about lady hill winery
With Northwest roots going back five generations, family-owned Lady Hill Winery makes hand-crafted wines from grapes grown only at the region’s finest vineyards and by the most experienced winegrowers—no matter where they are in the Northwest. Wine grapes, after all, know no borders. Carefully fashioned with a love for the region, respect for the heritage of the land, and a commitment to preserve it for future generations, Lady Hill wines express the authentic spirit of the True Northwest.
Lady Hill wines are crafted by individuals, not manufactured by processes. Our pledge is to deliver delicious wines that are unique Northwest expressions of classic European varieties and blends and which reflect the individual qualities of each vineyard source. To fulfill this promise, Jerry Owen, winemaker Dan Duryee, and the Lady Hill Winery team carefully select each vineyard source and personally work with growers to make the best viticultural decisions for each vintage’s conditions.
Attentive winemaking ensures that every lot of hand-harvested grapes is individually vinified in slow, cool, small-batch fermentations and then matched to the best barrel type for its character. Rigorous tasting trials of all the barrels in the cellar result in final wines that are richly aromatic, texturally elegant, and which are true to their varietal character, blending style, and Northwest roots.
about jerry owen, proprietor
A wine industry pathfinder, fifth-generation farmer, and respected community leader, Jerry Owen brings passion, energy and management expertise to the creation of Lady Hill Winery and the Lady Hill wine brands. As the steward of his family farm—continuously farmed since his ancestors came to the land in the 1850s—and with an education that includes both agriculture science and literature, Jerry possesses an unusual sensitivity to both the economics and poetics of agrarian-based businesses and the responsibilities of being a steward to the land and its heritage.
In 1995 Jerry entered the wine business with the planting of his estate St. Columban Vineyard, followed in 1999 by co-founding Owen Roe Winery. Deeply involved in all aspects of managing winegrowing, fruit sourcing, and winery management, Jerry’s reputation for integrity, fairness, and energy has cemented extensive relationships with key growers and winemakers throughout the Northwest. Seeking to build on his experience with grapes from across the Northwest, and to honor his five-generation Oregon family heritage, Jerry founded Lady Hill in 2012 and built the Lady Hill Winery in 2013.
