Our Story

In 2012 La Dolce Vita was acquired by the Hildebrandt family, who have lived and worked in Oregon for over 60 years.  Activity initially focused on the vineyard, with investments in equipment and farming practices to create outstanding pinot noir and pinot gris fruit.  More recently plans were put in place to offer an estate pinot noir wine "ESANDE", to be made exclusively with La Dolce Vita Vineyard‘s blend of 115 and 777 french clone fruit.  This new offering is extremely limited, and promises to be another fantastic representation of Pinot Noir, with fruit grown and wine made in Oregon!

Our Vineyard

La Dolce Vita Vineyards is an 11 acre, internationally LIVE Certified, sustainable Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris Vineyard located in the beautiful Tualatin Hills area of Oregon's fertile Willamette Valley.  The Vineyard was originally planted in 1996, with rows facing south/southeast.  The dominant soil type throughout the Vineyard is Melbourne, which is formed from sedimentary rock. In addition, some volcanic seams are present in the higher elevations.  Pinot Noir clones include 115, 777 and Pommard.  Our goal at La Dolce Vita Vineyards is very simple, to produce the finest quality grapes for Oregons robust wine industry.  Past customers for our fruit include, Elk Cove Vineyards and Pike Road Wines, Torii Mor Winery, White Rose Estates, J. Rallison Cellars, Devona Winery and Ponzi Vineyards.  Check us out on Facebook and Twitter below!

Our La Dolce Vita Wines

Since 2012, La Dolce Vita has sold 100% of its fruit to area wineries.  A number of these wineries produced wines made exclusively with our La Dolce Vita fruit (single vineyard designated), including White Rose Estate (2), Guillen Family and J. Rallison Cellars.  An additional  commercially available Magnum bottling offered from Devona was just released using 100% LDV Pinot Noir fruit from the fantastic 2016 vintage.  J. Rallison Cellars has two offerings bottled, and Dundee Wine Library has one, but both have not yet been released.  Additional offerings from area wineries are planned in the future, and are currently in barrels.  In total, LDV has 8 commercial bottlings of 100% vineyard fruit.  Beginning with the 2018 vintage, La Dolce Vita initiated an offering of its own flagship "ESANDE" Pinot Noir wine, made exclusively from our estate fruit.  This extremely limited production wine is currently in barrels but is already sold out.  If you are interested in purchasing future ESANDE offerings, beginning with the 2019 vintage, please join our waiting list.
