ABOUT THE PRODUCERS: 

Harry Peterson-Nedry:
“Myers Briggs needs to create a new acronym for this man. A left-brain-meets-right if ever there was one, Harry Peterson-Nedry holds degrees in both chemistry and English. Harry’s interest in wine began innocently enough as a consumer passion, but soon developed into a consuming passion—one that was ultimately rooted in 1980, when he purchased land for what would grow to become the phenomenal Ridgecrest Vineyards.

His fledgling winery, Chehalem, allowed him to put into practice a hands-on, yet scientific approach to winemaking. A mini-generation removed from Oregon’s founding winegrowers, Harry was in a unique position to benefit from their successes and learn from their failures. He recently sold his interest in Chehalem in order to make wine solely from his favorite vineyard.”*

Wynne Peterson-Nedry:

“Wynne literally grew up on Ridgecrest Vineyards.

Just six months old when her parents purchased the property, Wynne followed in her father’s footsteps, but with remarkably different kicks. Chemistry degree? Check. English degree? No way. She straight-lined the wine bug with a master’s degree in oenology from UC Davis.

A worldview is immensely important to Wynne. She’s crewed and cellared in vineyards and wineries all over the world, from Burgundy to New Zealand. Wynne was head winemaker at Chehalem until 2018, when she decided to put her whole hand into the RR Wines fingerprint. She brings youth and cutting-edge technique to the table, the perfect foil to her dad’s deep
understanding of the vineyard he planted.”*

ABOUT THE VINEYARD:
“Ridgecrest was first planted in 1982 by Harry Peterson-Nedry, marking the first vineyard in what would be the famed Ribbon Ridge AVA. In 1988, Bill Stoller invested in Ridgecrest, setting a course for his entry into the Oregon wine industry. Today, Ridgecrest is divided across three distinct parcels. Chehalem retains a south-facing 29-acre parcel with 22-acres planted to vine.

Established in 2005, the Ribbon Ridge AVA is a small, 6.1 square mile ridge at the western end of the Chehalem Mountains AVA, rising 683 feet from the valley floor, giving it an island-like appearance. While the AVA is predominately Willakenzie soils, Ridgecrest features Wellsdale loam. With a moderate depth and solid water retention, Wellsdale is transition soil series exhibiting characteristics of both volcanic and sedimentary underlying structures.” (chehalemwines.com)
