Pioneering Oregon Wineries


James Scott Winery
Early 1990’s-Mid 1990’s?

Back in the early 1990’s owner/winemaker Jim Howard made his first wines at Veritas Winery in Newberg. He made Pinot Noir in 1991-1993 and possibly 1995.  He was planning to make Pinot Gris, Chardonnay, and Riesling but it is not known if they were ever made and released.

It would also be interesting to discovery the background on the name “James Scott”.

It is not clear what ever became of the James Scott Winery.
