The Next Chapter At Arborbrook
We invite you to join us as we embark upon this beautiful adventure of life here in Oregon at Arborbrook by Cooper Mountain Vineyards.
Many moons ago I met Dave Hansen while I was sitting on the board of the Chehalem Mountains American Viticultural Area. Shortly thereafter, I made the trip from Cooper Mountain, over the Chehalem Mountain summit, down the backside of highway 219 to North Valley Road, and onwards to Arborbrook on Calkins Lane. To this day it remains one of my favorite drives in Oregon. It's a drive I've made countless times over the years: early in life, with my father, exploring and often heading to our family home on the coast. And many more times as an adult to various wine country events, dinners, meetings and eventually to a vineyard we acquired in 2018, just off North Valley Road on Kings Grade Road, a minute shy of Calkins Lane. Perhaps there is something that has always pointed our compass due Southwest. It was on a sunny spring day, after that drive, that I first met Dave and Mary at Arborbrook to plan an event for the Chehalem Mountain AVA, in the bourgeoning days of marketing of this wine region. Like so many of you, I was met by warmth, kindness, charm, love of wine and above all love of place. Immediately I felt at home, surrounded by Oregon’s finest. When my father and I made the drive this past summer to discuss the possibility of the Hansen’s turning the reins over to us, not much had changed: Mary and Dave simply are Oregon’s finest. After all those years of searching over the hill, we knew we had found our new second home. We are honored and thrilled to take on Dave and Mary’s legacy at Arborbrook and write the next chapter of this magical place.
