Growing up on a farm in Iowa, I experienced many important life lessons that I treasure to this day. When my wife and I were starting our family, it was important to us that we provide similar experiences for our children. With the future in mind, we began looking for a place to live: a sustainable and responsible farm.
With our young family in tow, we moved to Youngberg Hill in 2003 and began immediately improving the entire estate, including vineyard management, winemaking, tasting room, and hospitality. With backgrounds in winemaking, distribution, food & beverage, and marketing, we knew that all of our talents would be used to turn something that was already beautiful on the outside into a place that was equally as beautiful on the inside. In the vineyard we began organic farming, with the ultimate goal of being biodynamic.
We are taking the next step as a family in our winegrowing journey to the next level. Bailey Family Wines is a high-end wine label that showcases some of the best, most exclusive wines we have ever made from the beautiful state of Oregon that we are lucky enough to call our home.
We’ve enjoyed watching our three daughters, Natasha, Jordan, and Aspen, grow up on Youngberg Hill, and we look forward to the next steps in our winegrowing vision.
Thanks for joining us on this journey, and cheers to new beginnings!
-Wayne, Nicolette, Natasha, Jordan, and Aspen
