This Oral History Interview is with Larry Miller of Stangeland Vineyards. Larry talks about how he found an enjoyment for wine, and how his family happened to own a site that was ideal for grape growing. From there, Stangeland was born and slowly grew, first as a vineyard and later as a winery too.

Larry also talks about the growth of the Oregon wine industry, specifically around him in the Eola-Amity Hills AVA and about the people he’s met through the wine industry who have been meaningful to him.

This interview was conducted by Rich Schmidt on February 18, 2022 at Stangeland Vineyards in Salem.


Some oral history interviews are conducted on site and may contain background noise from nature, winery, or tasting room operations.
