R. Stuart Winery is Rob and Maria Stuart, and so much more. It’s the dedicated farmers who grow the fruit, it’s the cadre of people who work alongside us in our winery and tasting room, it’s the teams of sales people all over the country who carry a bag on their shoulder and tirelessly tell our story, it’s the devoted shop owner or somm who loves to introduce their customers to wines that will enlighten and charm them, and it’s the good people of the world who open a bottle of wine and embrace it all.
We buy fruit from a dozen different vineyards around the amazing Willamette Valley, some of which Rob has been working with for more than twenty years. Most are within 30 miles of our downtown winery. We work only with growers who share our value of high-quality, sustainable farming: take care of the earth, the fruit, and the people who tend it. Rob walks the vineyards often throughout the season. When it’s time to harvest, the grapes are brought to our winery where Rob and his merry band of cellar workers expertly craft them into wine.

Rob has been making wine for more than thirty vintages. His first love was Champagne, and of those beauties he’ll always be enamored. But man cannot live on sparkling alone, so there’s also Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris, Rosé and even “Port”- each engages his imagination in its own way, but none as much as Pinot Noir. The intrigue of this varietal never ceases to captivate him. Given the range of vineyards he works with, he has an almost endless variety of flavors and textures with which to create.
We make wines for every day and wines for special occasions. Whether it’s Tuesday night take-out or a Saturday night dinner party, your beloved’s birthday or Sunday afternoon with a good book, we’ve got a wine for that. Every R. Stuart wine tastes of its place – they are true to the nature of their vineyard’s terroir and the fruit it yields. With the winemaker’s signature gentle tannins, perfect balance of acid and fruit, and minimal new oak, the wines always work beautifully with food.
