The Nicolas-Jay Tasting Room in Newberg Oregon

Visit Nicolas-Jay Estate

By Appointment
11905 NE Dudley Road, Newberg Oregon 97132

Nicolas-Jay Estate is one of the premier wineries in the Willamette Valley, with an inviting tasting room for wine connoisseurs and novices alike. Built into the hillside of Oregon’s wine country, the facility allows gravity flow during harvest, and a twelve-person sorting line for the meticulous sorting of fruit that Jean-Nicolas has employed as winemaker at Domaine Méo-Camuzet. Two separate temperature controlled barrel rooms allow for overvintaging of wine and proper elevage year-round. Our indoor tasting room and outdoor patio invites groups to understand our award-winning wines and vintages, and the people and places that made them.

All tastings experiences are by reservation only.
For inquiries, call 971-412-1124 or email us.
