About us: Join native Oregonians Dr. Henry and Araminta Miller and share the authentic experience (and the stories) behind the wines. This is an eclectic (deriving ideas, style, or taste from a broad and diverse range of sources) destination. Come cavort with the goats and tortoises, tour the cactus greenhouse, or just hang out and picnic. We look forward to seeing you. - Cheers from the Dundee Wine Library Staff
The Dundee Wine Library makes its home on the beautiful Jory soils in the Dundee Hills AVA. This small family owned winery is operated by
Henry and Araminta Miller, who are both native Oregonians, born and raised in the Willamette Valley. They have a young vineyard, and are proud to be able to say they source much of their fruit from several renowned estate vineyards in the Dundee Hills AVA, Ribbon Ridge AVA, and the Chehalem Mountains AVA, McMinnville AVA. In addition to the winery and tasting room, the Millers have a small, but elegant Bed and Breakfast.
The Millers bought their property in November of 2015, after a 3 year quest to leave the big city behind. They found their new home deep in the folds of the Dundee Hills, with a plan to enjoy the fruits of the valley and lovely people nestled within them. Their passion for the rich tastes of NW pinots made this a perfect location for continuing their support of the Oregon Wine industry, and creating new dreams.
Henry Miller is a forensics psychologist by craft, thus affording him an impressive collection of “interesting” books that fit perfectly with their two story reading library. This library, with its large couch and oversized chairs serves as additional seating for this couples’ tasting room. Wine connoisseurs may also be interested in their impressive collection of elegant library wines. Thus, the double meaning of the chosen name, Dundee Wine Library.
While relatively new to the industry, the Millers have been captivated by the willingness of veteran winemakers and owners who have openly shared their historic successes and failures in an effort to support the accomplishments of neighbors new to the business. Equally as impressive has been the respectful collaboration between wine makers and field workers, noting, every bottle as having been touched by the mystical alliance of the science and art of both professions. The Miller’s goal is to create an atmosphere of home in every bottle they serve.
Our Winemaker, Thibaud Mandet
Thibaud Mandet was born in Auvergne, in the center of France, a land of mostly extinct volcanoes, great cheeses and world famous rubber treads, Michelin tires. He earned a degree in organic chemistry, then moved on to study the more interesting field of wine chemistry in Champagne and Bordeaux. After learning how to make red, white and sparkling wine, he traveled to Texas and Corsica before landing in Oregon at Willakenzie Estate in the spring of 2000. In 2017, he decided to start his new brand and plant his own vineyard “Clos Griotte” in the Eola Hills.
Thibaud is passionate about Pinot Noir and very excited to start collaborating with the Dundee Wine Library. Thibaud shares Araminta and Henry's commitment to producing top quality wines by gentle nurturing of the vineyards.
