All the podcasts of the winery
Iris is nestled on an 870-acre estate in the foothills of the Oregon Coast Mountain Range at the south end of the Willamette Valley.
We produce world class, award winning Willamette Valley wines from our own grapes and from those we source from some of Oregon’s finest vineyards. Iris is built on the ancient Greek philosophy of Areté. This value exemplifies the idea of realizing one’s fullest potential and the continuous endeavor toward excellence.
The principle of Areté is applied in all of our processes, from vine to wine. Meticulous vineyard management ensures the best possible representation of the South Willamette Valley’s terroir is expressed in the grapes we produce. Our winemaker is intent on creating wines that are true, distinctive representations of the fruit from which they come.
We have great respect for our natural heritage and are careful stewards of the land and natural environment. This is Iris. This is Areté; playfully depicted on our logo as an “eye.” Iris is the essence of Oregon attitude. The proof is in the bottle.
