Our Story

Naumes Family Vineyards embodies 100 years of farming heritage with a deep commitment to quality and integrity. Our wines celebrate three generations of sustainable growing and our most important priorities – family, friends and farming.

Our Family

The Naumes Family toasts with glasses of red wine

For three generations the Naumes Family has grown premium pears and apples in Southern Oregon. True to our farming background, we are a little obsessed when it comes to growing fruit. We’ve spent our lives in the orchards training trees, grafting branches, picking pears and learning the best practices first hand. We are very excited that our commitment to growing quality fruit through sustainable farming practices can now be experienced in our vineyards and enjoyed in our wines.

Our Winemaker

Head Winemaker Chris Graves stands next to wine barrels

Our winemaker, Chris Graves, brings an abundance of knowledge and passion to every bottle of wine we produce. Raised in the Sierra Foothills of California, Chris began his career in the Bay Area at Wente Vineyards and went on to establish Ruby Hill Winery before moving to the Rogue Valley as head winemaker for Naumes Family Vineyards. Chris has experience with many grape varietals and specializes in high-tech, low-impact processing that produces expertly balanced, premium wines.

Our Vineyards

Pinot Noir grapes growing at Naumes Family Vineyards

In 2013 the Naumes Family decided to enter the wine industry and converted an old apple orchard into a six-acre, Pinot Noir vineyard. Fast forward to today and we have expanded our vineyards in the Rogue Valley region of Southern Oregon to include Grenache, Chardonnay, and Pinot Gris varietals. Then and now, each vine is painstakingly planted and trained by hand to ensure the best possible growing conditions. We believe only the highest quality fruit can produce the best wines.
