Willamette Valley


Based in McMinnville, Oregon, Goodfellow Family Cellars is operated by Marcus Goodfellow and Gaironn Poole. Combining 27 years of experience with Oregon wine and core family values of honesty, passion, and connection, they are the foundation of Goodfellow Family Cellars.

Marcus’s first vintage was in 2002, under the Matello label. The 2012 vintage marks 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-exposed 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 and Gaironn find 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, Bishop Creek, and Durant Vineyard, as well as an appearance of Chardonnay, also from Whistling Ridge and Durant Vineyard.

The newest vintages of the wines generally have a little baby fat to shed, which is why they are great candidates for the cellar. However, once a little air gets to them, they do lose their jammy outer skins quite quickly to reveal their deliciously true nature.
