Mae's Vineyard

Applegate Valley

We know of few people who work harder than Herb Quady, one of the cornerstone growers on whom we rely to provide us with the best raw materials for our wines. He grows several varietals on his ranch in southern Oregon. The beautiful Mae's vineyard is a gently rounded hillside arcing from southeast to south-southwest and framed by the rugged, conifer-covered slopes of the Siskiyou mountains. The soils are mostly granitic bedrock and decomposed basalt dotted with, of all things, chunks of quartz!

This is idyllic, rural wine country, the hills and valleys speckled with small farms here and there, interspersed with winding little rivers and bubbling creeks. The foliage is aromatic with evergreen, eucalyptus, and madrone trees breaking up the pastures and becoming more dense near the tops of the mountains. Ground elevation is about 1,200 - 1,600 feet. So even as the days are hot, the nights always cool off, usually under clear, starry skies in the summer. 

Wines from Mae's Vineyard

When life gives you smoke taint, you make rosé. The 2018 vintage was a tough one for our growers down south, but as we often do, we found a way to salvage success out of a bad hand from Mother Nature.
