January Wine Specials, Lange Estate Winery & Vineyard

january in the glass

Founded in Oregon’s Dundee Hills in 1987, this family-owned winery is considered one of the trailblazing establishments of Oregon’s wine industry. 

In 1986, Don and Wendy Lange began searching for the best place to grow their favorite grape varietals. After trying bottles from Eyrie and Erath, the Langes traveled north from Santa Barbara to scout land and begin their estate in the Dundee Hills. In 1987, the Langes first vintage of Oregon wine was in the works, their vineyard was planted, and they opened their home for direct sales. Through the decades they have increased their distribution and production, acquired new vineyard land, and built a second barrel room and a space for elevated tastings. They have continued their legacy as a family-owned and managed vineyard focusing on artisanal winemaking, creating exceptional wines that achieve nuances of fruit with structure, balance, and texture.
