Privé Vineyard is located in Oregon's Chehalem Mountains (pronounced "Sha-HAY-lum"), which is home to the Ribbon Ridge and Chehalem Mountain American Viticultural Areas (AVA). The mountains extend from Parret Mountain to the south and run northwest across Bald Peak and Ribbon Ridge. Encompassing over 100 square miles, the AVAs include portions of Yamhill, Washington and Clackamas counties. An estimated 150 vineyards are planted within the AVAs with an average size of 12.5 acres.Privé Vineyard consists of two blocks, Le nord and Le sud, that are entirely Pommard clone. The blocks are on Jory soil (red clay) that was deposited by lava flows up to 15 million years ago. The Le nord block is 1.5 acres, while the Le sud block is 1 acre; the elevations of the blocks range between 425 feet (Le sud) and 650 feet (Le nord). The vineyard was planted in 1980, and is just starting to come into its prime. Spacing of the vineyard is 5 feet by 9 feet, and the canopy is a VSP system. The vineyard is farmed using sustainable vineyard practices.
