Winemaker Notes

Dark cherry red in color, the 2017 Le Pré du Col Vineyard is gorgeous in the glass. It has an attractive bouquet of sweet baking spices, like cinnamon, cardamom, graham, nutmeg, accompanied with notes of fresh turned earth, pungent dark cherry, cranberries, and citrus oils, as well as an umami, savory and sweet Matsutake mushroom character. It is youthful and taught with bright red fruit flavors, and the salty and sweet dichotomy of the vintage is perfectly framed with fine ripe tannins. This wine has powerful complexity and intensity with juicy, natural acidity. There is a salty, oyster shell type of an expression to the wine and a mushroom character that emerges in the back of the palate. This wine has a lovely textured, tannic finish that will require patience in the cellar but will drink beautifully for many years to come.

James Suckling
There’s a very complex nose here with a wealth of rich red and dark plums and a very succulent, assertive and balanced palate. This is built for a longer haul than most. Very persistent and enduring tannins.

Wine Enthusiast

The name means meadow on the hill. Spicy cranberry and raspberry fruit is showcased, with trailing flavors of stem and green tea. The overall structure is excellent, and this wine should improve over the next half decade and hold for considerably longer. Drink 2020–2030. Cellar Selection

WS 92
Wine Spectator

Svelte and precise, with refined cherry and blueberry flavors that build richness and presence toward fine-grained tannins. Drink now through 2025.

RP 92
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Grown on volcanic soils, the 2017 Pinot Noir Le Pré du Col Vineyard opens with a touch of tarry reduction, giving way to nori, mushroom powder, smoked cranberries, blackberries, dried leaves, pencil shavings, aniseed and dried flower aromas. Medium-bodied, the palate is dark and broody with a firm, grainy frame and good freshness on the long, perfumed finish. This merits another couple of years in bottle.

Bergstrom Bergstrom Family Portrait Winery Image

Bergstrom 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 fice estate vineyards carefully chosen from fice 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.

Ribbon Ridge is a regular span of uplifted, marine, sedimentary soils (called Willakenzie), whose highest ridge elevations twist like a ribbon. An early settler from Missouri named Colby Carter noticed this unique topography and gave the region its name in 1865—though but it wasn’t declared its own AVA until 140 years later, in 2005. The AVA is enclosed by mountains on all sides between Yamhill-Carlton and the Chehalem Mountains, and is actually part of the larger Chehalem Mountains AVA. Its soils have a finer texture than its neighbors with parent materials composed of sandstone, siltstone, and mudstone. Given its presence of natural aquifers in this five square mile area, most vineyards are actually easily dry farmed!

Thin-skinned, finicky and temperamental, Pinot Noir is also one of the most rewarding grapes to grow and remains a labor of love for some of the greatest vignerons in Burgundy. Fairly adaptable but highly reflective of the environment in which it is grown, Pinot Noir prefers a cool climate and requires low yields to achieve high quality. Outside of France, outstanding examples come from in Oregon, California and throughout specific locations in wine-producing world. Somm Secret—André Tchelistcheff, California’s most influential post-Prohibition winemaker decidedly stayed away from the grape, claiming “God made Cabernet. The Devil made Pinot Noir.”
