From small-scale hobby to major career endeavor, Harry Peterson-Nedry has taken his winemaking from one end of the spectrum to the other. In 1980, he made his first move, planting 37-acre Ridgecrest Vineyards in Oregon's new Ribbon Ridge AVA. A decade later, he took another major step, founding Chehalem with partners Bill and Cathy Stoller (owners of Stoller Vineyards) and expanding his estate holdings over the course of the next five years. Peterson-Nedry actively applies his degree in Chemistry to his winemaking, experimenting and tinkering with different variables on his fruit every vintage to produce consistently high quality wine. All fruit is estate-grown; reds include Pinot Noir and a bit of Gamay and the whites are Pinot Gris, Chardonnay, Riesling, and Pinot Blanc.
