The name Stangeland is of Norwegian origin and seemed appropriate in 1978 when this small site in the Eola-Amity Hills AVA was first planted by owner Larry D. Miller. The vineyard is on a rocky, south-facing hillside and Miller's older sister, who helped initially in the planting, said, "I think Stangeland means "stoneland" in Norwegian, so it seemed like a good idea to honor their Norwegian grandparents by naming the vineyard after them. When the vineyard was first planted, there only about 25 acres of grapes in the area, which has now grown to well over 2,000 acres.
After 35 years of growing and 22 years of wine production, Stangeland Vineyards is still producing small lots of Pinot Noir (70% of production), and smaller lots of Pinot Gris, Chardonnay, Gewürztraminer and Tempranillo.
The wines are sold on the winery's website store and through retail distribution.
