Brandborg Vineyard & Winery
Many successful people are do-it-yourselfers. So it was with Terry and Sue Brandborg. They are self-taught winemakers who have accumulated many awards and accolades for their wine.
Once the couple realized their passion, they searched for a cool, coastal climate terroir that would produce harmonious, distinct wines. Elkton, Oregon, 36 miles from the Pacific, fit the bill.
Forty vintages ago, they began with five acres of pinot noir and now have 50 acres of vines. Their spectacular property rises to 1100 feet with a direct sightline to the Umpqua River and the Oregon coast range. The region enjoys a very long, frost-free growing season, with cool temperate conditions lasting until late fall. The average high temperature is only 83F. All this results in grapes that can hang on the vine longer, developing truly complex flavors.
Brandborg Vineyard & Winery grows and produces distinct, elegant pinot noir and Alsace-inspired white wines with pure varietal expression. A stubborn focus on detail and a hands-on approach has resulted in harmonious wines made for the table, praised by customers and critics alike.
