Fox Farm Vineyards

The tasting room is on Hwy 99 – the main road in Dundee

Until you really dive into and commit yourself to exploring the different sub-AVA’s of the Willamette Valley you will not understand, or possibly even believe me when I say that the pinot noir varietal in my opinion is the most transparent grape in existence.

Stopping into Fox Farm Vineyards and trying their site specific pinot noirs would be a very good introduction to this flavor journey. Owner David Fish is more then ready to be your tour guide in a glass.

Our first stop was a bright, lively and fruity pinot noir grown in the Dundee Hills. David immediately followed that with a dark and smoky pinot from the Yamhill / Carlton AVA.

Due to the elevation the Dundee Hills have a greater temperature fluctuation from day to night giving the grapes a lively and more focused expression.
Folie Hills Vineyard in Dundee. Elevation 584 feet with a north eastern slope which protects the grapes from the hot afternoon sun.

Wines that are being produced from grapes grown in the Dundee hills are complex yet delicate, as David would say “Elegance is not weakness”. Watch our entire interview with him below.

You will not find Fox Farm wines in any store but you will find them at fine restaurants and resorts throughout the United States and of course inside their tasting room in Dundee, Oregon. You can also check out the latest vintages and consider being part of the wine club on their web site here.

About XPLORE FILM and Sip & Stay

The Art of Life

Tony and Terri-Lynn met in 1987 as teenagers. In 1991 they were married.  Tony has been a professional musician his entire life and spent the 90’s touring and releasing albums.  In 2001 the couple left the cities and moved to a small community on the Oregon coast. This is where they fell into television production and film making. In 2004 Makai Ohana Productions was founded and the couple produced advertising and creative content for hundreds of tourism related businesses and government entities in Southern Oregon and Northern California. Realizing the industry was evolving towards the internet they re-branded the business in 2012 to Xplore Film.  This company would now be an international business producing films world wide as well as an NGO in West Africa where the couple provides clean water boreholes, scholarships and even a prosthetic hand project.

In 2018 Tony and Terri-Lynn with their dog Bisque Kitt packed the belongings they could carry on their backs and flew to Spain. They bought a home and planned to spend equal time between the two countries running the business.  Then Covid hit and the world closed.  By 2020 they realized Spain, and specifically Torrevieja was now home.  They bought a sailboat and started to create a life on the Costa Blanca of music, film, events and community.
