The Lachini Family (pronounced: LA-KEEN-E) believes that the vineyard is the wine. Our family-owned Estate winery and vineyard, farmed rigorously through Biodynamic practices, is located on the backdrop of the Chehalem Mountains in the heart of the Oregon’s North Willamette Valley.The 45 acre Lachini Estate Vineyard is located approximately 30 miles southwest of Portland. The south-facing gently-sloped terrain sets in the outlying foothills of Newberg, and is a part of the Chehalem Mountains A.V.A.
Ron and Marianne purchased the property in 1998 and planted the first five acres with Pinot Noir (Pommard clone) in June of 1999 after clearing and natural site preparation. In the following seven growing seasons, we planted additional blocks that now entail just over 30.5 acres of planted Pinot Noir plus an additional one and a half acres of Chardonnay.
