David Hill Vineyards & Winery:
The Stoyanov's have owned the David Hill property since November 1992. We chose the name, David Hill, because we are on David Hill (hill), and on David Hill Road. David Hill was a real person.

The Stoyanov's have owned the David Hill property since November 1992. We chose the name, David Hill, because we are on David Hill (hill), and on David Hill Road. David Hill was a real person. Not only was the city of Hillsboro named for him, he was also chairman of a three-person committee who first oversaw the territorial government of Oregon, in effect, the first governor of Oregon before it became a state. In addition, Henry David, another pioneer, is remembered by the name of the hill and the road where our winery is located. The land was homesteaded in 1883 (it was then known as Rueter's Farm), and grapes were planted at that time. When prohibition came to Oregon in 1913 the grapes were mostly torn out (only a small number of vines were kept for personal use). In 1965 Charles Coury, along with a few other wine pioneers, came north from California to establish vineyards in the Willamette Valley where they believed they could successfully grow Pinot Noir. The property went through several hands until the Stoyanovs bought it in 1992. During 1993 and 1994 the house and winery buildings were extensively restored, while keeping the original exterior shape of the house. (The house is on the Washington County Historical Register.) The house, surrounding yard and gardens is the site for many events, including weddings, receptions of all kinds, corporate meetings, etc. At this time our vineyard is planted to Pinot Noir (50 %), Riesling (10 %), Pinot Gris (15 %), Chardonnay (10 %), Gewürztraminer (10 %), and miscellaneous varietals (5 %). We offer mostly estate wines. Read less
