Cristom Vineyards

Cristom Vineyards began a quarter of a century ago as a collaboration between an engineer and a biochemist who each possesseda deep-rooted respect for the land, the natural winemaking process, and Pinot Noir. 25 years later, second-generation winegrower-owner Tom Gerrie and winemaker Steve Doerner lead our tenured viticulture team in tending our Estate vineyards, and producing elegant, dynamicwines, recognizable by our hallmark style of whole-cluster fermentation by native yeasts.Our winemaking philosophy begins with respect for our land and estate vines. We’re proud to beCertified Sustainable by Low Input Viticulture& Enology (LIVE), both in our winery which we run responsibly, and in our fields, that are thoughtfully and meticulously farmed with a focus on quality.The four estate Pinot Noir vineyards – Eileen, Jessie, Louise and Marjorie, named for Gerrie family matriarchs – each possessnatural variances in soil, elevation and exposition. With minimal intervention during the winemaking process,Tom, Steve and team strive to craft wines that are an honest recording of both the vineyard and the vintage, producing the ultimate expressions of the stellar fruit were fortunate enough to work with. Recognized globally as a leading producer in our beloved Willamette Valley, our wines continue to be a unique blend of tradition, modernity and finesse.
