Dick and Betty O'Brien planted Elton Vineyard in 1983 and spent their lives growing Pinot noir and Chardonnay. It was named one of Oregon's top ten vineyards by Wine Press Northwest. They have enjoyed providing their wine grapes to some of Oregon's most talented winemakers over the years, but realized a lifelong dream in 2017 with the debut of their own wines.
