The Drouhin Family’s winemaking roots run deep, having taken hold in Burgundy’s best vineyards more than a century ago. Through the years, there has been a very clear link, a continuum, that inhabits Maison Joseph Drouhin, and now Domaine Drouhin Oregon (DDO).
Their estate winery in the Dundee Hills creates elegant, fine Pinot Noir and Chardonnay wines forged from our family’s tradition of fine winemaking in France. For more than 30 years, the Drouhin Family has brought a wealth of hard-earned experience to their vineyards in the Willamette Valley.
Poised atop the Dundee Hills, with gentle slopes that capture the breezes and sunshine, the 235-acre estate overlooking the Willamette Valley produces some of the finest Pinot Noir and Chardonnay fruit in the world.
Everything planted at DDO is unique to the estate. They also have two large blocks of rootstock planted on the estate, so they can graft the cuttings onto rootstock that they have grown themselves. The DDO team grows and plants rootstocks that they’ve learned are well suited to the specifics of thei vineyard sites in terms of site elevation, soil depth, and moisture-holding capacity.
DDO's densely planted vines are farmed sustainably, L.I.V.E. certified, and tended to by hand when leaves and fruit are thinned; harvesting is also done entirely by hand.
