Brothers Tom and Jim Schadd wanted to hold onto their family's property and keep it from becoming a housing development, so they founded August Cellars in 2002. Their 16,000-square-foot winery was opened to the public in November 2004. The winery was built into a hillside around a gravity-flow system, with production facilities on the top two floors and barrel rooms on the bottom.
Jim is the winemaker and currently bottles a number of white varietals and Pinot Noir. Jim and Tom's father and aunt currently manage the 42-acre family farm that is planted with English walnuts, Italian prunes, and Pinot Noir. The Pinot Noir is currently leased to other wineries.
The Schaads also engage in an alternating proprietorship with several other wineries. Several very small boutique wineries (Laura Volkman, Et Fille) to use August Cellars' equipment and facility.
August Cellars was the first Oregon winery to install a wind turbine in 2011. The turbine generates approximately two-thirds of the winery's electrical needs.
The tasting room at 14000 NE Quarry Rid in Newberg is open daily.
