Youngberg Hill Winery


The view from one of the private suites

We drove up to Youngberg Hill winery and the first thing we noticed was the view. The tasting room looks out over the vineyard making it an ideal place to sample the fruit that is growing below.

The property features two distinct soils, marine sedimentary and volcanic as well as fluctuating elevations and slopes providing the wine maker Wayne Bailey a variety of delicious fruit. The warm daily temperatures are also cooled by the coastal air each night adding to the complexity of the wines and making this an ideal location for growing pinot noir.

The different blocks are named after their three daughters Jordan, Natasha and Aspen.

The wines are magnificent! That evening we were fortunate enough to stay in one of the private suites looking out over the vineyard and enjoy a delicious breakfast the next morning. You can see photos and read more about our stay here.

The wine tasting experience was very educational. You can watch the entire video we produced for them below as well as a short interview we had with Wayne discussing what is happening out in the vineyard at this time of year.

I am really looking forward to returning. And I mean that sincerely. The wines, the view, the stay, the hospitality all come together making this one of my favorite destinations in the Willamette Valley. Check out their current vintages by visiting their website 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.
