Ximena Orrego

Ximena Orrego


Ximena was born in Peru and grew up throughout Latin America and Canada. After university she moved to Florida, where she met Guy. It was there that they tasted their first Oregon Pinot Noir and decided to visit the Willamette Valley on vacation. Before their trip was over, they had placed a bid on their property – their future had been sealed. They built their family home among the vines, creating a place where they have watched their children grow, stay connected with the vineyard and coexist with nature.

After many vintages learning, first as harvest intern and then actively working in the cellar, Ximena is now the winemaker for their wines. One of her “aha” moments with wine was when she was a harvest intern at Raptor Ridge Winery in 2007. As people may recall, that was a very cool vintage and she remembers it being constantly wet and cold. But, she fell in love with the aromas of the Pinot Noir grapes as they were going through primary fermentation. She was completely seduced by that experience, even though it was hard.

To this day, one of her favorite things to do is to smell the fermenters every day and see the various expressions of the fruit as they develop.
