The Land

Excellent wine starts in a remarkable vineyard. The resplendent, rolling hills made up of Willakenzie series soils with marine sediment bedrock are perfect for the propagation of the diificult to grow, but very rewarding, Pinot Noir grape. We strive to produce delicious, elegant wines from the grapes grown in our estate vineyard.

The Bayliss-Bower Vineyard is part of the family's 234 acre section of land in the Yamhill-Carlton District.  The Bayliss family has owned the farm since 1906. The first vines were planted in 1999. Currently, all 16 acres of vines are Pinot Noir of the Pommard, Wadenswil, and Dijon clones 114, 115, 777.  One hundred percent of the fruit used to produce the wines for Ghost Hill Cellars comes from the estate vineyard.  We only use about 1/3rd of our grapes, the rest of our grapes are sold to local wineries.

Ghost Hill Cellars is LIVE (Low Input Vineyard and Enology) certified. LIVE is an internationally recognized standard for sustainable viticulture practices in wine grape production. Ghost Hill Cellars is also SALMON-SAFE, dedicated to restoring and maintaining healthy watersheds.
