Hawks View Vineyard

Hawks View Vineyard is situated on the Chehalem Ridge in Washington County. First plantings were done in 1991, and rootstock plantings were done in late 1997/early 1998. The property was purchased, along with the adjacent Muirfield Vineyard, by the John Kemp family in 2002. Hawks View is managed by George Hillberry.

First added to the Raptor Ridge blend in vintage 2003, we enjoy the rich meaty plum and sun-dried tomato notes Hawks View supplies to our Reserve and Willamette Valley blends. Our winemaker was particularly interested in Hawks View fruit because it is farmed in Laurelwood soil, utilizing some of the same clones and rootstocks that we planted in our own Laurelwood-soil estate vineyard.
