Our winemaker extraordinaire produces elegant Pinot Noir and Chardonnay on both sides of the Atlantic.
Véronique Drouhin-Boss, the fourth-generation winemaker of the Drouhin family, has lovingly crafted every drop of wine produced at Domaine Drouhin Oregon since our first vintage in 1988. She also now oversees the winemaking at Maison Joseph Drouhin in Burgundy, producing some of the world's finest Pinot Noir and Chardonnay wines on both sides of the Atlantic.
interest in wine and the family business began when she was young, and
blossomed under the tutelage of father Robert Drouhin. In 1986, she graduated from
the University of Dijon with an advanced degree in enology, and decided to
venture to Oregon to expand her experience and learn more about the fledgling
industry that was beginning to take root in the Willamette Valley. Véronique
interned that year with Adelsheim Vineyards, Bethel Heights, and Eyrie. She has
returned to Oregon every year since then to capture the essence of what nature provides
in our unique estate vineyards.
In many ways, Véronique embodies the essence of Pinot Noir -- spirited, graceful, and feminine. Her wines at Domaine Drouhin have always been hallmarked by elegance, finesse, purity, and the capacity to improve gracefully with age.
