Domaine Drouhin Oregon
The Domaine Drouhin wines have received world-wide acclaim from the press and the wine lovers year after year. The Pinot noir bottlings are frequently awarded "Outstanding" scores from the Wine Spectator and Wine Advocate critics, and the Chardonnay was recently named "Best New World White Wine" by the UK's influential Decanter magazine.
The fourth generation of Drouhins now works in Beaune and Oregon: Frédéric is General Manager of Maison Joseph Drouhin www.drouhin.com, Philippe manages the estates in Burgundy and Oregon, Laurent is a regional commercial director, and winemaker Véronique has handcrafted every drop of wine at Domaine Drouhin Oregon since its first vintage in 1988.
Of the future, Robert Drouhin has said, "I would like to think that one day, people will taste Oregon wines, and particularly our wines and will say 'it is really true to the classic Burgundian Pinot Noir. Not a Côte de Beaune, not a Côte de Nuits, but uniquely Oregon."
The fifth generation of Drouhins is still quite young, but there is no doubt that Joseph Drouhin's great-great grandchildren will one day take their place in the family business.
