ABOUT THE WINERY
We purchased Bryn Mawr Vineyards as a tiny garagiste winery in 2009. With a four-acre foundation of established Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Tempranillo vines, we partnered with winemaker Rachel Rose to diversify the site, adding Pinot Blanc, Dolcetto and Riesling vines among many new clones of the regional standards. For the first eight vintages, Rachel made wine in our basement and a former wedding tent. In 2018, we completed our new winery facility, followed by a new tasting room in 2019. The last decade has brought national recognition for Bryn Mawr’s Pinot Noir and Chardonnay programs, but it’s the playful, experimental side that has made us a destination. Acting as an important bridge, Bryn Mawr honors the wines that make the Willamette Valley world-renowned, while also pushing the envelope, defining what is possible in the future. Though dressed in impressive new clothes, we are still a small, family owned winery to the core. We invite you to share a little slice of our world.
