Pinot Noir
100% Pee-NO NWAR
Pinot Noir is arguably the most revered grape variety in the world with origins in Burgundy, France where the best expressions can still be found. Pinot Noir is not only a tough grape to grow, it also shows miniscule differences in terroir arguably more than any other grape variety. Stylistically, it is generally higher in acid and lower in tannin but can vary depending on the location, and winemaking technique. It is very versatile with food, and shows a range of flavor from red and black fruit, floral, spice, earth, and mineral qualities.

The Bergstrom winery biodynamically farms 84 acres across seven vineyards in the Willamette Valley, with vines planted on complex blends of volcanic, marine, and loess soils. Grapes are harvested early to preserve freshness and aromatic complexity then vinified with classic winemaking techniques in order to highlight the intricacies of their vineyards. 

Josh Bergstrom, may draw inspiration from Burgundy, but his wines are distinctly Oregonian. Each wine in his stable speaks to the terroir, meeting power with restraint, balancing ample structure with complex fruit and spice flavors.
