Del Rio Vineyards sells grapes to a slew of
notable Oregon wineries, but holds a little
fruit back to make its own wines.
What You Need To Know
Much of Oregon is too cool to grow
grape varieties such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah or Viognier,
the variety that’s the base of this fragrant white. But Del Rio
Vineyards is located in the Rogue Valley, the warmest and driest
of the state’s wine regions. Founders Lee and Margaret Traynham
have made their 1,000-acre ranch into one of Oregon’s premiere
sources of warm-climate grapes, selling their fruit to esteemed
wineries such as Domaine Serene, Bethel Heights, Erath
and Penner Ash. A few years ago they got into the wine business
themselves, converting a former apple-packing house into a small
winery and hiring winemaker Jean-Michel Jussiaume. A native of
the Loire Valley, Jussiaume excels with white wines, like this fresh,
and lemon notes.
Juicy acidity freshens silky
apricot and pear flavors.
