Stellar Vineyard is a turn-key 9.75 +/- acre vineyard site located just west of Hwy 332/Sunnyside on Pleasant View Road, in Milton Freewater, Oregon. Just an irrigation ditch way from the official The Rocks District AVA, the land at the southern edge is cobblestoned and shares many of the fruit characteristics that the Rocks has become renown. In addition, the various micro-climates on this site offers winemakers the opportunity to produced nuanced wines that reflect both the earthy funk of The Rocks balanced with the cooler climate characteristics of the northern end of the property. This vineyard has provided excellent quality estate fruit for Otis Kenyon Winery and Stephenson Cellars since 2006 to high acclaim.
The property was originally planted in the late 1990s with 3 +/- acres Cabernet Sauvignon, 3 +/- acres of Syrah and 1 +/- acre of Merlot and includes 1 +/- acre of Gala apples.
Water rights are provided both through irrigation ditch and a 325 ft blue clay well (2008). The vineyard currently has an elevated irrigation system trellised over the vines. Winter precautions include a new propane wind machine (2013) and one older machine. However, this vineyard has buried canes since 2012 as the ultimate insurance against freeze.
Property employs a stable vineyard work force that would stay if the new owner desires.
Oregon EFU zoning permits the addition of a new structure on the site, to replace the old homestead still standing. Additionally, the property has a 800 +/- square foot storage building / garage.
