Chara Vineyard was established in 2017 on fertile suburban farmland as a local source for high quality pinot noir grapes.  “Chara” is the Greek word for JOY.  We chose this name because it is a joy to see the vineyard as we come and go from our property and because a great pinot is a joy to drink.  We look forward to sharing our grapes with local wine makers who will turn our wonderful grapes into fine Oregon pinots.  Stay tuned to “enJOY” the fruit of our vines.
