The Oregon soil where our grapes are grown have been in our family for over 120 years.
Dino Simoni’s great grandfather purchased the land in 1894. Dino’s roots are deep in Oregon soil, as his mother was born on the property where our grapes are grown. He has fond memories of playing in the barn that is on our label, during family trips to Oregon. In 2014, Dino and Patti Simoni bought the property from his cousin with the dream of planting wine grapes.
The dream became a reality.
In 2015 Pinot Noir and Chardonnay grapes were planted in this prime region of the Willamette Valley. Our family is very proud of this wine and the history of where it is grown. We know how blessed we are to be stewards of this amazing land and look forward to producing premier Oregon wine.

We are pleased to release our highly anticipated 2018 Dino’s Pinot. Crafted by our winemaker Kevin Wiles from our estate vineyard fruit, the wine has deeper purple color with baked Italian plum, blackberries and notes of candied fig and cola on the nose. This vintage is soft, balanced and elegant with a burst of dark fruit jam, mouth watering acidity and a velvety finish.
Our wines are also available in the following locations:
Vintage Press restaurant, Visalia CA
The Depot restaurant, Visalia CA
Sapphire Laguna restaurant, Laguna CA
Jack and Charlies restaurant, Visalia CA
Visalia Country Club, Visalia CA
We are also very excited to release our first Chardonnay in the spring of 2021. The Annette Belle Chardonnay is named in honor of our dear mothers, both gone too soon. We have three acres of Chardonnay planted on our property We feel very fortunate to have Jay McDonald, of EIEIO Winery, making our Chardonnay. He is a master at crafting beautiful Oregon Chardonnay.
We look forward to sharing Anneta Belle Chardonnay with you in the spring!
Meet Winemaker Kevin Wiles
Kevin is a proud, native West Virginian. He has worked in the wine industry in roles ranging from distribution, importing, restaurant and fine wine retail. An invitation to Oregon Pinot Camp in 2005 ignited a passion for production of Oregon Pinot.
He began in 2006 as a harvest intern for R. Stuart & Company Winery and worked his way up to Assistant Winemaker. Looking to further gain experience in small lot production and single vineyard designation, he accepted a Cellar Master role with Raptor Ridge Winery.
After his 11th harvest in Oregon, Kevin decided to explore other interests.
Still having a love and passion for winemaking, he was offered the position of winemaker at Simoni Family Vineyards. We are thrilled to have Kevin and his vast knowledge and experience on our team.
