DAYTON, Ore., January 19, 2022 – The world-renowned Domaine Serene Vineyards & Winery officially opened its Bend Wine Lounge in December 2021.

About Domaine Serene 

The Evenstads settled in the Northern Willamette Valley in 1989. Their spirit and passion for producing wines that rival the great wines of Burgundy led them to purchase and plant a hilltop estate that had just been logged in the now-famous Dundee Hills. 

Today, Domaine Serene produces wines from six individual vineyard estates, planted exclusively to Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. In Oregon, the Evenstads own nearly 1,000 total acres of land in the hills of Yamhill County, with 300 acres planted to vine. 

Working every job in the winery for many years, Grace and Ken Evenstad built Domaine Serene from the ground up, focusing on producing high-quality wines through innovation and excellence. The Evenstads have gained a genuine appreciation for the attention to detail required to make exceptional wines. 

In 2015, Ken and Grace Evenstad fulfilled a lifelong dream of producing wine in Burgundy, France, by acquiring Château de la Crée, the respected wine estate located in the birthplace of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay: the renowned Côte d’Or. They own 25 acres of prime vineyards in Pommard, Volnay, Meursault, Puligny-Montrachet, Chassagne-Montrachet, Santenay and Maranges. Making them the first Oregon-based vintners to own land and produce wines in Burgundy.

In just under three decades, the Evenstads have propelled Domaine Serene onto the global stage as one of the world’s most acclaimed and respected wineries. Domaine Serene’s wines represent the achievement that is possible in Oregon, one of the finest regions in the world for Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.
