OREGON; THE AMERICAN WHO THINKS IT'S BURGUNDY!


A chance to discover Oregon terroir with Burgundy flair! Come and taste our wines coming from the most Burgundian of all the US wine producing areas. A franco-american marriage made in heaven...

In 1988 the Drouhin family embarked on an adventure which was exciting, promising,innovative and slightly risky! .... buying land in Oregon and making Burgundy style wines. The area chosen; the Willamette Valley was an up and coming area for Pinot Noir, where only a few pioneer wine makers were already installed. 25 years down the line, the quality of the wines from Oregon leaves no doubt.

In 2013, the family decided to repeat the experience and purchased a further 60 hectares of land in Oregon; this time in the Eola-Amity hills. This new area has potential to produce wines which are as good as their Willamette counterparts. A new chapter has started...
