Music will typically run from 1 – 4 pm. We offer a covered patio with table and chair seating for about 125 patrons. On busy days it may be a good idea to bring your own lawn chairs.

In addition to our wines we are pleased to offer soft drinks, Oregon Craft Brews, and food truck service from Firepit Wandering Kitchen.
Take a look at our upcoming schedule and plan a special day out near the river. We also offer a Bocce ball court, horse shoes and you just might want to take a nice stroll right out to the river’s edge. Camping in the vineyard is also available – learn more here
July 26th, 2020 – Rich Layton & Tough Town
Rich Layton & Tough Town are keepers of the flame for American roots music. It’s high octane swamp rock, country, rockabilly and the honky-tonk blues echoing from an East Texas roadhouse. The band has a signature sound that sits right alongside such eclectic artists as Marty Stuart, Dave Alvin and Lukas Nelson. Each set takes audiences for a ride from Sun Studios to Chess Records, and Muscle Shoals to Bakersfield. Rich’s original songs fit seamlessly into the mix, weaving his Gulf Coast roots through tales of rock and roll redemption, harmonica-fueled and swampified.
Together over a decade now, the band has released three albums and received multiple local awards while performing regularly at major festivals and showcase clubs throughout the Northwest. Each year, Rich joins Lyle Lovett as a special guest when Lyle tours the NW. Rich also has played on Portland tour stops by long-time friends Lucinda Williams, Dale Watson, Buckwheat Zydeco (R.I.P.) and more.
WOW!! What a show!! The opening act [for Junior Brown] was Portland’s Rich Layton. His set was filled with rompin’, partyin’ roadhouse roots rock at its best.
