Stephen Goff, Colene Clemens Vineyard

Stephen Goff, Winemaker and Vineyard Manager

Veteran Oregon winemaker Stephen Goff’s career spans over 22 years of growing grapes and making wines in the Willamette Valley. Having started his career in California Stephen relocated to the Oregon in 2001 to work as the assistant winemaker at esteemed Willamette Valley producer Beaux Freres. After six years he moved on to his current position working with local owners Joe and Vicki Stark as they launched Colene Clemens Vineyards, a from the ground up Estate based project focused on Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.

For the past 15 years Stephen has been the Winemaker and Vineyard Manager at Colene Clemens having overseen the development and planting of the 62-acre property as well as the construction of the estate winery. Over the course of his tenure Colene Clemens has racked up myriad accolades from all the major trade publications including 3 appearances as a Wine Spectator top 100 wines of the year. One of those placings including a coveted top 10 when Colene Clemens was selected as the #7 wine in 2018, one of fewer than 10 Oregon producers to ever crack the top 10 on this list.

In addition to his work at Colene Clemens, Stephen produces a tiny amount of wine under his own name working with some of Oregon oldest and most storied vineyard sites.

More About Colene Clemens Vineyards

Located where the Chehalem Mountains converge with Ribbon Ridge, this 122-acre property was acquired in 2005 and first planted in 2006. With an elevation of 350 to 650 feet, this rocky, south-facing hillside is composed of marine sedimentary and volcanic basalt soils. Completely dry-farmed, the 62-acre vineyard consists of five different clones: Wädenswil, Pommard, Dijon 115, Dijon 114, Dijon 667, and Dijon 777.

The farming practices of Colene Clemens can best be described as sustainable, and they utilize organic farming whenever possible. They are firm believers in taking care of their soil, practicing crop reduction for low yields, and hand harvesting their fruit at its optimal physiological ripeness.

The Menu & Pairings
