About our winery:

Fries Family owns and operated Duck Pond, in the heart of the Willamette Valley. Producing high quality wines at an affordable price.

Three things to love about us:

1. The Fries family also owns Desert Wind Winery, in Prosser, WA.2. We own all of our vineyards (over 500 acres) -- so we do not source our fruit.3. We produce special varieties like Gamay Noir, Pinot Blanc, and more -- just for wine club members and SOME in the tasting room, never in the market.

What makes us unique:

We offer a complimentary flight in our tasting room and a small lot list for $5 (refundable with bottle purchase from that flight). Most wineries are charging much higher/flight around the Willamette Valley.

Our awards:

Recent Awards 2012 Pinot NoirGold Medal – 2014 Portland Seafood and Wine FestivalSilver Medal - 2014 Los Angeles International Wine Competition2013 Pinot GrisOutstanding! rating / Best Buy - Wine Press Northwest, Summer 2014 issue(This was the least expensive Willamette Valley or Oregon Pinot Gris to receive this top rating)"This longtime Dundee Hills winery (which also owns Desert Wind Winery in the Yakima Valley) excels at crafting delicious and fairly priced wines. This Pinot Gris is one of its best efforts, thanks to aromas of Asian pear, white peach and minerality, followed by flavors of pear, Golden Delicious apple and an alluring dusty quality, all backed with just a kiss of sweetness."Value Pick - Oregon Wine Press, April 2014 issue"Spreading the love over a wider area lately, the Fries family’s most recent release features a very varietal profile of citrus, melon and stone fruit accented by white pepper and thyme."Chuck Hill\'s Wine of the Week Pick, September 5, 2014"Grapes for this Pinot Gris came from Duck Pond Cellars estate vineyards in the South Salem Hills: St. Jory Vineyard, Delaney Vineyard and Hylo Vineyard. From grape to wine in the glass, this bottling demonstrates the ability of Pinot Gris to be a versatile food wine. Tropical fruit, mineral and lemon mingle with notes of lime zest and nectarine on both the nose and palate and pair well with seafood or lighter meats and fowl."
