Domaine Drouhin

Jim Gullo uncovers some of the mystery behind the jet-setting winemaker, Véronique Drouhin-Boss in today's Food Day. Véronique impressively manages to craft some exceptional wines in both Dundee and Burgundy. Modern day woman indeed! Check out the article to learn just how she does it.

This past weekend I had the pleasure of attending a DDO (Domaine Drouhin Oregon) wine club event where there was a certain je ne sais quoi in the air. The tasting room and cellar were full of what I like to call "Oregon chic". There was just something different about this audience, and I liked it. Not only are the DD wines (especially the 2000 Pinot) noteworthy, the ambiance left us feeling like we had enjoyed a little European getaway-right here in Oregon.
