So our high altitude vineyard is adorned with distinctive soils, climate, and east facing slopes that produce wines with extraordinary balance, flavor, and intensity. We believe great wines come from the great soil. Notably, by protecting our vineyard soils through practices that are certified sustainable.

In 1997, Doug & Dionne Irvine returned to their roots in Oregon with the desire to raise their daughters in the same place that they had such fond childhood memories. Choosing Ashland, and soon discovered that the 80-acre ranch new home would turn out to be an incredibly unique vineyard site. While the first vines were planted in 2007. And the journey continued from there when Doug’s sister and brother in law, Kelly and Duane Roberts, joined Doug and Dionne. Hence, creating Irvine and Roberts Vineyards.
