Grace and Ken Evenstad first arrived and settled in the Dundee Hills in the Willamette Valley in 1989. At that time, the couple had spent over 20 years together in Minnesota building a successful business, a loving family, and a deep appreciation for the wines of Burgundy. The Evenstads had faith in Oregon early on, before there was a national market for domestic Pinot Noir. When the time came to pursue their longtime dream of growing and producing world class Pinot Noir, they invested in a 42 acre hilltop estate that had just been logged in the beautiful Dundee Hills of Oregon. With the support of their family - and to the surprise of many of their friends in Minnesota – the Evenstads established Domaine Serene, effectively creating Oregon’s luxury wine industry. They named the winery after their daughter, Serene, and their first vineyard on the estate was named after their son, Mark Bradford Evenstad.By using our Dayton trip itinerary builder app, you can arrange your visit to Domaine Serene and other attractions in Dayton.
Today, Domaine Serene produces Pinot Noir from six vineyard estates, spanning three Willamette Valley AVAs, and Chardonnay solely from high elevations in the Dundee Hills. In 2001, the Evenstads completed construction of the picturesque, state-of-the art, five-level, gravity flow winery specifically designed to make world class Pinot Noir. Their sustainable vineyard management and winemaking practices are intended to maximize the quality of the wines and to ensure complex, balanced and elegant wines that are age-worthy. Since the first vintage in 1990, Domaine Serene has produced award winning wines, including Evenstad Reserve Pinot Noir, recognized as the World’s #3 Wine of 2013 by Wine Spectator Magazine. Through the continuous pursuit of quality and innovation, Domaine Serene has garnered global recognition as an iconic quality leader of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.

Wow! Just....Wow. Like a five-star resort in San Diego or Palm Springs. I'd rate it five-stars just for the facility alone. But the view is also five stars as was the wine, food and service. You won't find a better winery than this anywhere.
Great winery! Enjoyed the tasting, reasonably priced. I would definitely go back.
