David Hill Vineyard, located in Forest Grove Oregon, is one of the oldest vineyards in Oregon started by David Lett and Charles Coury in 1965. What makes David Hill Vineyard special is the unique variety of vines they have planted including Sylvaner, Müller Thurgau and Chasselas (with 50+ year old vines). Charles Coury was known for sneaking vine cuttings from Alsace back to Oregon in his suitcase.
