In Oregon, as in Burgundy, the Drouhin Family farms singular, expressive parcels of land. The Roserock Vineyard sits at the southern tip of the Eola-Amity Hills, in Oregon’s Willamette Valley and is marked by volcanic soils, cooler temperatures and an ideal elevation range. Farmed by Philippe Drouhin, Roserock is certified sustainable by LIVE. The Zephirine Pinot Noir is a barrel selection cuvee from the Roserock vineyard, and is a reference expression of the site. Zephirine conveys winemaker Veronique Drouhin’s dedication to elegance and finesse, and will age meaningfully for years to come. The name refers to the Zephirine Drouhin variety of climbing rose, which is known for its fragrance and beauty.
