- Other info: Ken and Grace Evenstad founded Domaine Serene Vineyards and Winery in 1989 when they purchased 42 acres of just-logged land in the Dundee Hills of Oregon to plant, grow and produce ultra premium Pinot Noir. They have been involved in every aspect of growing, producing and marketing Domaine Serene wines. Now celebrating the 20th Anniversary of Domaine Serene, they own 462 acres of land in Yamhill County in the Willamette Valley of Oregon, 150 acres of the land planted to vine. In addition to Pinot Noir, which is about 95% of the wine produced, they also make a little Chardonnay and Syrah. Their wines have won many accolades and awards, including besting Domaine de la Romanée Conti in blind tastings, being called 'The Château Lafite of Oregon' by Anthony Dias Blue, The Best Oregon Pinot Noir by the Wall St Journal, and outstanding (top rating) Oregon producer by Robert Parker.
