Vincent at Zenith Vineyard in the Eola Hills

Vincent Wine Company is Willamette Valley winery making Oregon Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Pinot Blanc, Gamay and even red wine from Pinot Gris. Owner/winemaker Vincent Fritzsche launched the winery in 2009 after years of apprenticing in wineries in Oregon and California. We’re all about low-input wine making, working with several sustainably-farmed vineyards around the Willamette Valley to produce small amounts of handmade wine without a lot of fuss. Join the Vincent Wine Company mailing list to get access to our annual futures offer, which gives you first chance at all our new wines at the best prices of the year.

Our winery home is a small facility in the beautiful Eola HIlls. Tasting for Vincent is by appointment only for mailing list members. To set up your appointment with winemaker Vincent Fritzsche, simply join our mailing list. Tasting for list members are at no charge, though groups of 8 or more require a nominal fee.

About the Name

Vincent Wine Company is named for many things. It is Vincent’s name, of course. It was also the name of his uncle and maternal grandfather. But, really, the name pays homage to the 4th century Saint Vincent of Saragossa, Spain, the patron saint of vintners. He was adopted centuries ago by the Burgundians, makers of the Pinot noir and Chardonnay, our grapes. Each year on or around January 22, they celebrate his feast day with the legendary Fête de la Saint Vincent. For all these reasons, it seems fitting for our wine to carry the name Vincent.
