A family history with a vineyard

Al and Esther Bojanower met and were married in Portland, Oregon at the beginning of the Great Depression; Esther a teacher and Al an engineer. They lived frugally through the years and were eventually transferred to southern California in the late 1930’s. Al started a successful business after WWII, while Esther raised their two children; Audrey and Paul. Despite their growing success in family and business, both Al and Esther yearned to return to their roots in the Willamette Valley. 

In 2005 Paul directed the development of the farm into the vineyard we have today, which is now managed by his eldest daughter, Kathy.



Our vineyard is tucked away in Sherwood, OR, perched on a secluded hill, away from the noise and stress of the city.


Tucked away in the trees we have the original farm house, a small artist studio, as well as our century old cabin.


Mt. Hood, Mt. Saint Helens and Mt. Jefferson are all visible from the peak of the hill, as well as some lovely birds.
