We make beautiful, artistic expressions of small lot Oregon Pinot Noir and Chardonnay from old vine and biodynamic certified vineyards while pushing the boundaries of our capabilities each and every vintage.
Diligently managed native and whole cluster fermentations are common in my wines. The wines are fermented in oak puncheons, oak uprights, stainless tanks, amphorae and concrete to lend textural and aromatic complexity. The wines are often over vintaged in a combination of new and neutral extra tight grain French oak from prestigious forests of which I have unique access to thanks to my work in cooperage. I strive to show the true character of each site.
Within the label designs you will find images honoring my family, birthplace, our region and elements from some of my favorite artists. When you taste Authentique you'll feel the soul, time and place of the wine and understand that the wines are made with great care for everything we do.
