Tasting Set Includes:
2018 Estate Chardonnay
This classic “Willamette Valley style” Chardonnay is sourced from our three Estate vineyards — the original planting by Founder Jim Bernau in the Salem Hills, Tualatin Estate planted by Oregon wine pioneer Bill Fuller in the foothills of the Coastal Range and Elton planted by Dick and Betty O’Brien in the Eola-Amity Hills. 90 points – Wine Enthusiast.
2017 Bernau Block Pinot Noir Sourced exlusively from 15 acres of Pinot Noir from the first plantings at the Estate Vineyard, Founder Jim Bernau planted these vines using a Christmas tree planter pulled behind his 33 horsepower tractor. He grafted the French clones 667 and 777 on a portion of the vines when they became available. 91 points – Wine Enthusiast.
2018 Pere Ami Red Blend
Founder Jim Bernau’s father, Fred Bernau, helped reestablish Oregon’s wine industry in the early 1960s when he assisted Richard Sommer of HillCrest Vineyard in getting one of the first winery licenses post-prohibition. Jim was 10 years old at the time, so he and his brother Jerry were allowed small tastes of Richard Sommer’s wines at the dinner table. From those small tastes, Jim’s passion for Oregon wine grew. It has always been a dream of his to make a wine dedicated to his father, the help he provided to early Oregon wine pioneers and the passion he ignited in Jim. Père Ami, translated to “Father Friend,” is just that.
