Cristom Vineyards

Located in the Eola-Amity Hills sub-appellation of the greater Williamette Valley appellation in Oregon. The four estate Pinot Noir Vineyards are densely planted at 2,300 vines per acre and are farmed to produce low yields of around 2 tonnes per acre.

Cristom produces about 10,000 cases of wine that are crafted in an ‘old-world’ style, using native yeast and a large percentage of whole-clusters in the primary fermentation. Winemaker Steve Doerner has bottled more than 31 vintages of Pinot Noir.

“To obey nature is to be comfortable with unpredictability, to take risks deliberately and to believe in the inherent goodness of the earth. This is winemaking at its best. This is Cristom.”

“What really sets Cristom apart from the other top producers of Pinot are their Blends.” -Paul Lucas, Great Wines of America
