From the Hart of our vineyard, from the Hart of the Dundee Hills, from the Hart of Oregon, the Gladhart Family is honored to present the Hartland. Growing just a short tractor ride from the winery, our Pinot noir is hand-picked at the peak of ripeness. Each block of the vineyard is kept separate during fermentation and barrel aging to express its unique characteristics of soil, slope and clonal selection. Each vintage a few blocks stand out from the others for their intensity, balance and complexity. We select a few barrels from those blocks to create the Single Block Series, our most sought-after wines. We selected yet again from those wines to create the Hartland.
Winter's Hill Estate was established in 1990 in the Dundee Hills. All of our wines are grown, produced and bottled on our 100-acre estate of vineyards, oak savanna and woodlands. The Gladhart family owns and operates Winter’s Hill, tending our vines, making our wines and greeting you in the winery when you come to visit. Winemaker Russell Gladhart studied and worked in vineyards in Oregon, France and New Zealand before joining Winter's Hill full time in 2004. Winter's Hill wines are distributed in select markets, and enjoyed by our Cellar Door Club members in more than 25 states.
