Jim and Loie Maresh, who originally planted Pinot Noir on their farm in 1970 upon the urgings of neighbor Dick Erath, began to produce and sell wine from Maresh Vineyard under the Maresh Red Barn label in their own Red Barn Tasting Room adjacent the vineyard on Worden Hill Road. Most of the Maresh Vineyard fruit goes to other wineries.
Today, with the passing of Loie, Jim and his offspring manage Maresh Red Barn Vineyard. The vineyard now consists of 60 acres in the Dundee Hills. About 1,000 cases of Maresh Red Barn Pinot Noir is produced. The historic Red Barn is the only place where Maresh family wines can be purchased.
The tasting room is open Friday through Sunday from March through Thanksgiving.
The adjacent Maresh Red Hill Vineyard Retreat is a large house with views of the Cascades available for rent. Contact Martha Maresh at 503-538-7034.
