In 2012, Kelly and Duane purchased a beautiful Pacific Northwest vineyard, The Kelly Belle Chateau and Vineyard in Ashland, Oregon. The Roberts produce their own wine under the Irvine & Roberts Family Vineyards label. The grapes for the Roberts wine are sourced directly from their vineyard and especially produced for the guests of the Historic Mission Inn Hotel & Spa.
When it comes to food and wine, Duane and Kelly Roberts have an appreciation for creating experiences that are truly unique. Their passion for fine wine led them to Oregon where world class Pinot noir and Chardonnay are crafted by wine artisans and boutique wineries. In 2007 Kelly's brother, Doug Irvine established Irvine Family Vineyards, growing award winning Pinot noir and Chardonnay. The Roberts jumped into the wine world teaming with the Irvines and launched Irvine & Roberts Family Vineyards. The Roberts maintain an intimate involvement throughout the wine making process from the vineyard to bottle, and they are hands on when it comes to making final blending decisions from their single vineyard estate wines.
The vineyard is located in Ashland, Oregon, which was selected by Wine Enthusiast magazine in 2016 as one of the top ten wine destinations in the world. Growing award winning wines on the original 30 acre vineyard, the Roberts purchased an additional 28 acres in 2016 in order to keep up with the demand from a cult like following that has quickly formed.
Crafting only Pinot noir, Chardonnay, and Rose wines, the family continues to receive rave reviews and awards, wine scores in the 90's, and even their first vintage of Rose' was selected by Sunset Magazine as the best in class.
Whether at the Mission Inn, or at the Vineyard Tasting Room in Ashland, Oregon, the Roberts warmly invite you to visit and enjoy their wines at one of the Irvine & Roberts Family Vineyards unique European style tasting rooms for an incredible experience.
