First planted in 1971 by four families working together (the Kreimeyers, Markleys, Welches, and Trenhailes), the vineyard spans over 200 acres with roughly 180 acres under vine; making it one of Oregon's oldest and largest vineyards.

Sitting on a south facing bench at 600 to 800 feet in the foothills of the Coastal Range in the McMinnville AVA, this site benefits from cooler temperatures in the summer and warmer temperatures in the winter; allowing for a longer and more uniform ripening period. With just over 180 acres planted on volcanic Jory soil holding similar attributes to the red dirt of the acclaimed Dundee Hills AVA, the old, self-rooted Pommard, Wädenswil, and Coury Pinot Noir vines together with newer plantings in 1989 to Dijon 115, provide a number of blending options from this unique site.

The Hyland Vineyard is now home to plantings of Gewürztraminer, Riesling, Chardonnay, Müller Thurgau and numerous Pinot Noir clones including Wädenswil, Pommard, Dijon 115 and the original Coury plantings from 1971.
