Introducing The Grand Tasting Hall
Fashioning The New Wing
It was thirty years ago when Don and Wendy Lange moved into the hills above Dundee and became one of the early-established wineries in the state of Oregon. Today, they and second-generation winemaker Jesse Lange commemorate this anniversary by opening a new tasting room to better accommodate continued growth in Willamette Valley wine country traffic.
The new wing of Lange Estate Winery will not only increase space for hosting casual and private seated tastings, but it includes plans for a larger laboratory footprint, room for production to expand, and an opportunity for more food and wine experiences with a state-of-the-art chef’s kitchen.
The Lange’s partnered with Portland based Holah Design + Architecture, a firm the family selected for their commitment to bringing-to-life ideas that are rooted in the Pacific Northwest. Plus, the two companies have a history. In the mid-2000’s, the Lange’s partnered with the team at Holah Design to construct their West Wing building – a second barrel room and formal tasting room, as well as administrative offices.
Working in concert with the Lange’s and Holah Design was O’Brien & Company, a design/build construction firm that specializes in wineries and utilizes green construction. They pride themselves on understanding the dream of their clients to “live and work in your passion.” This characteristic is of particular importance as Don & Wendy have lived onsite since they first opened the tasting room in their basement in 1987.
With the Grand Opening Celebration scheduled to launch Lange Estate into the summer season, the hospitality wing will add on significant square footage in the form of an elegant tasting hall, accompanied by a large deck overlooking older blocks of the estate vineyard with Mount Hood peeking out in the distance.
Visitors to Oregon’s wine country may see experience the new wing in person this winter and spring as Lange Estate Winery’s Grand Tasting Hall will enjoy a seasonal soft opening with tastings offered daily from 11am to 5pm.
