About Us

Vitis Ridge is owned & operated by Chris & Sharon Deckelmann. What started as a hobby in the Deckelmann’s garage, over 20 years ago, we can proudly say that we have evolved into one of the North Willamette Valley's most popular wineries.

Chris has earned the title of Winemaker with years of wine-making experience and his strong viticulture background. He also manages a number of other vineyards in the area. His passion is growing quality fruit and turning it into a quality product, in the form of wine, for all to enjoy. Sharon supports him by managing the office & tasting room. We are proud that our combined skills help to produce award winning, affordable Vitis Ridge wines.

About the Winery

Established in 2005, Vitis Ridge is a small boutique Oregon winery producing about 3,000 cases annually. Focusing on unique wines and specialty blends, Vitis Ridge offers more varieties of wine than most large production wineries. Our tasting room is located next to our estate grown Pinot Gris & Marechal Foch vineyards. You won't find anything fancy about us but instead you'll find friendly faces & a relaxed atmosphere, where you're welcome to bring a picnic lunch & enjoy a glass of wine on our back patio.

Our Tasting Room is located at 6685 Meridian Rd NE, just 1.5 miles from downtown Silverton Oregon. Our entire production, from grape to bottle, takes place at this location. Join us for a unique tasting room experience amongst the barrels. We are animal friendly and can accommodate over-sized vehicles.

We are open for tasting Friday through Sunday, noon to 5 pm, but only the 2nd & 4th weekends each month. One exception being September when we are open the 1st & 3rd weekend to include Labor Day. We are closed in January & February, but will gladly open if you call for an appointment. If your group would like to visit Vitis Ridge for a private tasting or special event, please contact us for details. So that we are adequately staffed, we appreciate you advising us, in advance, if you are bringing a large group.

Vitis Ridge is a proud member of the Cascade Foothills Winegrowers. Please visit their website for a listing of winery members plus a map of where they're located.
