A great look at a cross section of the vineyard soil. Our vineyard has typically 12″ to 24″ of topsoil with soft sedimentary rock beneath it. The sedimentary rocks, brought hear by the Missoula floods, are some of the oldest soils in the valley. These type of soils are typical of the Yamhill-Carlton AVA. The vine roots dig deep into the rocks looking for moisture and nutrients and produce the characteristic dark fruit and citrus notes found in all Saffron Fields’ wines.
For the month of April, we have partnered with two other wineries to offer complimentary tastings and club discounts at all three locations.
Each winery is located in the Yamhill-Carlton AVA. Despite all three wineries being located in and sourcing fruit from the same region, each offers their own interpretation of what makes this AVA so special.
Each tasting room is located 30 minutes (or less) from each other. Take a day and explore all three!
Each individual that visits all three tasting rooms will be entered into a raffle to win 1 of 3 magnums.
Every weekend through the winter we’ll be offering delicious slow cooked dishes, casseroles and stews created by our winery chef Ashley Bowers to pair with our current flight.
Rain is on the forecast for this weekend! Come get warm and dry with a glass of wine and a bowl of our one-pot meal: Slow roasted pork shoulder with apples, polenta and Willamette Valley Cheese Company’s aged gouda. Yum!
This meal is Gluten Free
$7 a serving
$5 dollars with the purchase of a glass of wine
We are delighted to add a beautiful new work, Flower Fields, to our art collection. Flower Fields was created by noted American artist James Surls for the Jewel Box space. Here is a short video introducing the piece.
Our annual celebration was back bigger and better than ever. A warm summer evening made it perfect Rose´ weather and the food trucks from Slick’s BBQ, Artisan Peacock and Scoop PDX made it the perfect evening to watch the spectacular fireworks show. This is an annual tradition that we love to host and mark your calendars for Sunday July 3rd 2016.

Several of my works focus on the Universe¹s hand coupled with the choices we make that bring us to where we are at this moment in time. I capture the energy of place, the economic boom and downturn, and explore the theme of man vs. nature. Recent travels abroad have especially impacted my work. Interested in the documentation of memory and place, I strive to find beauty in often overlooked structures and spaces. At times, commentaries on the changing environment and political or social references surface in the work.
