Foundation founders John and Nancy McClintock run a small family vineyard in the heart of Oregon wine country. Vista Hills Vineyard produces premium estate Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris, with ten percent of its wine profits supporting the Clint Foundation. The vineyard is located in the acclaimed Dundee Hills, about thirty miles southwest of Portland.
Many wines are named after participating schools. Clint scholars from local institutions sometimes join the winery as seasonal interns, absorbing the many facets of the industry. The business, marketing, agriculture, engineering and more involved in running a successful winery appeal to a broad spectrum of students.
