Hillcrest Winery & Distillery


As Oregon’s oldest estate winery and the birthplace of Oregon Pinot Noir, we have shared in the creation of what is “Oregon Wine.” Founded in 1961 by the “Father of Oregon Wine”, Richard Sommer, we continue today to innovate and lead the way into the next generation. With a focus on dry farming and old-world techniques, we invite you to come and experience our gracious and educational guided tasting. Our family’s wines are not sold in stores and is the only winery that is a state historical site. Open daily for tastings 11-5. To the Genie in the bottle!
