The Vineyard

Located in Polk County some four miles west of Highway 99W and five miles northwest of Monmouth Freedom Hill Vineyard occupies a gentle southeast slope.  We believe the southeast aspect is critical as harvest nears because the early sun helps the dew dry from the grapes and take advantage of the dwindling heat of fall.  Our elevation is 350’ to 600’ allowing for cold air to drain to the valley floor yet low enough to benefit from heat radiated from the valley.

Stakes-for-the-vineyardThe soils are sedimentary, uplifted seabed, generally seen to be among the oldest in the region.  We believe the distinctive character of our soil coupled with the microclimate and meticulous farming practices produce a product of considerable structure that age exceptionally well and create consistent, structured and powerful wines.
