August Schaad settled on Parrott Mountain in 1902. He established a farm and passed the love of the land to his children. Including his oldest child, Clarence. Clarence bought a small farm across the road from his parents and later bought additional farmland on Chehalem Mountain that is now the working part of our farm and home to August Cellars.
August Cellars, established in 2002, is a family-owned corporation. The winery is named after great-grandfather and patriarch, August Schaad. August Cellars represents the desires of the third and fourth generations to keep the family farm in agricultural use rather than sold off as a housing development. The winery is located at 14000 NE Quarry Road, Newberg Oregon.
The farm has 42 acres of land in production that includes English walnuts, and Italian prunes, a Pinot Noir vineyard and several acres of timber. This cross-section of crops and land uses allows the native fauna to prosper. We have seen chipmunks and squirrels, a black-tailed weasel, foxes, bobcats, cougars, coyotes, hawks and eagles, as well as quail and bluebirds.
