Despite its status as one of the larger wine producers in Oregon, Duck Pond Cellars remains small at heart. Originally from California's Central Valley, lifelong farmers Doug and Jo Ann Fries moved their young family to the small Central Oregon town of Sunriver in the early 1980s. In 1990 the four family members crafted a plan to begin their own small winery in Dundee. In early September of 2018, Integrated Beverage Group acquired the Duck Pond Cellars winery. Since its inception in 1993, Duck Pond has been committed to supporting organizations which seek to benefit the surrounding community through wine donations and charitable contributions.
