Cristom Vineyards

Cristom Vineyards began a quarter of a century ago as a collaboration between three men: an engineer, a biochemist, and a farmer, who each possessed a deep-rooted respect for the land, the natural winemaking process, and Pinot Noir. Nearly a quarter of a century later, our winemaker Steve Doerner and vineyard manager Mark Feltz still tend these fields and produce our elegant, dynamic wines, while second-generation Proprietor and Winegrower Tom Gerrie carries on the legacy of his parents, founders Paul and Eileen Gerrie.

Our winemaking philosophy begins with respect for our land and estate vines, as well as the natural process of fermentation. We're proud to be Certified Sustainable by Low Input Viticulture & Enology (LIVE), both in our winery which we run responsibly, and in our fields that are thoughtfully and meticulously farmed with a focus on quality. 

The four estate Pinot Noir vineyards - Eileen, Jessie, Louise and Marjorie, named for Gerrie family matriarchs - each possess natural variances in soil, elevation and exposition. With minimal intervention during the winemaking process, Tom, Steve and Mark strive to craft wines that are an honest recording of both the vineyard and the vintage, producing the ultimate expressions of the stellar fruit we’re fortunate enough to work with. Recognized globally as a leading producer in our beloved Willamette Valley, our wines continue to be a unique blend of tradition, modernity and finesse.
