Who makes this and where is it made?

Veronique Drouhin and family spend their time between their well-regarded Burgundian wine business and their vineyards in Oregon. While not the first to plant vineyards in Oregon, it certainly caused a stir when they travelled from their native France to make wines back in the early 1980s! As they say on their website, French Soul, Oregon Soil!

Tasting notes

Attractive ruby red colour. Red berries and the tiniest hint of spice and herbs too. This is juicy and smooth, and between medium and full-bodied. An elegant and moreish Pinot Noir.

Drink dates

Now until Winter 2022

Ideas for drinking/food matching

We love this wine at any time. it's a great wine to impress a guest too, and interesting to compare this Oregon Pinot Noir with a Burgundy. In terms of food, it's a versatile match and will go with many dishes but the fruitiness pairs well with lamb and fuller chicken dishes as well as duck and sweet potato too. (Avoid lemon or citrus based sauces as the flavours will clash)
