Creativity and inspiration often go without words. They are expressed with shapes, colours, materials, sensitivities, tastes and sounds. Here they take the form of the Rose, the universal symbol of Love. A true work of art, the Cote des Roses bottle conveys French elegance. It is a blossoming of fruity and complex flavours, a fresh nose in a remarkable bottle, an unforgettable experience. Cote des Roses, wines made in France, under the southern sun, with love.
Poised atop the Dundee Hills, with gentle slopes that capture the breezes and sunshine, our 235-acre estate overlooking the Willamette Valley produces some of the finest Pinot Noir and Chardonnay fruit in the world. Our densely planted vines are farmed sustainably, L.I.V.E. certified, and tended to by hand when leaves and fruit are thinned; harvesting is also done entirely by hand.
When Fess Parker purchased the 714-acre Foxen Canyon Ranch in 1988, he planned to run cattle, plant a few acres of vineyard, and perhaps, someday, establish a small winery. His dream was to start a family business that he could pass on to future generations. Eli Parker and his sister Ashley Parker Snider are now the stewards of their father’s vision for the family portfolio of businesses. Eli and Ashley work closely with Winery President, Tim Snider and their children, Spencer Shull and Greer Shull.
In the late 18th century, our great-great-great grandfather was deeded the land on which our winery sits. Fast forward six generations and we’re still on the family farm. In 1984, Henry’s concord and Niagara grapevines were replaced with old world vinifera grapes. At the time, we were one of only a few Niagara wineries to make premium wines from our own grapes. In 1988, the winery helps found the Vintners Quality Alliance (VQA) with a handful of other Niagara wineries.
