Joel and Laurie, the 'J' and the 'L' in J.L. Kiff Vineyard, farm and produce Pinot Noir (and more) on a hillside just outside McMinnville and not too far from Carlton. The vineyard is 9 acres. Our winery is a converted pole barn, which is where you can come to taste the wine, too. We are very much a 'do-it-yourself' operation… you will not find fancy decor, but the wine is intriguing and you will be served by the people who grow the grapes and make the wine.
J.L. Kiff Vineyard is the closest estate winery to McMinnville, Oregon.
