Events at Chateau Lorane

Hello! My name is Linde Kester, I am co-owner (along with my wife Sharon) at Chateau Lorane. Even before starting our winery in 1991, I was intrigued by the many obscure varieties that I discovered at Oregon State University's Woodhall III Vineyard. I wondered to myself why these particular varieties never became popular. I also wondered what kind of wine could be made and would people take a chance and buy them? I viewed these varieties as a challenge and began making small batches of wine, usually a half of a barrel (30 gallons) to as much as 1-2 barrels. The response to my efforts was extremely positive. Several more obscure varieties were found and we began calling this collection of wines, "rare, unusual, and exotic." Our winemaker, Dave Gruber, works very hard to insure that each one of these wines is truly something special. Our goal is to produce wines that exhibit the distinct characteristics of each unique variety and to offer an opportunity to experience the full breadth of wine flavors and nuances.

In the past, many of these limited production wines sold out very quickly and people that did not visit our tasting room regularly were disappointed. The wine club is an opportunity to release these very special wines exclusively to club members before they are offered to the general public.
