Open: Thanksgiving Weekend, Memorial Day Weekend
Great vineyards are not just about grapes and vine. They are also about emotion and memory. They are about special events in places that leave impressions in our hearts. That is what a great vineyard is all about.Â
Kathken Vineyards is a quiet, secluded 51 acre vineyard in the fir covered Eola Hills, just 7 miles west of Salem. The site is at 700 ft to 900 ft with a south west exposure. We have 40 acres in producing vines, 34 acres of Pinot Noir (various clones but predominately Pommard and Wad-ensvil) and 6 acres of Pinot Gris. All plants are on a Geneva Double Curtain or a Carbonneau"Open Lyre" trellis system, which is high maintenance but, coupled with our elevation, makes for optimum production and quality. Ken and Kathy Slusser are the owners, managers and working staff of the vineyard and the Bella Vista tasting room.
