Natural Emblem


Cristom Vineyards is located in the Eola-Amity Hills sub-appellation of the greater Williamette Valley appellation in Oregon, United States. The four estate Pinot Noir vineyards are densely planted at 2,300 vines per acre and are farmed to produce low yields of around 2 tonnes per acre.

Cristom produces about 10,000 cases of wine that are crafted in an ‘old-world’ style, using native yeast and a large percentage of whole-clusters in the primary fermentation. Winemaker Steve Doerner has bottled more than 31 vintages of Pinot Noir.

“To obey nature is to be comfortable with unpredictability, to take risks deliberately and to believe in the inherent goodness of the earth. This is winemaking at its best. This is Cristom.”

As atrue testament to our relationship, this winery holds a special place in our collective Dhall & Nash heart – it was our very first imported American wine over 14 years ago! What a glorious first step on the path to exalting these wondrous Dhall & Nash Wondermakers.
