About Us

Based in Junction City, Oregon, High Pass Vineyard was founded by Dieter Boehm in 1984 on a 20-acre parcel of land. For more than 30 years, we have been producing some of the region's best wine grapes.

Our History

Dieter Boehm is driven by his passion for nature. Inspired by the landscape of the Elbe River Vineyards and the romance of the wine villages, which he experienced while he attended University in Dresden, Germany. He planted his first vines at High Pass in 1985 and a few years later started producing some of the premium wine grapes that gained Oregon international acclaim. Local wineries were willing buyers of his early crops, but he always made sure that there were enough grapes left for him to learn about winemaking himself. High Pass Winery's first commercial crush occurred in 1994. Since then, we have continued producing exceptionally high-quality wines that have earned wide acclaim.

Seating Area

Small by Choice

Being a small-volume producer by choice, Dieter is personally involved in all aspects of the vineyard and winery operations. Whether it is propagating new vineyard starts, planting, pruning, harvesting, crushing, fermentation, aging, or bottling, Dieter has hands-on involvement, ensuring that each and every step meets his exacting standards. He also manages four other vineyards:

• Morias Vineyard • Priddy Vineyard • Union School Vineyard • Murphy Vineyard

Dieter's wife , Fridah , manages the Tasting room and has added a distinctive culture to the wine industry with her famous " African Night".
