Cristom Vineyards - Exciting NEW Partner for Trellis Fine Wines
The development of Cristom Vineyards is the result of a twenty-plus-year collaboration between an engineer, a winemaker and a farmer – who are, first and foremost, stewards of the land. Founder Paul Gerrie hired Cristom’s winemaker Steve Doerner and Vineyard Manager Mark Feltz in 1992. Together at the winery since day one, they have consistently produced masterful and expressive Pinot Noirs.
The four estate Pinot Noir vineyards – Eileen, Jessie, Louise and Marjorie - are named for Gerrie family matriarchs. Each vineyard has its own natural variances in soil, elevation and exposition, and Steve strives to craft wines that are an honest recording of both the vineyard and vintage.
While Cristom Vineyards are widely recognized for their single vineyard wines, nowhere is Steve Doerner’s gift for blending more apparent than in Cristom’s hallmark Pinot Noir cuvées, Mt. Jefferson Cuvée and Sommers Reserve.
Steve’s winegrowing philosophy begins with respect for their land and estate vines, and the natural process of fermentation. The vineyards and winery are Certified Sustainable by Low Input Viticulture & Enology (LIVE) and are thoughtfully and meticulously farmed with a focus on quality. With minimal intervention during the winemaking process, Steve guides the wines from vineyard to bottle, producing the ultimate expressions of the stellar fruit Mark grows every vintage.
The story of the Cristom estate is continuing to grow and evolve as they began planting a fifth single vineyard in 2014 named after their founder, Paul. A spectacular east-facing site in the Eola Hills, Paul Vineyard will help Cristom to become one of the greatest wine estates in the world.
