Hanson Vineyards is a small boutique winery in the northern Willamette Valley. With a “hands-on” style, they believe their role as grape grower plays as important a role as that of winemaker. Farming has been a part of their family’s legacy for many generations.
The farm in Monitor, Oregon came into the Hanson family in the late 1920s. During prohibition, their great-grandfather had a substantial planting of concord and Niagara grapes which he sold to people throughout the north Willamette Valley for less than legal purposes. As time and generations have passed, they eventually turned to the art of making wine. First as a hobby, they made grape and berry wines for their family and friends starting in the early 1970s.
Things took a serious turn in 2000, when Clark planted his first round of carefully selected vinifera to improve the quality of the wines. From this French varietal stock, they now make a solid selection of wines conducive to Oregon’s unique wine-making weather and climate: Pinot Noir, Resling, Pinot Gris, and Pinot Blanc.
