Helvetia Vineyards and Winery

Search Hillsboro Oregon

The slopes range from 500 to 750 feet in elevation and the soils are Cascade, a sedimentary clay loam. In 1987 they made their first wine. And, in 1989 they started selling grapes to home winemakers.

From 1992-1995 they custom-crushed their grapes at Laurel Ridge Winery under the Helvetia Vineyards label and opened their own winery in October 1996.

Last year they purchased the adjoining Jacob Yungen property with its 100 year old house to use the grounds as a visitors center for wine tastings and other events as well as Christmas tree sales.

Helvetia winery makes Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris, and Chardonnay wines. Pinot Noir is the Helvetia Vineyards flagship. It is rich, smooth, full-bodied, complex and well-balanced, with a deep vein of cherry and a flavor that lingers on the palate. It's primary clonal variety is pommard.
