Ned Ludd is named after the 18th-century British anti-industrial folk legend, from which the term 'Luddite' springs. We pay homage to forgotten hand-crafted techniques and the European roots of great food and drink. Our goal is to work simply and preserve the spirit of the process. Our belief is that every ingredient we source has unique terroir. That each is a celebration of flavor derived from differences in the land from which it's grown. Seasonal ingredients are chosen carefully and every product is made from scratch. The foundation of our endeavor is a brick faced, wood fired oven. Not only our main heating element but truly the heart of the operation. Each plate is truly an expression of the Northwest seasons, and a celebration of the bounty of Oregon. Filled with the glow of the fire and surrounded by copper pots, gnarled limbs, wooden stumps, ceramic chickens and a host of kitchen artifacts we hope the restaurant feels familiar or maybe even a bit like home.
REX HILL, a legacy winery in Oregon’s Willamette Valley, has been making elegant Pinot Noir for over 35 years. In 2007, the founders sold REX HILL to the two families behind A to Z Wineworks. Case production was quickly reduced by almost 80% to refine REX HILL wines to be of the utmost quality and distinction.
A to Z provided the resources to refocus REX HILL as a luxury boutique brand offering special wines made with only the most careful attention to detail. The commitment to superior quality means year-round responsiveness to site, vintage and climate, farming with organic and Biodynamic principles, and careful hand-selection of only the best clusters at harvest.
In a gratifying recognition of this decade-long commitment, REX HILL was one of eight wineries honored at the October 2017 inaugural Wine Advocate Extraordinary Winery Awards in New York City. Receiving the only non-regional award for the Americas, REX HILL was named the Extraordinary Winery “Under the Radar” for both continents, “poised to become the next great thing.” This award continues the long tradition of Robert Parker’s discovery and acknowledgement of new and renewed wineries around the world worthy of note.
Producing REX HILL wines is truly a labor of love. These are now not wines we have to make, but rather wines we have the privilege to make, and are therefore wines made exceptionally. We are dedicated to continue refining REX HILL wines in the coming years offering the only the best for the REX HILL brand.
