At Evening Land, our goal is to explore great terroir and reflect that greatness in every bottle that we produce. This begins in the vineyard with a constant stewardship of the land. We strive to make wines that reflect only the essence of the vineyard – the unique conjunction between a place, nature and time. Nothing is added; nothing is removed. We practice precision viticulture and let the land express itself. We embrace the unique character of every vintage. Our wines are created with energy, purity, transparency and elegance with insistence on true appreciation of site.
Eola-Amity Hills: Old World Values – New World Terroir
Historically, Seven Springs Vineyard has produced some of the finest grapes grown in the United States and was selected as one of the Top 10 Vineyards in America by Food and Wine Magazine. The Wine Advocate has regarded it as “one of Oregon’s finest, most consistent vineyards.” Since acquiring the vineyard in 2007, Seven Springs has become Evening Land’s largest. Taking advantage of the unique and distinctive terroir, the vineyard’s potential is explored by mixing old vines and new plantings, blending distinct blocks and experimenting with micro-cuvees that lie on the volcanic soils in the heart of the Seven Springs hill.

Seven Springs Vineyard, Eola-Amity Hills
Situated in the southeastern Eola-Amity Hills, our Seven Springs Vineyard is dry-farmed using biodynamic practices. The Pacific Ocean breeze, volcanic soil, eastern exposure, and high elevation contribute to the natural preservation of the grapes’ acidity and enrich the wines with elegant flavors and minerality.
Sixty-five acres were initially planted in the early 1980’s. Today, Seven Springs Vineyard is a 70 acre vineyard. The vineyard’s soil consists of iron-rich, volcanic rock with a thin layer of top soil – less than 36 inches right along the volcanic flow line.
Seven Springs Vineyard is LIVE certified and has been fully converted to organic and biodynamic farming practices since 2007.
