High Pass Winery

High Pass Vineyard

Dieter Boehm is the winemaker at High Pass Winery. He founded High Pass Vineyard in 1984 on a 20 acre parcel of land west of Junction City, Oregon. Vines were planted in 1985 and a few years later he started harvesting some of the premium wine grapes that have gained Oregon international acclaim. Dieter found the local wineries willing buyers of his early crops, but he always made sure there were enough grapes left for him to learn about winemaking.

High Pass Winery's first commercial crush occurred in 1994 at Broadley Vineyards. One year later, the modest facilities at High Pass were licensed and the first crush took place with Dieter Boehm at the helm!

High Pass Winery uses grapes from three vineyards:

High Pass Vineyard
Priddy Vineyard, and
Walnut Ridge Vineyard

All vineyards are near the winery site and are managed by the winemaker. Elevation ranges from 450 to 750 feet with Bellpine the predominant soil. Vine spacing is 5 X 7 feet, representing a modern European viticulture approach, yielding high quality wines at attractive prices.
