On the Farm

The farmland where Stoller Family Estate currently lies has been in the Stoller family since the 1940s when Bill Stoller’s father and uncle purchased the property to raise turkeys.  Throughout the decades that followed, the farm grew from a small family operation into one of Oregon’s largest.  When the farm ceased its operations in 1993, Bill seized the opportunity to acquire the land, realizing that its sloped, rocky terrain would be ideally suited for a world-class vineyard.

Your group of six will enjoy a two night stay at this legacy farmland in Stoller Family Estate’s newly renovated Farm House.  During your stay, you’ll be treated to a private dinner in the Farm House’s gourmet kitchen, as well as a picnic lunch and private wine tasting.

Package Includes:

  • Two nights’ accommodations for six people at Stoller Family Estate’s Farm House
  • Private dinner for six people at the Farm House during your stay
  • Picnic lunch and private wine tasting for six people

Package Notes:  Dates subject to availability.
