Experience Violet Vines

The natural beauty of Oregon and our love of the wine-growing region led to the creation of Violet Vines. The 88-acre estate vineyard property is nestled in Sheridan, Oregon within the McMinnville AVA, and our newest addition to our portfolio is a 5-acre property, the Set in Stone Vineyard, in the Rocks District of the Milton-Freewater AVA.

Violet Vines Ultra Violet Wine

The Very Best: Ultra Violet

At Violet Vines, our reserve wines are known as “Ultra Violets.” We don’t always produce an Ultra Violet during each vintage and for each varietal, but during our blending process when we identify a perfect combination of two or three exceptional barrels, that’s when we bottle these remarkable wines (currently available only to our Violet Vines Wine Club Members).

Unique & Invigorating Varietals

The warm days and cool nights in the McMinnville AVA, paired with our unique terroir in both of our vineyards, allows us to make vibrant yet classic wines without significant new oak influence. Fruit driven, healthy amounts of acid, no residual sugar, a pronounced mid palette, low to moderate alcohol, a strong backbone, and a long finish—this is Violet Vines.
