The reviews are in...

We put a lot of care, thought and work into each vintage and the 2017 was no exception. That's why we're always grateful to be recognized! 

Wine Spectator just recognized 5 of our 2017 wines at 93 points or above calling them, "impeccably structured and refined" and "elegantly complex and expressive." Our winemaking team loved working on the 2017 vintage; a cooler year that expressed itself through a restraint and elegance that is just coming into blossom now. Thank you to our winemaking team for making this happen and to Wine Spectator for your recognition!

Oregon’s Willamette Valley is synonymous with pinot noir, but a signature white wine has always remained elusive for the region. However, a new grape is emerging—or re-emerging—and bringing new energy to a global favorite.

'6 of the Best Wineries in Oregon's Willamette Valley' from Afar Magazine

The Burgundy region of France is pinot noir’s ancestral home, where the grape variety has been meticulously cultivated for millennia by monks, dukes, and some of the most iconic domaines in the wine world. In recent decades, Burgundy producers have looked to invest in overseas projects, with several settling on the Willamette Valley. Nicolas-Jay is a more recent addition to that story, with its first vintage debuting in 2014. The Dundee-based winery is a collaboration between Burgundy luminary Jean-Nicolas Méo, winemaker and proprietor at Domaine Méo-Camuzet, and U.S. music executive Jay Boberg, who both lend their name to the label. Their efforts have overtaken the former Bishop Creek Vineyard, where winery visits for intimate, guided tasting sessions are available by appointment only.

What to Drink: Sip reputable wines like Momtazi pinot noir, a structured, cellarable wine with broodingly dark, earthen berry flavors adhering to Méo’s style in France.
