We tried doing a drop in yesterday but they were booked. A gentleman sitting out front was very nice and explained , saying to try again. We have not visited here yet, but decided to give a review based on what we read. The customer service and follow up seem wonderful here. A refreshing change from the pretentiousness we experienced on the hill yesterday. Tasting fees are climbing up, and service needs to be evaluated. Up your game folks and take a lesson from Durant who seems to care about their customers. We hope to get into Durant soon so we can taste. Well done.
One of our favorites. Great wine meets a really welcoming, relaxed atmosphere. Durant does plenty of fun events (sometimes live music, sometimes olive harvest, etc). Oregon’s only active olive mill is on the property at which Durant produces several different vibrant olive oils and other products for sample and purchase. Rounded out with terrific views, friendly staff, and lovely walks along the vines (pre COVID), it’s the full package.
Right now, they are operating their tasting room on a limited basis, by appointment only for club members. They have gone to great lengths to ensure guest safety and have a very large outdoor space. Their wine is terrific, they offer some nice snacks and the service is fabulous.
We went for a music night at the vineyard on Friday, July 17th to listen to the wonderful music. Our server was Jesse. He was absolutely terrible. He did not visit our table once without our table having to ask another server for help. In our attempt to purchase friends and family a bottle of wine he decided that we reached a limit. 5 of us were allowed a total of 2 bottles all evening. not accommodating to say the least. However!! The wine was delicious. We ordered the 2016 madrone Pinot which was stellar!! And I also really enjoyed the 2017 madrone Pinot noir. To be clear I give the establishment a bad rating due to The male server Jesse. Everything else was outstanding. I am a member of the vineyards wine club for goodness sake. I am expecting a lot, but we pay.... Also some of the most beautiful scenery around :)
We are members of the olive oil club. Great people.
