The Zielinski family first set roots in the Willamette Valley in the 1940's and founded Scenic Valley Farms in 1970. These days, the farm harvests cherries, pears, hazelnuts, green beans, grass seed, and hops, in addition to grapes from the vines Bob Zielinski first planted in 2008. Bob's kids Brian and Tina are the new generation at Scenic, and as demonstrated by their acquisition of a 35-hectare vineyard in 2015, they are clearly devoting more focus and energy into the winemaking aspect of the farm. Although a large amount of acreage is dedicated to pinot noir, just as much care goes into the making of their pinot gris. More lush than a typical pinot grigio yet drier than the typical Alsatian (these days), Scenic's version is a perfect accompaniment to roasted chicken or vegetables and creamy cheeses.
