Lumos Wine Company started with Dai and PK in 2000 and has aged into a home-grown team of people all dedicated to hard work and good wine. Dai grows all of the grapes used in our wines in USDA/Oregon certified organic vineyards.

The Lumos tasting room is located on our historic family farm in Wren, OR – just 16 miles west of Corvallis and forty miles east of the coast. Housed in the big ol’ barn on what is left of the H bar H Dude Ranch which flourished in the 1940’s, the tasting room sits atop the vineyard and provides a view of the Oregon coast range and Mary’s Peak that is unique to the valley. One of the original guest cabins still stands above the vineyard and serves as a cozy, rustic overnight rental. We invite you to visit us and learn more about our farm and winery and our colorful local history.

Year’s Best and New Releases

Wine & Spirits Magazine

2017 Eola-Amity Hills Temperance Hill Vineyard Pinot Noir  Dai Crisp has been farming the shallow, lean, basalt-edged soils of Temperance Hill for 21 years. This wine gives clues to its structure as you first lean into it, with it piney, slightly dusty aromas. The evergreen scent carries into the black cherry fruit, the textures tense with a mineral compactness and silky, seductive tannins. It’s in great balance now, and will age beautifully. (260 cases) – P.J.C. April ’20

2017 Eola-Amity Hills Upper Bench Temperance Hill Vineyard Pinot Noir   This leads with scents of mineral dust and caramelly oak. With air it fills out, with a pure driving black-cherry flavor, gripping minerals and what seems like the cool side of perfect ripeness, dark and cinnamony, with a basaltic, mineral close. (69 cases) – P.J.C. April ’20
93 Points and Year’s Best US Pinots | $55 | Purchase in Online Store

 

2017 Eola-Amity Hills Double Barrel Temperance Hill Vineyard Pinot Noir  Smoky and dark, with a pronounced whole-cluster scent, this is a delicate wine precisely poised at the apex of ripeness. There’s delicacy to its fruit expression, transparent red and purple berries, smoke, pepper and quiet cherry flavors. It feels like it’s just now emerging, with great poise and elegance.. (46 cases) -P.J.C. Oct ’21
94 Points | $75 | Purchase in Online Store

2017 Eola-Amity North Temperance Hill Vineyard Pinot Noir  This cool wine from a cool site is reserved, the notes of clove, anise and dried dark plum held at a distance. The linear trajectory of the tannins suggests this is a long way from peak expression. Cellar. (96 cases) -P.J.C. April ’20
91 Points and Year’s Best US Pinots |$55 | Purchase in Online Store


2017 Eola-Amity Hills The G Temperance Hill Vineyard Pinot Noir    This bottling is drawn from an outlying shallow-soiled parcel of Temperance Hill.  It’s intensely mineral, giving the dark violet plum fruit tension and drive.  This needs some months to pull together. (97 cases) – P.J.C. April ’20
91 Points and Year’s Best US Pinots | $55 | Purchase in Online Store

 

2016 Willamette Valley Wren Chardonnay    At four years old, this wine is still a lean machine—quiet, tight and mineral, dabbling in citrus. For all that, it’s got the complexity inherent in a long ager, so let it lie for another year at least, before decanting for un grand plateau de fruits de mer. (107 cases) – P.J.C. Oct ’20

Great Wines Start In The Vineyard

Temperance Hill, managed by Dai Crisp since 1999, is a 100-acre vineyard located in the Eola-Amity Hills AVA in the northern Willamette Valley. Owned by the Koo family, this second-generation vineyard was first planted in 1981 on basalt-based volcanic soil. The vineyard is primarily made up of Pinot Noir, with a few acres of Chardonnay, Gewürztraminer and Pinot Gris. With an elevation range of 660 to 860 feet, Temperance Hill is a cool site, providing excellent growing conditions for Pinot Noir.  Learn More.

Logsdon Ridge Vineyard

Owned by the Rudolph family and known to our team as Rudolfo, this small 10-acre vineyard planted entirely to Pinot Gris and has been farmed by Dai and his team since 2000. Located just north of Corvallis, it is a warm, low elevation site that ripens very early. Its crop level over the last three years has been around 2.7 tons to the acre. The vineyard supplies 6 clients, all making beautiful Pinot Gris.

Wren Vineyard

Our home site, originally planted in 1985 by Dai and his folks, has grown to 15 acres and is planted in Pommard Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris and Dijon clone Chardonnay. Elevation is 300 – 500 feet and even with direct south facing exposure, it is an extremely cool site prone to frost. An overhead frost protection system makes it possible to farm wine grapes here and when we do see a crop through the entire season without any frost these grapes make a most stunning wine.
