Coria Estates is a family owned boutique winery in the heart of the Willamette Valley specializing in Pinot noir, Pinot gris, and Chardonnay. We aspire to make great wines to be enjoyed with great food around the table. In our family, wine is a symbol of unity, love, and hard work.

As a bi-cultural family, the story of Luis and Janice begins from their separate family heritage and cultural backgrounds. Luis was born and raised in Mexico. He spent his early years helping his father growing vegetables and tending to the family livestock. He spent several years working near their family home, and by the time he was 14, ventured further seeking better opportunities and eventually found himself living in Oregon.

Janice grew up in northern Idaho and had a normal small town upbringing. In the spring of 1979, while visiting family in Oregon, Janice met Luis. By 1981 they were married and by 1985 had welcomed two baby girls to the family! Life sped by, but Luis still had a need to get back to his roots of farming.

In 1988 they purchased their first piece of property, a small 9 acre parcel which became the family home and later the original site of the vineyard. Early in 1997, the neighboring property became available, and they decided to take the chance and put down more roots into the mid-Willamette Valley. Early in the winter of 1999, they planted their first Pinot noir and Pinot gris vines with the help of family and friends. Now 18 years later, the vineyard is a mature 94 aces with Pinot noir, Pinot gris, and Chardonnay planted on mostly Nekia clay soils with elevations ranging from 400 to 850 feet.

The whole family continues to be involved in what makes Coria Estates an exciting and thriving vineyard and winery. Luis and Janice continue to manage the vineyard and the administrative side of the business. Their youngest daughter Aurora is the winemaker, and one of only a few female winemakers in the state of Oregon. Their eldest daughter Elizabeth helps with tasting room events on the side of her professional job as a Speech Language Pathologist. Elizabeth’s husband Tyler handles the photography and designing the marketing and promotional materials.

All our wines are estate grown, and are now processed and poured on-site in our newly constructed production facility and tasting room, completed in June 2017.

Our appreciation for our guests is top priority, and we make every effort to ensure your visit with us is hospitable, fun, and relaxed. ¡Salud!

  • Wonderful wine and good atmosphere with a view! Love going here, we've taken several of our friends and have always had a great time.
  • This is a hard post to write....my first experience here was very decent....it was late 2018 and my wife and I stopped in to try some wine early one morning. The selection was limited but we left with three bottles and a smile.... memorial day weekend 2019 on the other hand....same selection of wines but expanded.....as the new vintage had yet to be bottled....and we left after a short bit having felt the tasting fee was a waste.....whatever happened over the winter needs attention....
