About St. Innocent Winery: St. Innocent was founded in 1988 by Mark Vlossak who continues to be our winemaker and President. We produce small lots of handmade, vineyard-designated wine from some of the best sites in the Willamette Valley. Since our founding, we have grown from 600 cases that first year to our current production of 8-10,000 cases, yet each wine is still handcrafted in the very same manner.

In 2006, 18 years after St. Innocent was founded, we designed and constructed our facility at Zenith Vineyard. For more information, visit
