On a recent trip to the Willamette Valley for wine tasting, Archery Summit was our final stop on a long day of tastings, and we came very close to canceling the appointment because we were getting a bit tired of wine. However, I’m really glad we still decided to stop at Archery Summit, because it was a wonderful experience and featured some of the best wine we tried throughout our trip to the area.

We were very impressed when we entered the building and were immediately escorted through Archery Summit’s underground wine caves built into a hill, which are definitely a unique feature among wineries in the Willamette Valley. After walking through the caves, we were taken to our table that was in the tank room, which was also a fun setting for a wine tasting. Just the whole setup of it made us engaged and interested from the start.

From there, the tasting proceeded very nicely, and I was happy to see that the standard tasting was all pinot noirs. I know wineries like to mix in other things, usually starting with a throwaway chardonnay. However, since everyone is really there for the pinot noirs in the Willamette Valley, it was nice to focus on those for the whole tasting. All of the pinots we tried were quite good and high end, but the ones that stood out to us were the Shea Vineyard pinot noir and the Summit Vineyard pinot noir, which we made sure to take home.

Throughout the tasting, in addition to the wines just being great, our host definitely contributed to making it such a positive experience. He was very friendly the entire time, and clearly just loves showcasing the Archery Summit portfolio of wines and telling guests more about them. I felt like we got a really great introduction to Archery Summit wines and the Willamette Valley itself. He also gave us an extra pour of pinot gris at the end, which was a really nice palate cleanser, which I much preferred having at the end of the tasting, rather than the beginning.

I only have very positive things to say about the tasting experience at Archery Summit. Having already been to multiple other wineries that day before reaching Archery Summit, our tastebuds were a little shot by the time we arrived, but the winery’s excellent pinot noirs still managed to stand out and impress us. The wines are pricey, but there is great quality behind it, which makes the cost well worth it. Our host also just provided such great, friendly service throughout the experience, which made us so glad to have stopped here. Archery Summit would definitely be at the top of our list for our next trip to the area.

Tasting experience was top notch (once the very loud group next to us left). Our “hostess” was extremely knowledgeable and friendly. Tasting in the caves was fun (and a welcome break from the heat) but the downside is the echo so, depending on how loud you adjacent groups are, it can be hard to hear!!!! I suggest shooting them dirty looks so they leave. Our hostess knew how annoyed we were so she slowed down our tasting and hurried them up (they were pretty well done) so we finally got some peace and quiet!!!

We joined the wine club so we’ll be able to enjoy for many years! Cheers

Have been coming to this winery since its opening and its innovative techniques with winemaking. The wine cave and vineyard tours are great and the winemaker is amazing!.. The staff is extremely knowledgeable and patient with questions and sharing their expertise. Have been a club member and their events are outstanding, an excellent value besides fun. Love their sister winery events with California and Washington too! During Covid they were the best and so respectful to members and their guests and now things are back to normal.

We recently stopped by Archery Summit as part of a long day of tastings. The winery is on a high hill with breathtaking views, and the wine cave is even more impressive. We had a private tasting in the cave, and we were seated off to the side with our own little table. The server was very attentive and even brought a blanket for the cool air.

Unfortunately I was already burned out from tasting way too much wine. Good advice would be to schedule your tasting earlier in the day so that you can maximize the experience. Also there was a "false alarm" with a smoke detector that went off in the cave, forcing all of us to evacuate and continue the tasting outside on the patio.

I would definitely visit here again and give all of the Archery Summit wines another round of tasting.

I previously awarded 5 stars but two recent visits and home experience with wines I have held cause me to downgrade. 3.5* is my actual rating - just better than average.

They are still a lovely tour and have very nice staff. I have many AS wines at home and have had little to no development of the wines under strict, proper cellaring conditions. I have stopped buying their wines as they do not develop with aging.

I have also stopped buying their wines as they have evolved to a more commercial Carneros-CA style wine on release. This to me is unattractive and not worth purchasing or holding for my taste.

winesMy wife and I sampled Archery Summits' Pinot Noir wines at our daughters home (she's a member of the winery). We were impressed with the wine and next day visited the winery. We enjoyed the scenic setting however enjoyed the wine tasting, knowledgeable and friendly service even more. We became members (April 2021) immediately. The winery staff has worked effectively to assure safe delivery of our shipments.

First off, Natasha was wonderful and gave us a great experience. We were disappointed in the cost of the tasting fee ($50/person) and that in order to have the tasting waived, you had to become a Club Member. The prices seem a bit outrageous, especially in comparison to other wineries in the valley. While the wine is lovely, we didn't find it good enough to suggest the costs. Disappointing to see that a long time Oregon winery is charging Napa prices.

My wife and I were club members at Archery Summit several years ago. As with most of our club memberships, we collect more bottles of wine than we consume thus we change memberships to keep a well rounded cellar of wines. A month ago, we decided to revisit Archery Summit after enjoying a 2007 Arcus, one of our last remaining bottles in the cellar. We happily rejoined as members and the welcome back we received was fantastic. Yesterday, we enjoyed another tasting visit - orchestrated by Leah, we sampled a number of wines that reminded us again, how wonderful a great Pinot Noir from the Dundee Hills can be. Those like Archery Summit elevate this wonderful fruit to extraordinary levels.

Jarrod was our wine host. He was knowledgeable of the area and of course of the excellent selection of wines that we sampled. Archery Summit was one of the highlights of our trip to the Willamette Valley. We joined the wine club because of the excellent experience and great wine
