Cristom Vineyards celebrates its 30th Anniversary

/ September 12, 2022

As we release the highly anticipated 2021 Vintage of Mt. Jefferson Cuvée, we would like to take a moment to celebrate Cristom Vineyards’ history, values, and principles that have led it to become the iconic, internationally acclaimed Eola-Amity Hills producer. 

Since its establishment in 1992 by the Gerrie family, Cristom Vineyards has been committed to growing and crafting distinguished wines of place that honor individual sites and old-world techniques. Bringing together biodynamic and organic farming methods, they farm the land with the next 100 years in mind, resulting in the greatest expression of terroir. Land, Stewardship, and Craftsmanship are values that define Cristom’s history and foundation. 

30 memorable and unique vintages later, Cristom was honored again this year as one of the Top 100 Wineries in the world by Wine & Spirits Magazine - is 9th award in 12 years! This demonstrates the consistency and quality of their terroir driven wines and underscores the importance of their values. We are grateful for these achievements and are proud to have represented Cristom since the beginning.  

2021 'Mt. Jefferson Cuvée' Pinot Noir 

Consistently rated the #1 Pinot Noir in America’s Best Restaurants by Wine & Spirits Magazine, the Mt. Jefferson Cuvée aims to define the best of the Eola-Amity Hills in the Willamette Valley. The 2021 vintage may come to be defined by the near storybook ending to the growing season that allowed the vines to preserve fresh fruit characters in concentrated clusters and achieve greater balance in the wines in one of the driest years in company history. Overall, the 2021 vintage may reveal itself to be one of the greats of the last ten years.
