Our winery is located in McMinnville,
Oregon. We realize this can be a little confusing because
the tasting room and estate vineyard are at the family farm
Our operation is a small one relative to other wineries
in Oregon at just 2,200 cases per year. Dai does all the
winemaking along with Julia Cattrall, his incredibly thoughtful
and outstanding assistant. The wines are all carefully crafted
with minimal intervention so that the final product clearly
reflects the vintage both in terms of weather and terroir.
Lumos wines are all vegan using nothing in the production
process that can trigger allergens.
Lumos is certified by
Food Alliance and Salmon Safe. We sought out these particular
certifications to clearly demonstrate our mission to address
sustainability in a holistic way - to pay attention not
only to how the grapes are grown but to how the wine ends
up in the bottle and to act on our concern not only for
the environment, but also for the well-being of the people
whose hands help determine the quality of the final product.
Lumos shares the McMinnville winery space with Patrick
Reuter and Leigh Bartholemew and their company, Dominio
IV. The winery is housed in a historic 4000 square foot
warehouse alongside the railroad tracks in downtown McMinnville
in an area affectionately known as the 'wine ghetto'. The
winery tasting room is now open on Saturdays from 12 - 5
PM. You can find us near the corner of 7th Ave. and Alpine
in McMinnville next to an old grain silo. Click
