Situated just outside of The Dalles, in the rolling hills of the Columbia Valley AVA, lies Dream Big Vista Vineyard, a 160± acre property ready for you to fulfill your dreams. With astounding views, beautiful landscapes, and one of Oregon’s most sought-after upcoming wine regions, this is a rare offering you don’t want to miss.
All the developments for a premier vineyard are here, including 151± acres of irrigation water rights (delivered via groundwater well) with mainlines installed, deer fencing, road infrastructure, 3-phase power, and a domestic well. Not to mention the excellent 50± acres of top-of-the-world potential build sites for an owner’s home, winery, tasting room, or whatever your dreams encompass (buyer to confirm with Wasco County on potential uses).
Of the 75± acres of prime south slope, 20± acres of vineyard were planted in 2006 and in production with drip lines and trellis. The remaining 55± acres of this prime south slope are ready for planting and ideal for an array of red winegrapes such as sangiovese, full-bodied pinot noir, syrah, tempranillo, and Bordeaux-blend varieties. With approximately 75± acres of north slope, 15± of these acres were planted in 2007 with drip lines and are ready to prune and train to wire, with the remaining 60± acres of north slope ready for additional winegrape planting. This north slope is excellent for high-quality aromatic whites such as pinot gris, chardonnay, sauvignon blanc, semillon, and Rhone whites. In addition, 12± acres are planted in blueberries with drip lines in place. All vineyards and blueberries have been farmed organically for the last four years.
An assessment in February 2023 by Dick Bouchey (available upon request), one of the leading viticulturists in the Pacific Northwest, concluded that Dream Big Vista Vineyard was a quality vineyard property with excellent groundwork in place, and low development costs for a new owner to acquire. With the hard work already done, it’s ready for you to take over, achieve your dreams, and develop this rare offering into your masterpiece. Winery, vineyard estate, family retreat, fruit orchard, or legacy property: the possibilities are endless. What are you waiting for?
