The Story family founded the Heritage Estate in 2003. Through a combination of care and toil, we’ve slowly grown into one of the largest contiguous vineyards in the Willamette valley.
We carefully tend each vine to create our award-winning wines with an authentic sense of place. At Heritage we put all of our love into the land. In the early years we focused on vineyard development and landscaping.
