Crooked Barn Vineyards grows grapes and crafts wine from Bordeaux varietals in Oregon’s Applegate Valley.

Crooked Barn Vineyards currently offers one vintage, our limited 2018 Crooked Red with just 25 cases. In 2018, our vines were still young and removing all grape clusters at this life stage is recommended for strong root development. However, we decided to leave a select few bunches of grapes per plant in order to produce one barrel of wine which would eventually become our 2018 vintage. Our 2018 Crooked Red is a red wine blend featuring 35% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Cabernet Franc, 20% Merlot, and finished with 10% Tempranillo from local Thompson Creek vineyards.

The 2018 Crooked Red heavily features strawberry, licorice and late summer blackberry. Its minerality and supple tannins round out this well-balanced medium-to-full bodied blend. As it lingers on the palate, this vintage delivers on promises made and offers more with every sip.

Spread out across five acres, we are proud to grow four red Bordeaux varietals: Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, and Malbec. Applegate Valley’s mediterranean climate and our south-facing hillsides develop flavor and quality in our grapes. Our steep slopes ensure that harvest can only be done manually, and maintenance of the vineyard is made possible only by the use of a tractor crawler. Our vineyards are a labor of love.

The property was developed in 1913 and has primarily been used to graze cattle and for a time, raise foxes. We have 40 farmable acres and have 28 beautiful acres of madrone and oak woodland forest. We aspire to maintain the property’s original spirit, the namesake of our winery included, the Crooked Barn itself.

We believe in the philosophy of organic farming methods and land stewardship. We strive to leave our land richer than it was found.

“The vision for Crooked Barn Vineyards has always been simple: excellent grapes beget excellent wine.”

Our Story

Thirty two years ago, Marcos and Heidi Martins left Brazil to forge a future in America. Together they built a lovely life in the San Francisco Bay Area but a life that didn’t suggest a future other than quiet suburbia. After 37 years of marriage, successful careers, and raising their daughter, Petra, a real dream came to fruition. From wine classes, winery memberships, and Marcos’ involvement with a local chapter of backyard winemakers, they orchestrated the conception, evolution, and final product; Crooked Barn Vineyards.

It’s exactly this determination and fortitude that propelled them from the life they had so meticulously built to a future that promised excitement, creativity, and freedom. When searching for a location, Marcos was aware that soil and climate would uplift his beloved Bordeaux red varietals. Heidi wanted a soil and climate that would allow for an abundant organic vegetable and fruit garden. After much searching, southern Oregon shone like a beacon. And nearly six years later, this choice could not have been more perfect. This is because though location is part of what makes happy vines, community is what makes a location great. Friends and community of the Applegate Valley have welcomed and supported our dream more than they could have ever imagined. Thank you all.

The vision for Crooked Barn Vineyards has always been simple: excellent grapes beget excellent wine. The quality of wine develops years before a bottle is uncorked, and this is why, no matter the time of year, if you look up at the hill behind the Crooked Barn as you drive down Highway 238, you’ll see a lone figure tending to his vines. His attention to detail and care is what distinguishes CBV’s wine.
