About Us


We are Howard and Starlena Simon.  We have a small hobby farm on the edge of Gresham, Oregon.  We grow a variety of wine grapes, as well as apples and pears and berries.   We have a couple of hives of honeybees and an assortment of crazy farm animals.  We also do some veggie gardening, lavender for the bees, herbs and flowers.

Leaning Star is our itty bitty winery where we use our fruit and sometimes honey and herbs to craft up some fun wines that represent our area. 

I love art and use works from a variety of local artists on our labels.  Wine and art definitely go hand in hand.  You can see more of their work at the following links,
