25904 Green Peak Rd, Monroe, OR 97456 (Alpine Vineyards)

Presenting Alpine Vineyards, with 26 acres of vines and multiple varietals. Elevations range from 500′ to 640′ in the “inversion zone” of the Willamette Valley. Custom home once featured in “House Beautiful” magazine with 1565sf of deck to drink in the stunning vineyard & mountain views. 30×60 warehouse, designed to hold approx 15,000 cases. 24×48 tractor/implement shed. Spring on property with 1500 gallon holding tank + three wells for irrigation.

The vineyard encompasses 26 acres, including alleyways. The exact acreage is calculated by vine count (total 24.88 acres based on 807 vines/acre). Spacing is 6′ between vines & 9′ between rows. All vines are own rooted with the exception of approximately one-half an acre of AXR-1 rootstock that was planted in the middle block and grafted over to Pinot Noir. Soil type is primarily Jory with some Bellpine in the SE section of the middle block.
Clones of each varietal are as follows:

Pinot Noir: Pommard (source Dick Erath) Wadenswil (source Dick Erath) Upright Clone (source Philip Girardet) . . . Chardonnay: Davis 108 (source Dick Erath) Pinot Gris: (source Cooper Mountain) . . . Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc & Merlot: (source Dick Erath) . . . Pinot Franc & Pinot Meunier: (source Oregon State University Department of Horticulture)

The oldest vines planted in 1976 comprise the North Block (about 10 acres). The Middle Block was planted between 1978-1983 (also about 10 acres), and the South Block was planted in 1990 (about 6 acres). A block map is attached. Yields have ranged between 2-4 tons per acre on all varietals depending on thinning practices.

The vineyard is dry farmed with no irrigation or frost protection system. Average rainfall at this site is 44″ per year, and since we are in the “inversion zone” of the Willamette Valley (bottom of the vineyard is at 500′ and the top at 640′), we have never had frost damage.

Between 1980 and the early 1990’s, ALPINE VINEYARDS produced approximately 3,000 to 4,000 cases of wine annually from the 26 acre vineyard. During the early 1990’s they began selling some grapes and have transitioned to selling all of their fruit (with the exception of 1/2 ton per year that is made into wine in order to maintain winery licenses).

Water is an important consideration throughout the grape & wine industry. ALPINE VINEYARDS has a spring that was developed in 1976: water from that spring is pumped to a 1500 gallon underground holding tank, and water flows by gravity to the home/winery. This source has been adequate, but additional wells have been developed for use in the vineyard (spraying) and irrigation of gardens (three wells with outputs of 1gal/minute, 2 gal/minute & 10 gal/minute, with 2 pump houses).
