“Skills get more refined, methods evolve, but what important is what is transmitted from generation to generation: The search for excellence, the intellectual curiosity, the sense of values, passion, the respect for terroir...”
– Robert Drouhin, Proprietor
Located in Willamette Valley’s Dundee Hills AVA, Domaine Drouhin Oregon is one of the most recognized wineries in the state due to their ownership under Maison Joseph Drouhin, an esteemed Burgundian producer. The winery has been releasing wine since the 1988 vintage and is known for their Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. The family discovered the New World region thanks to several visits as well as blind tastings in Paris and Burgundy that launched Oregon wines as a top player in the wine producing world. Robert Drouhin, the third generation owner, recognized that the soils and climate in the Dundee Hills could unlock the vast potential of complexities in Pinot Noir and Chardonnay grapes in the 1970s. In 1987 Robert purchased land in Dundee and began planting in time to release wines in 1988, and by the following year their landmark, four-story gravity flow winery was complete.
