Come and discover our wines from Oregon during a blind
tasting of 6 wines comparing Burgundy and Oregon. A fun and relaxed tasting
where wrong answers are permitted!
In 1979, a blind wine tasting was organized by a
prestigious food and wine magazine and a wine from Oregon came out top against
the finest burgundy wines. Robert Drouhin unequivocally understood the
potential of the region.
A few years later, he sent his daughter Veronique -
winemaker of Maison Joseph Drouhin - to learn and work in the Willamette
Valley. She has returned to Oregon every year since then. In 1987, they decided
to purchase land used for wheat production in the Dundee Hills (Willamette
Valley) and began planting their first vineyards in Oregon: Domaine Drouhin
Oregon. In 2013, the new generation bought, further south, a second estate,
Roserock, 279 acres in the Eola-Amity Hills (Willamette Valley).
There are a lot of similarities between the two
regions even though they are separated by thousands of kilometers. Will you be
able to identify them?
