St Josef’s is a traditional Willamette Valley winery. Birding habitats include a large pond and bottomland riparian woods, and Bear Creek, which runs through the property. Scan for waterfowl and wading birds on the pond. Watch for Osprey and hawks overhead, and songbirds in the trees and edges. While you are welcome to bird from viewpoints around the edges of the grape-growing areas, to protect the health of the vines please do not walk into vineyards. This side of Bear Creek is where the native Molalla people trekked into Barlow for trading; visitors may see artifacts. A wine tasting room and gift shop are open 11 am to 5 pm except holidays and the month of January; on weekdays please phone ahead 503.651.3190.
