Kramer Vineyards

Kramer Vineyards is a two-generation family business offering delightful wines of high quality, terrific value and variety.  For nearly 30 years, we’ve been growing wine from our 20-acre, sustainably farmed estate vineyard in the Yamhill-Carlton AVA.  We serve our wines with a warm, inviting approach and we look forward to meeting you at our charming tasting room in Gaston, our new Carlton Tasting room, or on-line.  A favorite place to picnic, our tasting room is comfortable and friendly.  Our greeting dogs will greet you enthusiastically.  For wine enthusiasts seeking an authentic Oregon wine experience, only Kramer Vineyards combines a 30-year family stewardship winegrowing history with an inviting atmosphere, serving a delightful variety of wines.  We produce two kinds of sparkling wines and plan to increase our production in the future.  Three Kramers work full time at the winery forming a winemaking team. They are often available to discuss their wines.  Our wines are available in Oregon (no distribution out of Oregon) and we ship to many out-of-state customers. 

Year planted: 
1984 to present
Soil classifications are peavine in the two main vineyards with willakenzie in the forested areas. Elevation is 550 to 805 feet. Facing primarily south, our largest planting is Pinot Noir with 6 clones. We have three reserve blocks. Our Rebecca's vineyard is a unique spacing of four rows planted 4 x 4 with a ten foot tractor break in between. Our Heritage block is 3 rows of 5 x 5 with our oldest vines (all Pommard) on the outside and relatively new Dijon 115 Clone in the middle row. Cardiac Hill is a very steep pinot noir vineyard. Most of our vines were planted before 1994 so are considered mature. Keith Kramer is the vineyard manager.
