Cathedral Ridge wines are delightfully complex with nuanced flavors reflecting the unique qualities of the region, perfect for pairing with your favorite recipes. Because of the incredible range of wine country microclimates, Cathedral Ridge Wines run the gamut from Pinot Noir to Zinfandel – with all from grapes grown within a 80-mile radius. They use traditional winemaking techniques, opting for small batch artisan barrel aged wines with minimal disruptions to let the quality of the grapes and the terroir of the land speak. They pride themselves on unadulterated Oregon wine that reflects a world of wine regions from Burgundy to Bordeaux and the Rhine to the Rhone.

The climate in the Columbia Gorge with the breezy, long warm days and cool nights, allows Cathedral Ridge wines to express the ideal balance of sensuous, bold, body and seasoning acidity. As they say, acidity is to wine as salt is to food – the perfect amount brings out the best. Like a talented chef with the freshest ingredients, their winemaker takes the best grapes, from the best vineyards and by skillful blending when appropriate, creates the best wines showcasing the region.
