WHEN YOU TRY OUR WINE, YOU ARE FAMILY
Earth Song Vineyard is planted in the picturesque, meandering river valley of Deer Creek in Selma, Oregon which at one time was known as Dryden. Dryden was established in 1892 when the Chinese and other gold miners built a post office to communicate with better ease. Many of the buildings in this small town were built by using the abandoned river dredge left behind by the miners, including the school house and the community building that is still standing today. The soil that was dredged from the ancient riverbed has been used to help with the growth of our tasty grapes.>
Just over 20 years ago our small vineyard was planted in this riverbed. Our vines made the journey from Pommard and Colmar, France to be raised in the gravely loam soil of Southern Oregon. Our family then took over the established, somewhat forgotten vineyard in 2015 adding to it our tender loving care to bring the vines back to life. We had no experience, but with the help of local viticulturists and many, many long hours we have learned a lot and continue to learn each year.
At Earth Song Vineyards the whole family pitches in from the kids to great grandma, whether it is laying the canes, canopy management, scrubbing out the grape bins, hand harvesting the grapes, or driving the tractors. The close attention to the little details shows within the beautiful fruit each year. We feel as though the hard work and dedication to our vines is conveyed in each and every bottle we produce, and that our passion and love as a family can be tasted in our wines. We hope that you enjoy them as much as we do!
