Gelardi Vineyard at Vistra Framing & Gallery (160 E Broadway)
Poco Collina (Italian for Little Hill) of Gelardi Vineyard is owned by Skip and Corrie Gelardi and located on the first foothill to Pacific Coastal Range of the South Willamette Valley in Cheshire. We established this sustainable boutique vineyard in 2001 by hand planting grape starts of Dijon (115 plants) on 2 acres of land that once consisted of an apple orchard turned into horse pasture with wild cherry trees and blackberries. Our vines produce fruit forward wines, rich in mineral,a hint of crisp acidity and a smooth berry finish. You can find our wines at fine dining restaurants, wine shops and retail markets.
