Nestled in the Southern Willamette Valley, Iris Vineyards produces world-class, award winning wines. The cool climate in the foothills of the Oregon Coastal Range allows the grapes to mature slowly while maintaining the proper acid balance that is essential for producing the finest Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris and Rosé. Playfully depicted on their logo as an “eye", the Greek principle of "Areté", or the idea of realizing one's fullest potential is applied to all of Iris' processes, from vine to wine!

Spring is a transitional season for wines. Our palates tend to prefer lighter wines in the spring and many people think this can only be accomplished by switching to white wine. Remember, it’s not the weather that dictates the wine so much as the food. You won’t want to miss our favorite new Oregon & French wine picks, perfect to kick off the coming warm, Spring weather and the barbeque season!
