30088 SW Egger Rd. Hillsboro, OR

Beran Vineyard and Winery ranks among the pioneer properties in the Willamette Valley. A portion of the vineyard was planted in 1972, by then-owner John Hiestand,  from cuttings from Dick Erath’s new vineyard in the Dundee Hills. This was the same year that Erath produced the first commercial wine made in the Dundee Hills.

The original, 1972 block contains 256 vines on a Scott Henry trellis. These are Wädenswil  clone on their own roots. This block produces two BBLS of wine per year, and has a distinct cinnamon  character according to The Berans.

The large block was planted in 1979 by Bill Beran to Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, and White Riesling. The whites were subsequently grafted over to Pinot Noir. The clones in this block are Pommard and Dijon 115.  This block is trained to V.S.P. trellising.  Total planted area is 7.25 acres.

The property was originally homesteaded in 1875 By John McFee, namesake of McFee Creek that run nearby. Rudy Lorenz was 19 years old when he bought the property in 1933. Lorenz built the classically styled barn in  1941 which has been converted by the Berans to a winery with a capacity of approximately 2000 cases/ year. There is a beautiful, historic, 2700 foot home originally built in 1910, and updated nicely over the years.

AF-5 zoning allows for a division of the property to create one additional 5 acre home site if desired. Sale is subject to sellers lease back on the home for a negotiable period of time to find another home.

This is one of the most charming and picturesque winery properties in the area, and it has quite a story to tell as well.
