In 1999, after working and studying winemaking in Burgundy, Josh Bergstom joined his parents as winemaker at their Willamette Valley winery, Bergstrom, where he remains the lead force today.
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.
