About Le Pre du Col
One of our newest and most exclusive vineyard sites, Le Pré du Col lies in the prestigious Ribbon Ridge AVA. Few appellations in North America evoke such sentiment and passion for Pinot Noir as Ribbon Ridge. This narrow and winding ridge of marine sedimentary soils does indeed look like a ribbon from the sky at just 3.5 by 1.75 miles. It is here that some of Oregons best artisan producers have carved out an international reputation and demand for Oregon Pinot Noir, and it is from these ancient, sandy seabeds that some of Bergström Wines most promising Pinot Noirs are being produced. This special region leaves an unmistakable calling card on its wines, recognized by their trademark aromatics of spicy sweet cinnamon and ripe Oregon strawberries and cherries combined with silky texture and length. In French, le pré du col literally means the meadow on the mountain, a fitting name for this beautiful, 16-acre Pinot Noir and Chardonnay vineyard planted by the Hill family in 2006. Bergström Wines and our farming team have managed this vineyard and its Biodynamic program since 2008, also the year of our first wine-club-only release from this new, potential-filled site. Le Pré du Col is a warm, south-facing vineyard at just 300 feet of elevation with sandy, reflective soils and sandstone bedrock that ripens Pinot Noir effortlessly year in and year out. With seven different small blocks of Pinot Noir selections on this property and one very small block of Chardonnay, our Le Pré du Col Vineyard is poised to produce world-class wines over the next decade.
