Made In Oregon
The Winery and Vineyards are nestled in the foothills of the Gales
Creek Valley, a small agricultural region within the Willamette Valley,
30 miles west of Portland. When the Shafer family started the business
in 1973 they had no plans for winemaking, just grape growing on the 70
The quality of the fruit harvested proved to be exceptional, reflecting
the diligent hours of care and dedication needed to grow uncompromising
grapes. In the fall of 1978 after years of carefully tending the vines,
a small amount of wine was produced from estate grown grapes for Shafer
Vineyard Cellars. The quality of the wines and encouragement from
colleagues inspired the Shafer family to design and construct a winery.
The winery's first crush was 1981, vinifing little more than 3,000
gallons. Over the years, demand for the wine pushed the winery capacity
to the current production level of approximately 30,000 gallons.
The design and
settling of the winery is uniquely Oregon in attitude. The simplicity
of the vineyards and the quiet strength of the stately old oak trees
that border the winery creates a beautiful backdrop for the cedar
buildings. The gentle slope of the 2 acre oak shaded picnic
with tables and a
large seated gazebo provides a wonderful natural setting. Harvey and
Miki Shafer invite visitors to enjoy the facilities for picnics or to
just relax and enjoy the view.
