Since 2002, Dusky Goose has called the Dundee Hills home. Nestled between the protective rain shadow of Oregon’s Coast Range to the West and the majestic Cascade Range to the East, our Rambouillet Estate Vineyard lies in the cool climate heart of the Willamette Valley, perfectly suited for growing World-Class Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.
Dusky Goose was founded in 2002 in the Dundee Hills, Oregon’s premier winegrowing region, by native Oregonians John and Linda Carter. Claiming the Dundee Hills as the place to make their mark for growing World Class wines from the Willamette Valley set the Dusky Goose mission into motion.
Dusky Goose’s nine-acre Rambouillet Estate Vineyard is located in the heart of the Dundee Hills. The name Rambouillet was chosen as a homage to the Eastern Oregon ranching roots of Dusky Goose owners John & Linda Carter. For generations, Linda’s family has been raising Rambouillet sheep for their luxurious wool for the famous mills of Pendleton, Oregon.
