A sloping vineyard and evergreen trees at Vidon Vineyard in Newberg, Oregon can be seen from a covered patio on site. This image was taken during an oral history interview with Don Hagge on August 3, 2016. Hagge was interviewed by Linfield College Archives staff Rich Schmidt; also in attendance were Linfield College archivist Rachael Cristine Woody and student Shelby Cook.

Don Hagge and his wife Vicki are the co-owners and co-founders of Vidon Vineyard. Hagge, a former scientist for NASA, bought the land in 1999. Situated in the Chehalem Mountains, Vidon Vineyard is a small estate winery that is both LIVE (Low Input Viticulture & Enology) certified and Salmon-Safe.
