Duck Pond Cellars opened their doors to the public for the first time on Memorial Day Weekend of 1993 and is a family-owned winery through and through. The founders of the company are Doug & Jo Ann Fries. They were high school sweethearts who’ve now been married nearly five decades.
Doug is a third generation farmer and moved Oregon in the early ’80’s where he explored his hobby of winemaking more and it has flourished from there! They have three kids and each child has an active role in the company. Their son, Greg Fries, is now the President of the company, their daughter, Erin Fries, is the Tasting Room Director and their Daughter, Lisa Jenkins, is Duck Pond’s Vice President.
Their incredible wine has won countless awards and has been recognized worldwide. They hold wine tastings, events, tours and more! You can even be apart of their wine club to receive complete access to our full range of Oregon wines.
