Cameron Winery

Cameron Wines

John Paul is both a brilliant winemaker and a killer humorist, publishing one of the funniest newsletters we've ever seen. His Pinot Noir and Chardonnay are made from some of the finest vineyard sites in Oregon.

The red wines are dark, unfiltered, big, ageworthy, with intense flavors typical of French Burgundies of the Cote d' Or. His "Clos Electrique Blanc" Chardonnay is a blend of six different clones, also grown in his estate vineyard.

John makes wines from grapes harvested from Brickhouse Vineyard, Croft Vineyard, and Abbey Ridge Vineyard. He also makes an Italian-style Pinot Bianco "di Collini Rossi" ("from the Red Hills," his location above Dundee), a late-harvest Riesling called "Eugenia." and "Cameroni". Cameroni is the whimsical name of a Pinot Blanc from Oregon's Cameron Winery.

Careful attention to detail, restriction of yields, and a strong dose of independent thinking make these wines a cult favorite.

More About Cameron Winery

John's Pharming Philosophy: The ultimate agricultural system is essentially a self-contained order in which everything is recycled and the only significant inputs come in the form of sunlight and precipitation. In striving to achieve this ideal at Cameron, animals become a critical part of the equation. Chickens eat grubs and kitchen waste, while in return nourishing the soil and occasionally providing meals to the local raptor population. Goats eat down and eliminate blackberries, poison oak and other plant pests, eliminating the use of herbicides and at the same time providing manure for the compost pile. Whey from their milk is also used to prevent powdery mildew in the vineyard. Honey bees pollinate and encourage re-seeding of cover crops. Finally, the geese contribute levity to the whole scene so that our vineyard crew stays engaged, reducing the need for outside entertainment. Cameron Winery was the very first certified Salmon-Safe vineyard in Oregon This reflects our long term commitment to riparian protection, water management and conservation of native biodiversity.
