Papa Pinot - Eyrie Vineyards


Recommended Posts

There was a great NPR - Splendid Table - interview with David and Jason Lett of Eyrie Vineyards recently. It was pretty fascinating to listen to. There is a link to the podcast here.




Eyrie was the first ever to win a Burgundy tasting in Burgundy with a US wine (Pinot Noir), first to sell a still version of Pinot Meunier in the world (usually a component of champagne, an illegal to sell as a still in France), first ever to grow and sell Pinot Gris in the US, first to grow Pinot Noir in Oregon's Pinot capital - Willamette valley.


And sad news - David Lett passed away last night.


Here's to Papa Pinot!
