Our Wines

Using fruit from our various vineyard sites throughout the Northwest, our family has been producing hand-crafted wines using traditional winemaking techniques for nearly 25 years. You’ll find wines from our two labels--Duck Pond Cellars and Desert Wind Winery--distributed throughout the country and in select markets internationally. We also offer limited-production wines to customers via our Duck Pond and Desert Wind tasting rooms and our online wine shop.
Established in 1993, Duck Pond’s production focuses primarily on Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris and Chardonnay. We also produce small bottlings of other Oregon wines including Pinot Blanc and Gamay Noir.
Launched in 2001, the Desert Wind brand showcases full-bodied red wines from Washington State, including Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and our flagshipred blend called Ruah. Limited production Desert Wind bottlings include Viognier, Riesling, Malbec, Tempranillo, Syrah, Barbera, Sangiovese and a Port-style dessert wine called La Puerta.
