Established in 1987, Domaine Drouhin Oregon is owned by the Drouhin Family of Burgundy (Maison Joseph Drouhin). Fourth-generation winemaker Véronique Drouhin-Boss produces wines of distinction, balance, elegance and longevity. Philippe Drouhin, who oversees the family vineyards in Burgundy and Oregon, is responsible for the 225-acre estate. Today, 130 acres are under vine and are certified sustainable by L.I.V.E. The family’s principled approach to viticulture and winemaking, and long experience with Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, have earned an international reputation for excellence.
