When RJ and Juanita Lint discovered a derelict dairy farm in Gaston, they envisioned an estate vineyard winery. With hands-on experience and knowledge gained by volunteering at nearby Kramer Vineyards—as well as learning about vineyards and wineries through continuing education courses at the University of California, Davis and Chemeketa Community College—the Lints started their own vineyard.
RJ and Juanita’s goal is to grow the best fruit possible, with each vine personally tended and nurtured.
In 2007, Plum Hill Vineyards was born. Plum Hill produces several varietals of wine, each made with the philosophy, “to make good wine, you must first start with great fruit.”
