Visiting J.K. Carriere

By | Uncategorized

At J.K. Carriere we believe that farming with intention, and winemaking with detail, brings forth high-acid, high-IQ wines. We also like to linger, preferably overlooking the mountains, with something good in a glass. Maybe you do, too. Come. It’s here. And it’s worth the uphill. The tasting room is open for drop-in visitors Friday and Saturday, 11 am to 4 pm. Private appointments Monday through Thursday are available on a mutually agreeable basis ($25/person); please contact us. We are closed Sunday.

J.K. Carriere, 9995 NE Parrett Mtn Rd., Newberg, OR 97132 * 503-554-0721  directions

Carriere wines. The after-nap is on your turf.  Friday, October 13, 11 am to 1:30 pm. Reserve your $45 spot at
