Goodfellow
Family
Cellars

Based in McMinnville, Oregon, Goodfellow is owned & operated by Marcus Goodfellow. A long-time wine enthusiast, Marcus devoted himself to winemaking in the late '90's, training with wineries such as Argyle and Westrey, along with mentorship by Steve Doerner of Cristom.

Marcus’s first vintage was in 2002, under the Matello label. The 2012 vintage marked the debut of his eponymous label, Goodfellow Family Cellars. Marcus worked carefully over the years to build relationships with small farmers who share his particular philosophy: meticulously managed and well-situated vineyards that are dry-farmed.

More About Goodfellow Family Cellars

The wines focus on terroir, expressed through carefully grown old vines, and traditional winemaking to craft single vineyard-designate wines that are transparent, age-worthy reflections of grape, time, and place.

In working directly with farmers, Marcus finds a more meaningful connection to the earth, weather, and vines. They see, feel and taste an intimacy of place in their wines. Part and parcel of the family business is cultivating relationships, to the vines as much as to the people who drink the wines. 

Marcus’s wines exhibit great restraint coupled with beautifully ripe fruit and are a true pleasure to drink. We feature Goodfellow Pinot Noir from Whistling Ridge Vineyard, Fir Crest, and Durant Vineyard, as well as an appearance of Chardonnay, also from Whistling Ridge and Durant Vineyard. Marcus also produces two other exceptional white wines, one of the best Pinot Gris in Oregon called "Clover," and the incredible value co-fermented blend called "Whistling Ridge Blanc."

We can't recommend these wines enough. This is one of Oregon's very best wineries. Please don't tell too many people about these wines as the prices are absurdly good values given their quality. Let's call it our secret?
