Our Cumberland Reserve is the epitome of the Bergström style: the expression of a unique vintage’s character combined with the perfect marriage of spice, mineral, and fresh fruit flavors.
Estate-sourced from Bergström, La Spirale, Silice, & Le Pré du Col Vineyards in Dundee Hills, Ribbon Ridge, and Chehalem Mountains AVAs. Pinot Noir represents about 80% of the total Bergström estate acreage
100% whole-cluster fermentation in open-top, temperature-controlled stainless steel fermentation tanks.
ABOUT THIS PRODUCER
Bergström Wines, a first-generation American family business, is one of the most unique and lauded domains in the Willamette Valley. Dr. John Bergström’s Swedish heritage and the love he developed for the Pacific Northwest are the roots of this estate. In 1999, John and his son, Josh, established Bergström Wines. Today, Josh and Caroline, his wife and business partner, are celebrating 24 years as biodynamic growers of estate Pinot Noir and Chardonnay vineyards on the finest appellations within Oregon’s Willamette Valley.
Their farming program consists of five monopole, biodynamic estate vineyards spanning 70 acres across three of the Willamette Valley’s finest and most exclusive AVA’s. Each vine is farmed without harsh fertilizers, insecticides, herbicides, or systemic fungicides. Instead, Josh and his farming team focus on homemade compost, homeopathic herbal and mineral teas, and regenerative agricultural practices that coax maximum expression from the unique terroir.
