Johan Vineyards

At Johan Vineyards, their goal is to create a self-sustained holistic farm system able to produce an honest interpretation of this philosophy for human experience. Located in Oregon’s Willamette Valley within the newly established Van Duzer Corridor AVA, terroir is the guiding force behind this wine-growing approach. Johan Vineyards believes this sense of place, the essence of their farm, is best expressed through their deep commitment to Biodynamic farming practices, native-yeast fermentation, and minimal intervention in the cellar. They see their entire farm as one living individuality that will showcase its own identity through the fruit it develops. Their goal is to understand and sustain the unity of this system in order to create original and compelling wines with a distinct sense of place. Rather than aiming for a preconceived style or formula, Johan Vineyards instead rely upon observation and instinct, embracing the unique expression of each vintage while always striving to craft wines with balance and energy. The vineyard and winery are certified Biodynamic, growing 15 varieties and producing a diverse array of wines from estate-grown grapes.
