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 acre estate.
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 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
with tables and a large seated
gazebo provides a wonderful natural setting. Hosts Miki and Jerry Kramer invite
