Our Troon Vineyard estate wines, from Oregon’s Applegate Valley, are inspired by the wines of the Mediterranean coasts of Southern Europe. Place names like Madiran, Cahors, Bandol, Languedoc and Sardegna have provided the varieties which shine in our vineyards high in the Siskiyou Mountains. Our vineyards are all LIVE and Salmon Safe certified and we will receive our biodynamic and organic certifications this year.

Troon Vineyard is dedicated to regenerative agriculture and we practice biodynamics in our quest to put back more than we take from our plants and soils. We believe the only route to memorable wines, that reflect the terroir of where they were grown, is to be found in the healthy soils and vines that are the foundation of biodynamic agriculture. This philosophy continues in the cellar where our winemaking is minimalist and we use only native yeasts with no additives to ferment our wines and eschew the use of new oak barrels to reveal each nuance of wines grown in Oregon's Applegate Valley.

Winemaking at Troon is straightforward. Our grapes are field sorted by the same vineyard crew that tended them all season. Our goal is to express our vineyards rather than winemaking techniques in our wines. All Troon Vineyard wines are fermented only with native yeasts and no commercial yeasts, acids, sugar, enzymes or any additives are added to any of the wines. Our white wines are whole-cluster pressed then barrel fermented in mature French Oak barrels. For “Orange Wines” we are now using clay amphore to allow extended skin contact after fermentation. For red wines we focus on using whole-cluster and whole berry fruit in our fermenters, then use only mature French Oak barrels for ageing so that every nuance of our unique Applegate Valley fruit can express itself it our wines.

We are a new entity on a new voyage with a new mission since the arrival of owners Denise and Bryan White. Biodynamics will reinvigorate our soils and our vines, but it is also reinvigorating us. It is those combined energies that will be expressed in our wines. Wines full of energy are exciting wines and we could not be more excited about making them. Our desire to make special wines from what we know is a vineyard, a terroir, with exceptional potential is what started us on this voyage to begin with.

We are at the starting line of a long struggle to achieve our goals. Now that we have taken our first steps we feel like a sprinter whose energy has just been released by the starting gun.

The vines, the soil, the place, the wines and the people are all becoming one.

Learn MOre about our tasting Rooms

Sharing our wines is our greatest pleasure and so Troon Vineyard has two tasting rooms to make it even easier to find and taste our exceptional wines. 

At the Troon Winery and Vineyard in southern Oregon, surrounded by the natural beauty of the Siskiyou Mountains, we offer a full range of tasting experiences and events.  However, if Grants Pass is a bit far away from Portland for your schedule, you can experience our wines at our Carlton tasting room in the heart of the Willamette Valley and just an hour drive from Portland.

Both locations are open 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily. No appointments are required but are suggested for large groups.
