My first job in the wine business was as a buyer for a wine shop that was owned by two eccentric Frenchmen. We tasted together, ate together, opened a business together, and traveled to France together. I learned more about wine from those experiences with them than any book or class could ever afford me.
'Coury' Old Vine Sémillon 2013
This wine is wild. It has high acids, a whiff of mushroom, jalapeño leaf, citrus rind, and lanolin. If you are familiar with sémillon from Bordeaux, this might not be the wine for you. If you have never experienced sémillon before, this wine will take you on a ride.
Charles Coury planted the first sémillon vines in the Northwest back in 1965. Mr. Coury believed in the potential of Oregon’s cool climate regions, and planted these vines on their own roots in the hills above Forest Grove. Our grapes come from that original block, making them the oldest known sémillon in the Northwest.
We are honored to offer you this piece of Oregon wine history.
