A petite vineyard with a boutique winery
Chehalem Mountains AVA | Newberg, Oregon
| (VEE-DOHN) |
Owned & operated by Don & Vicki Hagge since 1999, we are a LIVE certified sustainable vineyard and winery located in the countryside of Newberg, Oregon. We are situated in the Chehalem Mountains AVA at an elevation between 400 and 500 feet facing south towards the Red Hills of Dundee. We purchased the land in 1999, planted the vines, harvest the fruit, make the wine and sell it out of the winery. We believe winemaking begins in the vineyard and are proud of the Oregon wines that our Chehalem Mountains vineyard produces on an annual basis.
Our winemaking philosophy could best be described as minimum safe supervision.
Except for the occasional gentle nudge to maintain certain chemical parameters, we attempt to let each wine become what it wants to become.
For example, all our fermentations arise spontaneously using the vineyard’s native flora.
Our intent is to capture the unique personality of the vineyard that evolves each vintage.

Our Tasting Room
We cater to Oregon wine tasters who like to “peek behind the curtain”. The tasting area, located prominently within the production space of our estate vineyard, allows guests to observe the winemaking process and taste the results. Depending on the season, visitors will learn about grape maturation, fermentation, elevage (aging) or bottling. Our tasting flights are structured thematically to highlight a specific attribute such as vintage variation or clonal differences. We also offer an unusual range of varietals grown on the property including Syrah, Tempranillo and Viognier. Come and learn for yourself what makes Vidon’s Oregon wines unique.
