  • CAPTIVATING. EXCEPTIONAL.

    ADVENTUROUS. WORLD-CLASS.

    Were not doing it for praisewere just obsessed

    with quality. But when you have a cast of

    characters who are so in love with this pursuit;

    who are this creative and willing to take risks

    well, with great risk comes great reward.

    What makes the wines so good? Start with the vines

    which seem to like Oregon's combination of soils and

    climate. Growers and winemakers have climbed a steep

    learning curve, largely while sharing their expertise with

    one another. They learned how to coax the character and

    personality from grapes capable of greatness.

    But what has me most enamored and captivated

    with the wines of Oregon are the many talented

    vintners that have the spirit and drive to turn vintage

    variation and (what could be) tribulation into vintage

    sensation with inspiration.

    I can't think of another region that is

    producing such a compelling collection of

    pure, vibrant, varietally correct wines that

    excite the palate and please the

    pocketbook.

    Today we are celebrating Oregon's diversity and

    its emergence in particular as the country's top

    source for white wines... I know that when I look

    for a domestic white wine, more often than not

    I reach for something from Oregon.

    Oregons modern winemaking era recently

    passed the half century mark, and its really just

    in the past two decades that its industry growth

    has accelerated Oregons grape growers and

    vintners have accomplished near miracles in a

    very short time.

    Pinot noir from Willamette Valley stands out, with many of the best selling for

    less than $50.

  • MATT KRAMER

    Wine Spectator

    Here again, it seems like Oregon Pinot Noir has been a

    train forever pulling into the success station. But 2016

    promises to be more than merely a breakout year.

    Rather, it will likely be the year when Oregon Pinot Noir

    institutionalizes itself on wine lists everywhere, as well

    as in many wine drinkers' private cellars.

  • MATT KRAMER

    Wine Spectator

    The overall quality of winemaking skill in Oregon

    has increased dramatically in the past decade.

    The odds of landing on a reasonably ripe-tasting,

    well-made, not excessively oaky Oregon Pinot Noir

    are far better today than ever before.

    Vinous

    Its still possible to buy some of the states best Pinots

    for $50 or less, and thats something that no other

    world-class region that grows Pinot can claim.

    In a world in which $50+ village-level Burgundies and

    $150 premier cru wines (lets not even talk about grand

    crus) have become the norm, Oregons best examples are

    looking like outright steals these days.

    The Pinot Noirs that I tasted from some top

    producers [in Oregon] ranged from good to

    exceptionally good.

    The overall quality was impressively high.

    the Willamette Valley is a place where

    the pinot noir ideals of finesse and grace

    can be consistently met, even in

    entry-level wines.

  • ERIC ASIMOV

    The New York Times

    Many other wine regions around the world have

    staked their claims as suitable homes for pinot

    noir. Not all have been consistently successful, but

    the Willamette Valley of Oregon, in its roughly

    50-year history as a wine region, has proved to be

    one of the best.

  • CHRISTY CANTERBURY, MW

    A Tim Atkins MW Special Report

    I believe Oregon will prove to be the

    best Pinot Noir terroir in the US,

    especially where age-worthiness is

    taken into account.

    Snooth

    It's a very exciting time to be a fan of Oregon's

    Chardonnay. These are bright wines, transparent and

    driven by terroir. It's a market segment that the new

    world has been lacking, and Oregon is getting ready

    to make some big noise here. So get on this boat

    before it leaves the dock.

    Wine Spectator

    The interplay of vivid flavors against a razor-sharp,

    mouthwatering balance has emerged as the signature

    style of Oregon Chardonnay, while more and more

    versions hit the sweet spot of vibrancy and character.

    The Wine Advocate

    Oregon Chardonnay I love Oregon Chardonnay! Give

    us more! They seem to have just the right climate to

    produce top-class wines full of tension and

    complexity, yes, quite Burgundy-like in style.

    I have become increasingly enthused by Oregons performance with Syrah, especially

    because so many of the wines are being made with a strong nod to the northern Rhne.
