J. Christopher Wines is a small winery located in the Chehalem Mountains AVA. Our wines are handcrafted in small lots and are sourced from some of the best vineyards in Oregon. Our specialties are Pinot Noir made in the traditional style of Burgundy and Sauvignon Blanc modeled after the great wines of Sancerre.
In 2010 Jay cemented his bond with the Old World by forming a partnership with famed German winemaker Ernst Loosen. Ernie and Jay have a longtime friendship based partly on the fact that they are both Pinot freaks. Working together to produce Pinot Noirs that combined Old World and New World ideas seemed natural. Together they purchased a beautiful 40-acre property on Chehalem Mountain in Newberg, Oregon. This is the home of the J. Christopher Winery and the Appassionate Vineyard, our first estate Vineyard.
We have a brand new tasting room, open seven days a week, 10-4, no appointment needed!
