Overview of the Brand
Bergström Wines is a family-owned and operated artisan producer of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay which was started in 1999 by Dr. John and Karen Bergstrom, with the help of their son Josh Bergstrom and his wife Caroline. Josh is general manager, vineyard manager and winemaker and pulls his expertise from his education in Burgundy, France and his 14 years experience making wines in Oregon's Northern Willamette Valley. Bergstrom focuses on hand-crafting small lots of wines from their five estate vineyards carefully chosen from five of Oregon's six wine-growing appellations. All estate acreage is farmed Biodynamically and all wines express the wonderful diversity of Oregon's many great terroirs.
Bergström Wines consists of five estate vineyards totaling 84 acres that span across four of the Willamette Valley’s best appellations: The Bergström Vineyard, Silice Vineyard, Winery Block, Gregory Ranch and Le Pré du Col. Each estate vineyard is farmed without the use of harsh chemicals, systemic or fertilizers, and the winery produces approximately 10,000 cases of ultra-premium and extremely sought-after wine each year, including two Chardonnays and nine different Pinot Noirs.

Winemaker's Tasting Notes
An almost neon, dark raspberry color. Introduces itself with a gorgeous floral bouquet and an aromatic panoply of raspberry and strawberry candies, citrusy-lemon or grapefruit, and notes of black tea, sweet loamy earth, and mushroom broth. Silky, smooth, bright, and energetic on the palate. Darker fruited in flavor than in aroma with cherries, blackberries, and red plum.
96 Points - James Suckling
This is a bold, richly structured pinot with a wealth of darker-cherry and plum aromas, as well as freshly turned earth and leafy, autumnal tones, forest wood and fresh tobacco. The palate has strikingly mouth-coating tannins that carry ripe and succulent dark-cherry, plum and cocoa-nib flavors.
94 Points - Wine Spectator
Polished and expressive, with rose petal, black raspberry and spiced tea flavors that expand and flesh out on the savory finish.
93 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Medium ruby-purple, the 2019 Pinot Noir Gregory Ranch has pretty aromas of berry fruit, orange peel, wildflower and autumnal earthy accents. The palate has intense spicy fruits, bright freshness and polished tannins, gliding seamlessly into a long, layered finish.
