5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2012

Great wines and a view of the hills that is hard to leave. We lingered on a beautiful day and vowed to return.

“Great, Great View!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2012

Beautiful tasting room. Gorgeous view. A nice spot for photographs. We tasted a "library" wine, and purchased some. This was one of our favorite wine tastings.

“A bit disappointed and overpriced wines..”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2012

The main reason I went to this winery was because of the name Drouhin, a famous Burgundian wine producer. I was hoping the wines would be impressive enough for me to purchase in cases. The tasting room is situated on the top of the Dundee Hill which offers a breathtaking view of the valley. They have a patio area which is perfect if the weather is nice.

Tasting fee is $15 per person and it can be shared. The Chardonnay was smooth with good acidity and nice balance, but it resembles the Californian style more than a Chablis. The entry level Pinot Noir (a blend of multiple vineyards) was light and fruity but I won't pay $40 for it. The last one on the tasting menu was a single vineyard Pinot Noir that has tonnes of flavour and fruits on the nose & palette, great balance of alcohol and acidity, and a nice long finish. It costs $65 per bottle and to me that's a bit overpriced. Their Burgundian wines from famous communes such as Pommard and Gevrey-Chambertain are selling around $50. Go figure.

“Spend an Hour in the French Countryside”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2012

The tastings there are a bit academic, particularly with the Pinot Noirs, because they truly make their wines in a Burgundian style and they are generally far too young when offered in the tasting room. But this winery looks architecturally as if it were teleported here from the French countryside complete with lavender in the summer. Only the towering, snowcapped Mt. Hood on the 180 degree horizonline betrays the locale.
