Sylvanus Estate - A Place Like No Other

The Vineyard & Site

Sylvanus Estate is a small family vineyard located in the Yamhill-Carlton AVA of Oregon’s Willamette Valley.  It is the only vineyard situated in the unique microclimate of stunning Moores Valley.


Our Story

Sixth and seventh generation Texans Lisa McDonald and Christian Eddleman went in search of the best place to literally put down roots, in the form of grapevines. Loving the beauty and challenge of pinot noir, it was clear they'd have to head west.

Our Name & Valley History

Sylvanus means “Of The Forest” in Latin, and is surrounded on three sides by Oregon firs. The western side of the property opens to the panorama of Moores Valley below and the foothills of the Coast Range beyond.
