Oral History | Viticulture and Oenology


Harry and Wynne Peterson-Nedry are photographed during an oral history interview at Chehalem Winery in Newberg, Oregon on April 15, 2016. The Peterson-Nedrys were interviewed by Linfield College Archives staff Rich Schmidt and student Camille Weber.

Harry Peterson-Nedry founded Chehalem Winery in 1990 in what is now part of the Ribbon Ridge American Viticultural Area (AVA) in Oregon. Bill Stoller joined Peterson-Nedry in winery operations in 1993, planting a second vineyard on his family's farmland at the southern tip of the Dundee Hills. Chehalem purchased Corral Creek in 1995, making it the third site in as many AVAs from which Chehalem sources its fruit. Wynne Peterson-Nedry, Harry's daughter, is a second-generation winemaker at Chehalem.
