The Winemaker

Kelly Kidneigh came to Oregon in the late 1990’s to follow her true calling, to make beautiful wines. With a bachelor of science degree from Oregon State and a series of cellar positions at the likes of Eyrie, Tori Mor, Lemelson, Burgundy, and more Kelly honed her craft based on knowing that the finest things are made in small batches.

The Passion

Mad Violets Wine Company is truly a boutique scale labor of love between Kelly Kidneigh and Stirling Fox. Their combined experience of 50 years from cellar to vine bring together unrivaled  commitment to producing beautiful and delicious wines from impeccably managed certified sustainable farms. 


The Winegrower

Stirling is the freak at this party.  He lives for the chance to get it right each vintage as their are no two alike in the notoriously finicky cool climate of the Willamette Valley.  Only the most delicate varieties thrive here if you can roll with what the year brings and he loves the challenge life presents in this unique way.
