Duck Pond Cellars
Despite its status as one of the larger wine producers in Oregon, Duck Pond Cellars remains small at heart and is a family-owned winery through and through. Originally from California’s Central Valley, lifelong farmers Doug and Jo Ann Fries moved their young family to the small Central Oregon town of Sunriver in the early 1980s. In 1984, they purchased property along the banks of the Willamette River in Dundee, Oregon, where they planted a 500-acre hazelnut orchard.

Cuvaison Estate Wines is a family-owned Napa Valley estate vintner. We strive to consistently produce ultra-premium, hand-crafted wines that reflect the finest attributes of each vintage and capture the uniqueness of our two estates, Carneros for Cuvaison and Mount Veeder for Brandlin.
Established in 1969, Cuvaison produces Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grown exclusively on its estate vineyard in the heart of the world-renown region of Carneros in Napa Valley. Cooled by fog from the San Pablo Bay, the rolling hills of this certified sustainable estate has produced distinctive Chardonnay and Pinot Noir for 35 years. Dedicated to a philosophy of producing vineyard-driven wines, Cuvaison employs block by block farming methods and a hand-crafted vineyard-to-bottle winemaking approach. The resulting wines are balanced and complex, showcasing the distinctive characteristics of this cool climate estate.
Brandlin is a Napa Valley estate that produces wine from a small, historic vineyard in the Mount Veeder appellation. Overlooking Napa Valley from its 1,200 foot perch, the estate is planted to 38 acres of Bordeaux varieties. These sustainably farmed, low yielding vines produce intensely concentrated grapes, resulting in wines that eloquently express this rare and rugged mountain site. The wines pay homage to the Brandlin family, which began farming wine grapes on Mount Veeder in the 1870’s and established the Brandlin Vineyard in 1926. In 1998 Cuvaison Estate Wines was honored by the Brandlin family with rights to purchase Brandlin Vineyard. Today, we remain dedicated to maintaining the original ten acres of old vine Zinfandel and continuing the family’s tradition of nurturing and farming the vineyard by hand.
Salzl Seewinkelhof Winery
Typically for this region are the endless seeming lowlands with its lakes and varnishes. Well-balanced, harmonic and without edges that is how the region and also the character of the wines are presenting themselves.
In favor of the climatic assets of our region we produce self-contained, fruity wines which are reflecting the terroir of our vineyards. The distinctive silence and wideness of the lowland finds its expression in the softness of our wines.
The winery got managed as a family business for decades. Today three generations are working side by side at the winery. Everyone that works in our winery shares the ambition to develop quality to the maximum.
