From then to Now

Located in Sherwood, Oregon, about 30 minutes southwest of Portland, our 50-acre property is nestled in the Chehalem Mountains of Willamette Valley Wine Country. We were founded in 2007 by Jack Kemp, his wife, Willie, and their son, A.J., Hawks View's sustainably-farmed vineyards produce exceptional Pinot Gris, Pinot Noir, and Chardonnay. The Kemps created a brand and destination that members and visitors have grown to love. With the breathtaking views and inviting tasting rooms, our guests can gather, connect, and relax while enjoying world-class wine. 

In 2017, the Ponte Family became the new owners of Hawks View! Since 2004, the Ponte's have co-owned and managed two other wineries and a hotel in Temecula, California. They have farmed their 300-acre vineyard in California since 1984. With their purchase of Hawks View, the Ponte Family is honored to share the late Jack Kemp's passion for sustainable farming, crafting exceptional wine, and providing an authentic guest experience. 

Hawks View in the Future

Our exceptional staff will continue to offer the stellar service we are known for, but many improvements are in the works. With the completion of our new Members Roof Top Terrace and remodeled tasting rooms in 2019, we are now breaking ground by building a warehouse on-site to store and ferment our wines longer.
