Shea Vineyard consists of 200 acres in theYamhill-Carlton AVA. Sedimentary soils over fractured sandstone provide theplatform for vines that are managed with the utmost care. At Shea Vineyard, management is based onscientific analysis and is in alignment with sustainable farming proponents. Infact, the USDA’s recently created Conservation Security Program, which is aimedat identifying “farmers and ranchers that are meeting the highest standards ofconservation and environmental management,” found Shea Vineyard to be in the very top tier of applicants; an honor reserved for just 32 out of 500.
SheaWine Cellars was founded in 1996. The 7000 square foot winery was built on-siteat the vineyard. Today Winemaker Drew Voit crafts several Pinot Noir bottlings as well as a Chardonnay. Shea Wine Cellars currently produces wine from approximately 25% of the vineyard’s yield. The balance is and has been sold toa veritable who’s who of Pinot Noir producers; Beaux Freres, Bergstrom, KenWright, St. Innocent, Penner-Ash, Antica Terra, and Broadley to name a few. Pinot Noir made from Dick Shea’s fruit has more than once scored the highes trating Robert Parker Jr.’s Wine Advocate has ever given to an Oregon PinotNoir. Critics across the board have had great things to say about the wines produced at Shea Wine Cellars. Wine Spectator has published articles on both the vineyard and the winery. One needs only look at the track record to understand the anticipation of great wines from Shea Cellars in the future.
