Raptor Ridge Pinot noir ages in French oak and is racked in synchrony with the dark of the moon. Raptor Ridge Pinot gris is made in a refreshing Alsacian style. Raptor Ridge shares a 27-acre estate with families of Raptors — birds of prey such as Red-tailed Hawks, Kestrels, Sharp-Shinned Hawks and Owls. We are located on the northeast side of the Chehalem Mountains, 10 miles north of Newberg, Oregon. « less

Had tasted their pinot noir a couple of years ago and made a visit to the winery a high priority during a recent trip to Oregon. Leslie was a wonderful "host" - answered all of our questions and gave us some great tips on lunch and some other local attractions. The views were wonderful. Oh yeah, the wines... very, very...

Hands down the winery that inpressed me the most during my weeklong visit to Willamette Valley. The Pinot noirs had great balance making them enjoyable from the first sip but never boring. These wines had the complexity of a good mystery novel - the type that makes you stay up way past bedtime the reach the end. My kudos for... More

Nice views and soaring hawks make this a relaxing place to visit. None of that would matter much if the wine wasn't good. Fortunately, it is quite good, especially the Pinots.

This place is amazing. Wines are wonderful and the staff is very knowledgeable. Views on a clear day of 5 mountains. Very easy to find.

My first visit to Raptor Ridge just happened to coincide with their Grand Opening. We were invited guests by our friends from Beaverton. Having read the book, "Sideways," and having tried several California Pinots (and not being very impressed), I visited Raptor Ridge with a jaundiced eye. After a few tastes, I fell in love with the 2007 Raptor Ridge... More

I wasn't super impressed with the wines and I really didn't care for the lady in the tasting room. Then after we opened the bottle of wine, it was corked. I KNOW that wines will be corked every now and then - that's NOT a comment on the quality of the wines here at all!!!! BUT when I called to... More

It's a little difficult to get to, but once there it's so gorgeous overlooking the Willamette Valley. And good wine on top of it. Can't get any better
