As guests arrive to Beaux Frères, it becomes immediately evident that this place is first and foremost a farm – a family of pigs run along the side of the driveway, a converted barn houses the thirty-year old winery, a firetruck used for water distribution sits amidst a swath of old Oregon oak trees, and a handful of winery dogs lay, rain or shine, on the crush pad to greet you.Much of the farm remains the same from when it was founded by Michael Etzel and his brother-in-law, Robert Parker, in 1988, with their first vintage released in 1992. Beaux Frères approach to farming the 26-acre vineyard and 9-acre Upper Terrace vineyard is guided by holistic, sustainable principles and they aim to make wines that are based on minimal intervention and a shared intuition with the land.

Nice Tasting Room Experience
Beaux Frères is a nice, rustic throwback to an era when over the top tasting rooms didn’t exist. This one is an extension of the winery with lots of stools and benches and it’s nice to see the winery in full swing. Great wines and a nice morning.
Just visited and really loved the wines and the laid back atmosphere. Peter did our tasting and he was an excellent host.
Great information and great hospitality
Enjoyed winetasting here with Jillian who provided us with a wonderful background of the Vineyard. our flight listing included a special welcome to our party. This was a great touch. We were celebrating a special birthday and were treated like royalty.
Small vineyard with tasty pinot niors
This was the first stop on our tour for wine tasting for the day. I wished it was our last because I wanted to savor it for a longer period of time. Excellent pinot niors! We tasted a chardonnay that surprised us that was very good too. This is rustic small vineyard specializing in small batch wine production.
This is a neat place as it is right on the farm with the vineyard back behind the farm. The wine is good but we thought it was overpriced for what you get.
