Hell-o new WEB site for Cameron Winery! We have been working on you for a while now but finally you are ready to reveal yourself.
What you will NOT get on this web site is an ability to purchase wines directly from the winery because we are intent on devoting our time and talents to growing grapes and making wine and leaving the selling part to far more able people in the world of retail. Therefore, you will quickly note that when you click on buying wine, you will be connected to a list of links for retail outlets that carry our wine. If you are a retail outlet in an out-of-state market that carries our wine and you do not find a link to you on this web site, please alert us to that fact and we will put you on!
The new Web site is primarily intended to be informational (and entertaining…in fact sometimes more entertaining than actually informational!). You will note that we are maintaining vineyard and cellar photo galleries and blogs regarding everything that goes on at Cameron Winery (this will include reports on the goats, chickens, geese…Fois and Gras, our honey bees, Guido…the winery policeman, and the human component, as well as the more mundane aspects of growing grapes and making and aging pinot noir, chardonnay, and more!).
There might be occasional videos along with the changing photo gallery and I guarantee that there will be new things to learn whenever you check on this site. Your comments are always welcome, even if they are not appreciated!Share This

In the fall, as grape clusters are nearing their state of perfection, it is rain and the temperature associated with it that I keep a vigilant eye on. Depending on the year, “the ripe zone” for Pinot noir can range from several days to 2 weeks. In the latter part of September 2013, The University of Washington Department of Meteorology predicted a major storm rolling into Oregon. Thanks to a heads up from their website, we scheduled picking for 5 consecutive days, and brought our grapes in just before several inches of warm rain nearly destroyed the 2013 crop.There’s More... >
