DUNDEE HILLS, Ore., Nov. 6, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Archery Summit, the renowned winery nestled in the heart of the Willamette Valley, celebrates a significant milestone with the grand opening of its expansive new tasting room project. In February 2023, Crimson Wine Group embarked on a remarkable journey to enhance the Archery Summit Winery, coinciding with the winery’s 30th anniversary. The expansion, designed to elevate the experience for longtime enthusiasts and newcomers to the world of wine, was spearheaded by Heliotrope Architects and completed by R&H Construction Co.
“Over the past 30 years, Archery Summit has garnered incredible acclaim and built a dedicated following of collectors. With our expanded estate, we now have more experiences and reservations for consumers to enjoy our wines,” said Jen Locke, CEO of Crimson Wine Group. “The estate is gorgeous, nestled in the hills overlooking the picturesque Dundee Hills.”
The newly-renovated & expanded Tasting House boasts an 1800 sq ft enclosed tasting room with a captivating fireplace, floor-to-ceiling windows providing breathtaking views of the Dundee Hills, and an outdoor terrace allowing visitors to take in the views and crisp Oregon air while they taste. When you first step inside the Tasting House, your eye is drawn to a grand custom-made live-edge Black Walnut entry table crafted by Urban Lumber Co. This table is crafted from the oldest Black Walnut hardwood ever salvaged by Urban Lumber, planted roughly 150 years ago in the Willamette Valley, and it carries the rich history of Oregon’s earliest settlers. This sustainable design embodies a story of growth, perseverance, and deep-rooted connections to the beautiful valley, reflecting the ethos of Archery Summit.
Visitors to the newly-expanded Archery Summit estate can look forward to savoring award-winning Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, including the iconic Arcus Pinot Noir, known for its rich, complex flavors and unparalleled quality, all while taking in the expansive views of the valley.
