It Started With Good Friends
An idea took root fifteen years ago after a conversation among friends Antony Beck and Ken Wright about the potential for Yamhill-Carlton wines. The Beck family, long rooted in the South African wine industry, welcomed the opportunity to steward a very unique and storied place in Oregon’s wine history. Antony established the estate in honor of his wife, Angela with the goal of creating a warm, casual gathering place centered around wine and hospitality in the Willamette Valley.
We shine light on the connections and conversations we value from friends and partners in our community committed to best in craft.
Guided by good, we farm the land responsibly and sustainably and harness age old winemaking principles to craft wines that appeal today.
Aligned in our values, and with a diversity of experiences, we are joined together with a shared passion for creating a new wine culture.
