J. K. Carriere Wines

From the winery:

"Our winery is rustic. It has the patina of years, the truth of age. This 100-year-old structure on the grounds of the historic Springbrook Hazelnut Farm Bed & Breakfast was once a hazelnut drying barn; it now operates as our winery. It's somehow more than a real barn. It's beyond wine barrels and an ethereal sculpture. It goes further than presiding over a beautiful natural setting. It's Oregon."

"Our winemaker came to winemaking through the cellars of eight great Pinot producers in Oregon, New Zealand, Australia and Burgundy and is guided by three principles. One, think about pinot as food and remain mindful of the acidity that allows the pairing. Two, from the vineyard to the bottle all decisions are made on taste and personal experience, as opposed to lab results or someone else's focus group. Three, the winemaking must be backed by hard science to ensure a clean, competent and ageable experience for our customers."

More About J. K. Carriere Wines

"The wines are built at the knife-edge of maximum taste and balance utilizing wild yeast ferments, wild malo-lactic, no fining, no filtering. Blocks are kept separate and when stable, just as in Burgundy, we blend. Or more correctly, ponder it. If it's both complete and head-and-shoulders above, we consider single-vineyard status. Otherwise it's on to six weeks of rigorous blending trials and best vs. best comparisons whereby we strive for the ultimate net-sum-gain, our Willamette Valley Pinot Noir."
