About Evening Land
At Evening Land Vineyards, we grow and vinify fine Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, and Gamay from our historic Seven Springs Estate Vineyard here in the Eola-Amity Hills.
Consistently producing some of the most distinguished wines to come out of Oregon, Seven Springs Vineyard was originally planted in 1983 and sits in the eastern Eola-Amity Hills. The vineyard is organically farmed and LIVE certified. The cooling winds from the Van Duzer corridor combined with the rocky, volcanic soils, eastern exposure, and old-vines imbue our wines with a finesse and strong sense of place.
The stewardship of Seven Springs rests in the hands of Rajat Parr and Sashi Moorman. Both came to winemaking through professional kitchens so understand the role of wine as an accompaniment and amplifier for memorable meals with great friends. They examine and explore the vineyard’s potential, isolating distinct blocks and experimenting with micro- cuvées in the heart of the Seven Springs hillside to produce distinct bottlings corresponding to specific vineyard blocks.
A glass-in-hand walk through storied Seven Springs Vineyard
As you turn left off the gravelly ascent of Lone Star Road you drive underneath the iconic avenue of Douglas fir as red volcanic earth and basalt boulders herald your arrival to Seven Springs. Meet us at the overlook simply outfitted with picnic tables and a chiminea. You’re welcomed with a spread of local cheeses, charcuterie and the full flight of Evening Land’s Seven Springs Pinot Noir, Gamay & Chardonnay. As you sip you’ll look east over our oldest vines, then further across the Willamette Valley to the Cascade Range. If the air is clear, views of snow-capped Mt. Hood, Mt Adams, Mt. Ranier, and Mt. Jefferson will compete for your attention with the screech of hawks overhead.
