Jim Sanders and Tom Mortimer. Friends and winegeeks.
In a word, Aubichon wines are “artisinal”…
…if there is an easy way to do something, chances are we didn’t do it that way.
Aubichon Cellars is about handcrafted friendships and handcrafted wines. Jim and Tom were able to slowly create a distinguished Pinot Noir with as much inefficiency as possible. You will benefit from the detailed quality of their labor.
The two 2007 Pinot Noir wines represent the inaugural releases from Aubichon Cellars – Willamette Valley and Reserve. Our focus began on the Reserve Pinot Noir, with a barrel selection coming later to create the WV and help elevate the quality of the final Reserve. Having the same treatment and heritage as the Aubichon Reserve wine, the WV has remained in our line-up, accompanied by single-vineyard bottlings arriving in 2013.
We were proudly selected by Wine Spectator as one of “Eight New Names to Know”, January 2015.
