Bergström Wines believes that the greatest source of new world Pinot Noirs and Chardonnays is Oregon’s Willamette Valley. It is from this cool climate promised land that true terroir and classic, noble varietal expression can be found through careful stewarding of vineyards and wines. We believe in attention to detail, respect for the land and products of purity that pair with local fresh foods and can age and develop for years in the cellar.
THE BERGSTRÖM STORY
Growing up on Cumberland Road in Northwest Portland in the 1970s through the 1990s our family witnessed a cultural renaissance happening in our neighborhood and others which was reminiscent of a European community where neighborhoods, led by a wave of skilled and passionate artisan Portlanders, began supporting locally owned businesses such as bakeries, butchers, coffee roasters, beer breweries, wineries, farmer markets, organic cooperatives and more. Restaurants began to showcase dishes that were made up of ingredients grown within the local environs that were fresh and seasonal and spoke of Oregon and the Pacific Northwest. Inspired by these artisans and this new movement, we wanted to be a part of this movement and so we joined our fellow Portlanders in sharing our culinary discoveries with friends and family from afar, and eventually the world learned of Oregon’s rich bounty. From the beginning, Bergström Wines has maintained our mission of not only supporting Northwest locally owned and operated businesses, but of becoming one of Oregon’s artisanal producers ourselves with world class aspirations. Our goal is and will always be to craft great Oregon Pinot Noirs and Chardonnays that pair seamlessly with the unparalleled produce that thrives in our unique corner of the world so that we too may help to share the Oregon story with the world.
When John and Karen Bergström began Bergström Wines, they wanted to start a business that would become a legacy for their children and pay tribute to John’s agricultural Swedish upbringing. With these dreams in mind, the couple moved from Portland to Dundee, where they planted the Bergström Vineyard on a gentle, 13-acre, south-facing slope overlooking the wide expanses of the Willamette Valley.Learn More [ Back
