    We are growers, producing the best possible grapes for sale to top wineries.  The winemaker at A to Z / Rex Hill winery in Newberg, Oregon, purchases all our fruit. It is a compliment that we can provide quality fruit to a well-respected label.
    When you stay at the Lobenhaus Bed and Breakfast, you may be treated to a complimentary vineyard tour with viticulturist, Joe. Learn how the grapes are nurtured for your future wine enjoyment. In the summer, taste the grapes as they are maturing… then visit Rex Hill to sample the fine wines. Tasting is complimentary for guests of the Lobenhaus Bed and Breakfast.
    The vineyard was established in 2001, planting four varieties of grapes in the fertile sedimentary soils of the Yamhill-Carlton AVA. Remember, it is all about the dirt! Our grapes are Pommard clones of Pinot Gris, White Riesling, Müller-Thurgau and the highly popular Pinot Noir. The Lobenhaus vineyard is certified sustainable – LIVE, Salmon-Safe (Low Input Viticulture & Enology). This system creates and maintains a high level of quality fruit production. Our farming practices reduce reliance on synthetic chemicals and fertilizers with the goal of protecting the environment.
    Wine produced from LIVE certified fruit is of the highest quality and is intended for refined palates and environmentally conscious consumers from around the world. The LIVE seal is granted to wines that fulfill environmentally and socially responsible grape growing and winemaking goals. Ask for LIVE certified wines.
