Reconstructing Oregon history, Abbott Claim vineyard encompasses most of the original 1855 land claim of John F. Abbott.
Located in the Yamhill-Carlton AVA of Oregon’s Willamette Valley, Abbott Claim is perched atop the Savannah Ridge, a 170-acre boundary that hosts some of the oldest soils in the Willamette Valley. Starting in 2006, Beck Family Estate proprietor, Antony Beck, began purchasing the vineyards that make up the full estate - functionally reassembling John Abbott's claim. As the next generation of stewards of this land, the team has implemented organic and regenerative farming practices in the vineyard and its surroundings since 2018, crafting examples of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay that truly speak to place.
The Abbott Claim winery opened for visitors in September 2020. Tastings are held on a reservation basis only, allowing guests to fully immerse themselves in their experience. The first Abbott Claim wines will be released in 2021 and made available by allocation to their mailing list. WineryHunt Oregon members will be among the first to get to experience this new exploration of Oregon's terroir.
