Apolloni Vineyards and David Hill Vineyards & Winery Establish Joint Operating Agreement

 Apolloni Vineyards and David Hill Vineyards & Winery are pleased to announce a new joint operating alliance, with the goal of retaining the two specific brands while optimizing operational expenses. This collaboration is a unique business endeavor aimed at continuing to grow both brands in a competitive market.

The synergies of both Tualatin Hills properties have inspired this agreement. Both vineyards and wineries are committed to sustainable farming, winemaking and business practices; both are LIVE and Salmon Safe certified. They share a passion for supporting their community, with both engaged in local philanthropy and David Hill Vineyards & Winery achieving B Corp status in 2020.  The merger will strengthen the Tualatin Hills American Viticultural Area (AVA) and continue the legacy of Oregon owned and operated wineries in the Willamette Valley.

“David Hill highlights our ongoing commitment to the Tualatin Hills AVA, the most northern portion of the Willamette Valley.” said Alfredo Apolloni, Owner of Apolloni Vineyards. “By coming together we are doubling down on this cooler region. I am excited to join forces with one of its most significant and historic vineyards in our region. Combined we are a total of 260 acres on 4 unique vineyard sites, our two production facilities and tasting room sites craft and showcase diverse and exciting wines from the Tualatin Hills.” 

Both Apolloni Vineyards and David Hill Vineyards & Winery will continue to operate as separate brands, retaining their individual character and staff, continuing to create the rich and diverse set of products and experiences customers enjoy so much at each winery.  The joint operating company is owned by Alfredo and Laurine Apolloni and Mike Kuenz.

“I see an exciting and bright future at these fantastic properties as we continue to craft unique, exceptional wines in the Tualatin Hills.” said Mike Kuenz, General Manager of David Hill Vineyards & Winery. “I’m pleased to be part of the stewardship and growth of these businesses and continue to invest in our very special region.”
