed, and hops. The wines at Scenic Valley Farms are grown in their estate vineyards and handcrafted in their estate winery. The goal with every vintage is to represent their fruit to the highest quality and make wines you can enjoy.
Brian Zielinski, Farm & Vineyard Manager, represents the 3rd generation of the Zielinski family farm. He graduated from Oregon State in 2006 and man ages daily operations of Scenic Valley, as well as his Hare Vineyard in South Salem. Gabriel Jagle, Winemaker, was mentored in winemaking by Brad Ford, Russ Raney, and Barney Watson. His fruit is hand-picked, fermented in small lots with house yeast and wild yeast, then aged in French Oak, Oregon Oak, and Stainless Steel. He uses many natural winemaking techniques, but also enjoys tinkering with chemistry and various outdated technologies. All of his wines are hand-filtered (or unfiltered) and hand-bottled.
