Cherry Hill Winery and Vineyard is a newly-constructed 12,000 square foot winery in Oregon’s Willamette Valley. The winery produces about 5,000 cases of estate-grown Pinot Noir each year from the 55-acre Cherry Hill Estate vineyard, planted in 1998 and 1999 to Pinot Noir. Mike & Jan Sweeney have spent many years and much effort seeking outstanding Pinot Noirs. They have pursued the holy grail of Pinot Noir in France, California, New Zealand and Oregon. In 1998, after several visits to the Willamette Valley of Oregon, they purchased the undeveloped 150-acre vineyard that is now the home of Cherry Hill Winery and Vineyard. After 16 years as an aircraft mechanic, Ken Cook realized a career change was in order. Ken's appreciation for wine brought him and his wife, Kerrie, all the way from Anchorage, Alaska to Oregon's Willamette Valley to begin a new life in the wine industry. He holds a degree in both winemaking and vineyard management and joined the team at Cherry Hill Winery in 2005. Ken's goal at Cherry Hill is to sustainably grow ripe and balanced fruit to produce pinot noir that represents the terroir of Cherry Hill vineyard in a minimal intervention wine production style.
