Dux Vineyard is owned by Mark and Laurie Stevens. Both are enthusiastic graduates of the University of Oregon, hence the name of the vineyard. They moved to the Bay Area where Mark pursued a career in architecture. You can see his style in the way he has transformed their farmhouse and the old cherry orchard into a lovely vineyard and charming abode. Mark and Laurie never want to have a huge vineyard, but instead focus only on the highest quality. That’s what lead them to this site Dundee Hills site, with is managed by Andy Humphrey, one of Oregon’s most renowned vineyard managers (Andy also manages the Weber Vineyard, by the way). The vineyard was planted in 2010 with a 60/40 blend of Wadenswil and Pommard clones on Jory soil.
