In the early 1860s, Oregon was in the midst of a gold rush. An old military road that ran through what is now the Bayliss family farm stretched from southern Oregon to Portland. A miner that was traveling to Portland with his hard-earned "poke" of gold decided to camp for the night at the top of what is now known as Ghost Hill. During the night, someone snuck into his camp, killed the miner and his horse, and stole his gold. To this day, the miner is said to wander the hill looking for his stolen gold.
Excellent wine starts with an excellent vineyard.The beautiful rolling hills made up of sedimentary Willakenzie series soils are perfect for the propagation of the hard to grow, but very rewarding, Pinot Noir grapes. Our continued effort is to produce delicious and elegant wines from the grapes grown in our estate vineyard.
The Bayliss-Bower Vineyard is part of the family'sÂ 234-acre section of land in the Yamhill-Carlton AVA. The first vines were planted in 1999. Currently, all 15 acres of vines are Pinot Noir of the following clones; Pommard, Wadenswil, and Dijon Clones 777, 114, and 115. The vineyard has been managed by Buddy Beck of Advanced Vineyard Systems, Inc.Â from the beginning. One hundred percent of the fruit used to produce the wines for Ghost Hill Cellars comes from this estate vineyard.Â We also sell fruit to a number of noted Willamette Valley wineries including Lange, Elk Cove and more.
