Colene Clemens was founded in 2005 by Joe and Victoria Stark and named in honor of Victoria’s mother. Spanning 122 acres where the Chehalem Mountains converge with Ribbon Ridge, this rocky, south-facing estate contains both marine sedimentary and volcanic basalt soils. Elevation climbs from 350 to 650 feet, where the winery perches with sweeping views of the Coast Range and Valley. A total of 62 acres are planted to Pinot noir and Chardonnay.
Winemaker and vineyard manager Stephen Goff has been dedicated to the development and planting of the vineyard as well as the production of our wines since the first vintage in 2008. The vineyard is completely dry-farmed, and we take a pragmatic approach to viticulture: we use sustainable and organic processes whenever possible.
Reservations are highly encouraged, particularly on weekends. Walk-ins will be accommodated as space allows. We look forward to hosting you!
